    Following Pauley Perrette's cryptic tweets about "tabloid articles" and multiple assault allegations she made after her NCIS exit last week, CBS Television Studios has issued a statement about it.

    In a statement given to Entertainment Tonight on Tuesday, May 15, a spokesperson for the studio said,

    Pauley Perrette had 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.

    Following the release of the studios' statement, the actress tweeted,

    I want to thank my studio and network CBS. They have always been so good to me and always had my back.

    Check it out.

    On Monday, May 14, the 49-year-old took to Twitter and with a series of tweets, she alleged that the reports made about are false and she urged fans to “tell someone” if they find themselves in an unsafe situation.

    In her first tweet on Sunday night, she wrote,

    I refused to go low, that's why I've never told publicly what happened. But there are tabloid articles out there that are telling total lies about me. If you believe them? Please leave me alone. You clearly don't know me. (Sorry guys, had to be said).

    Well, it’s not clear what articles Pauley was referring to, however, she continued posting tweets early Monday morning, explaining that she had kept her “silence” to protect her crew and co-workers’ jobs.

    She mused,

    Maybe I'm wrong for not ‘spilling the beans’ Telling the story, THE TRUTH. I feel I have to protect my crew, jobs and so many people. But at what cost? I.don't know. Just know, I'm trying to do the right thing, but maybe silence isn't the right thing about crime. I'm... Just... ?

    The longtime NCIS star continued,

    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.
