Pauley Perrette Thanks CBS for Response to Her Assault Accusations: Network ‘Always Had My Back’

Former ”NCIS“ star’s comments come after CBS said in statement it ”took the matter seriously and worked with her to find a resolution“

Following a CBS statement Tuesday night that it took a 2017 “workplace concern” reported by former NCIS star Pauley Perrette “seriously,” Perrette tweeted her thanks to the network, saying: “They have always been so good to me and always had my back.”

The CBS statement came in response to tweets Perrette posted on Monday, in which she said she endured “multiple physical assaults” during her time on the show.

“Pauley Perrette had a terrific run on ‘NCIS’ and we are all going to miss her,” said the statement. “Over a year ago, Pauley came to us with a workplace concern. We took the matter seriously and worked with her to find a resolution. We are committed to a safe work environment on all our shows.”

Perrette’s last appearance on the series aired earlier this month.

In a series of tweets last week, Perrette implied that assaults factored into her decision to leave the CBS procedural. Describing “horrifying” abuse, Perrette said she never spoke publicly about the situation to “protect my crew, jobs and so many people.”

The actress said “a very rich, very powerful publicity ‘machine'” kept her from speaking out, including “tabloid articles out there that are telling total lies.” She did not detail the assault accusation any further or identify any abuser. Representatives for Perrette did not immediately return TheWrap’s request for comment.

CBS has renewed “NCIS” for a 16th season to air in the fall.
