In a series of tweets earlier this week, Perrette - who played forensic scientist Abby Sciuto - talked about "tabloid articles out there that are telling total lies about me" and referenced her not "spilling the beans".
When she initially announced she was leaving NCIS in October of a year ago, she made it clear that her relationship with CBS was totally fine, and it had nothing to do with her departure. "I don't know", she continued.
Perrette wrapped up her time on NCIS on the episode aired on May 8.
The tweets from Perrette, who had been part of the hit CBS drama since its first season, have raised questions about why she was leaving the show.
"We took the matter seriously and worked with her to find a resolution", the network said. "We are committed to a safe work environment on all our shows", it read.

She said a "machine" has been keeping her silent, "feeding false stories" about her. Whether she was subjected to harm in her personal or professional life also isn't specified, though her mention of her "crew, jobs and so many people" seems to indicate the set of NCIS itself rather than any relationship issues. Now, CBS is responding to those claims.
"I want to thank my studio and network CBS". "Just know, I'm trying to do the right thing, but maybe silence isn't the right thing about crime". A very rich, very powerful publicity "machine". Trying to remain calm.
In response, the 49-year-old expressed gratitude for the support the company had shown during her 15 years on the programme. She says it's "horrifying" if you're required to go to school or work where the bullying is taking place.
While it sounds like the matter has been resolved prior to her NCIS exit, it remains to be seen whether or not Perrette will pursue any other avenues in the future. Multiple physical assaults. I REALLY get it now.
She concluded by pleading with her social media followers to: "Stay safe". "After a lot of thought, I made a decision to announce it myself on Twitter because I didn't want it to be turned into anything 'shocking.' Abby leaving is more than a cheap TV ploy".
