After leaving NCIS, Pauley Perrette posted on Twitter saying that she suffered “multiple assaults” while on the show.
She continued to write that she was forced into silence by a “very rich, very powerful publicity ‘machine.'”
There is a "machine' keeping me silent, and feeding FALSE stories about me. A very rich, very powerful publicity "machine". No morals, no obligation to truth, and I'm just left here, reading the lies, trying to protect my crew. Trying to remain calm. He did it.

CBS officially responded to her claims in a statement:
“Pauley Perrette has a terrific run on NCIS and we are all going to miss her. 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.”
According to Radar Online, Pauley ultimately left the show after losing show runner Gary Glasberg, who died in his sleep in September 2016.
