If you believe them? "I left. Multiple Physical Assaults". "It's horrifying. I left", she wrote, not naming her abuser or "NCIS" directly. "But there are out sourcing articles on the market that are telling entire lies in me". She changed her mind due to the tabloid reports, saying she had stayed silent to "protect my crew, jobs and so many people". But at what cost?

But in a series of new tweets, Perrette implied that her departure was on the back of "multiple physical assaults".

Alluding to issues with her co-star, Mark Harmon, she noted that she has been trying to remain calm.

A few hours after the initial tweets, she added "I've been supporting [anti]-bullying programs forever". But now that I KNOW because it was ME! If it's school or work you're required to go to? "It really makes me sad".

Perrette took to Twitter on May 13 to announce to her followers that she was sitting on a secret about the series' production in an effort to spare some crew members potential scrutiny.

Perrette's final episode of NCIS aired May 8 and drew a season-high 14.8 million viewers. "Tell someone", the actress who played Abby Sciuto continued.

"There is just a &lsquo&system' trying to keep my hushed, also consuming FALSE stories relating to me". We took the matter seriously and worked with her to find a resolution. I hope everyone will love and enjoy everything Abby not only for the rest of the season ... but for everything she has given all of us for 16 years.

While Perrette names no names, her accusations come amidst a cultural reckoning against toxic Hollywood behavior against women. The Canadian actor and musician alleges that Perrette has sent him handwritten death threats, and that she once climbed through his bedroom window in the middle of the night and attacked a female friend. 'It was a decision I made previous year.

CNN has reached out to reps for CBS for comment, as well as Perrette for additional comment.

She said previous year that she was raped in high school by a football player, leading to an "abusive relationship", the HuffPost wrote.
