Ex-NCIS star Pauley Perrette has thanked CBS for supporting her after she raised a "workplace concern".

The Abby Sciuto actress, who recently left the show, tweeted: "I want to thank my studio and network CBS. They have always been so good to me and always had my back."

The network put out a statement (via Deadline) that read: "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."

Perrette has not spoken in detail about what led her to leave NCIS, but in a series of tweets she dismissed tabloid reports about it, and used the phrase "multiple physical assaults" – although she doesn't explicitly name the show.

"I refused to go low," she wrote, "that's why I've never told publicly what happened. But there are tabloid articles out there that are telling total lies about me.

"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.

"I've been supporting anti-bullying programs forever. But now I KNOW because it was ME! If it's school or work, that you're required to go to? It's horrifying. I left. Multiple Physical Assaults. I REALLY get it now. Stay safe. Nothing is worth your safety. Tell someone."

The actress filmed her final scenes in April, with her last episode airing earlier this month.
