Ellen Pompeo Slams Reports 'Grey's Anatomy' Exits Are Due To Her Salary Increase

Ellen Pompeo is firing back at rumors and reports suggesting that her Grey’s Anatomy co-stars’ surprising exits are due to her salary increase.

The 48-year-old star took to Twitter on Thursday (March 8) to respond to the “unfortunate” claims that her $20 million salary is to blame for Sarah Drews and Jessica Capshaw exiting the hit medical drama after season 14.

“Its unfortunate that @DEADLINE chooses to try to pit women against eachother on #InternationalWomensDay #shameonyounotme,” Ellen first tweeted.

Back in January, Ellen revealed how much she makes per Grey‘s episode while also sharing that she signed another two-year deal with the show.

“I’m a big girl @DEADLINE can take shots at me if they want but to the fans please don’t fall into that trap. This is above my pay grade,” Ellen also wrote.

If you missed it, you can see Jessica Capshaw‘s reaction to the news and Sarah Drew‘s statement regarding her exit.

    Umm, Pompeo is the show even though I can’t stand the show anymore or her character. Therefore, her salary is expected to be higher than others. Earn your stripes to gripe.

    I think it’s time for the show to exit. The writers are running out of ideas.

    it’s one of the reasons for sure! She can’t lie and now she’s also a producer and her and Shonda can’t make me believe they don’t any power to keep Jessica and Sarah. Both of them have a big fanbase so if their fans boycott the show, the rating will drop.
