Ariana Grande Breaks Silence on Jennette McCurdy, 'Sam & Cat' Rumors

Ariana Grande is speaking out for the first time regarding the rumors surrounding herself and her Sam & Cat co-star Jennette McCurdy.

The 20-year-old actress/singer posted a statement on her Facebook about the whole situation, which became apparent after Jennette skipped the 2014 Kids’ Choice Awards and said she was treated unfairly by Nickelodeon.

“I hate addressing rumors and I hate gossip but this is really bothering me. Jennette and I agreed upfront that we would be treated equally on this show in all regards (as we should be, considering we each work just as hard as the other on this show). The rumors circulating about our contracts and our salary not being equal are absolutely ridiculous and false. I don’t know who’s putting these idiotic quotes out there but I thought I’d straighten it out and try to end this nonsense.

“As far as the show goes, I don’t know what’s happening because I’m not directly involved with the problem but I just wanted to address this one rumor in particular because I am NOT making more money than my costar, nor do I think I should be. So we can all move on and get out of our heads that this was a money thing cause I don’t play like that at all. I am, have always been and always will be about equality and fairness.”

    speaking about salaries, how unprofessional

    I don’t know any Ariana’s song, I haven’t seen any film/TV series with her, maybe i am weird or sth but her face looks to me ultra fake and annoys me so bad, she looks like 15 years old teen girl with fake smile.

    What cracks me up about this? Second time she’s had drama with a co-star. When you are the common denominator in every single issue you have with people you work with…what does that say? This girl is so quick to say “it’s not my fault!.” And it’s kind of unprofessional seeing as Jennette hasn’t even gone into specifics with anyone, but this girl has no problem doing so.

    i’m think that she is simply responding to rumours that were circulating about herself on social media. she has a right to defend herself.

    the problem is that what this girl jeanette said was so ambiguous that it left it open to (mis) interpretation & simply fuelled speculation about her relations with arianna.
