Sources say that Catt decided to leave after trying to get E! executives to give her a pay raise to put her salary on par with Jason’s.

A source told:

Catt’s contract with E! was up and she recently found out that compared to her coworkers she was being very underpaid. She found out Jason Kennedy makes significantly more than her, even though she does more work for the network and she was outraged. The network was not interested in negotiating with her to get her up to his salary.

It further added:

She’s moving forward though and looking forward to the next chapter in her life. She doesn’t blame Jason and Jason feels horrible about the discrepancy in salary. He loves Catt so much and was just as upset as she was to find out that she was being paid so much less. He thinks she will do amazing at whatever she does next and that E! made a big mistake.

Jason shared a video with Catt on Twitter on Tuesday captioning the post, “Sending @IAmCattSadler off with lots of love and memories tonight at 7 & 10:30 @enews.”

 E! News said the on Tuesday:

E! compensates employees fairly and appropriately based on their roles, regardless of gender. We appreciate Catt Sadler’s many contributions at E! News and wish her all the best following her decision to leave the network.
