An unnamed source said they believe that Mark blamed himself for Pauley leaving the show and wanted to make things right. "I left. Multiple Physical Assaults". She added that she allowed herself "to be bullied by a powerful man for way too long in a work environment until I finally said enough and took no more words from anyone, including myself that being complacent was 'good behavior, '" the website wrote.

The actress followed this up on Twitter a day later, saying she'd yet to tell her side of the story for the sake of protecting her "crew, jobs and so many people".

The scope of the situation is addressed there, with Pauley Perrette alluding to the mess that would be made if she spoke up about her alleged attacks, which would potentially put the jobs of NCIS' crew members in jeopardy. But at what cost? "There is a "machine" keeping me silent and feeding FALSE stories about me. Trying to remain calm. he did it".

"I've been supporting anti-bullying programs forever". And you know what I said?

'If it's school or work, that you're required to go to?

"I left", she wrote. Multiple Physical Assaults. I REALLY get it today. Stay safe. Nothing is worth your safety. Perrette has not yet commented further beyond her tweets.

Perrette's final NCIS episode as beloved forensic scientist Abby Sciuto aired last week, and the actress recently opened up to ET about leaving the TV lab behind. Canadian musician Coyote Shivers has filed a personal injury case against the former "NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service" star, claiming she threatened his life and tried to defame him. "There have been all kinds of false rumors as to why (NO I DON'T HAVE A SKIN CARE LINE AND NO MY NETWORK AND SHOW ARE NOT MAD AT ME!)", she tweeted at the time. We took the matter seriously and worked with her to find a resolution.

While Perrette names no names, her accusations come amidst a cultural reckoning against toxic Hollywood behavior against women. She also explained how she dealt with being stalked for years, and her obsession with true crime.

Reps for the CBS show have not yet responded to the claims.
