Eliza Dushku Paid $9.5 Million by CBS Over Sexual Harassment Claim Against Michael Weatherly

Eliza Dushku was paid $9.5 million by CBS in a secret settlement after she reportedly made a sexual harassment claim against her co-star Michael Weatherly.

The 37-year-old actress appeared on three episodes of the CBS series Bull earlier this year and was expected to have a larger role on the series, but she was written off the show.

The $9.5 million settlement that Eliza received represents the amount of money she would have made if she remained on the show for the duration of her contract.

“The allegations in Ms. Dushku’s claims are an example that, while we remain committed to a culture defined by a safe, inclusive and respectful workplace, our work is far from done,” CBS said in a statement to The New York Times. “The settlement of these claims reflects the projected amount that Ms. Dushku would have received for the balance of her contract as a series regular, and was determined in a mutually agreed upon mediation process at the time.”

The settlement was discovered during an investigation into the allegations against former CBS president Les Moonves.

Michael responded to the allegations with an apology. He said, “During the course of taping our show, I made some jokes mocking some lines in the script. When Eliza told me that she wasn’t comfortable with my language and attempt at humor, I was mortified to have offended her and immediately apologized. After reflecting on this further, I better understand that what I said was both not funny and not appropriate and I am sorry and regret the pain this caused Eliza.”

Macaulay Culkin Turned Down 'Big Bang Theory,' Throws Shade at CBS Hit Sitcom

Macaulay Culkin revealed on Joe Rogan‘s podcast this week that he turned down a role on the The Big Bang Theory, and threw some shade at CBS’ hit show.

“They pursued me for The Big Bang Theory. And I said no. It was kind of like, the way the pitch was, ‘Alright, these two astrophysicist nerds and a pretty girl lives with them. Yoinks!’ That was the pitch. And I was like, ‘Yeah, I’m cool, thanks.’ And then they came back at me again, and I said, ‘No, no, no. Again, flattered, but no.’ Then they came back at me again, and even my manager was like twisting my arm,” Macaulay recalled.

“I’d have hundreds of millions of dollars right now if I did that gig. At the same time, I’d be bashing my head against the wall,” he continued.

Pauley Perrette Responds to CBS' Statement About Her 'NCIS' On-Set Allegations

Pauley Perrette opened up this past weekend about the “multiple physical assaults” she claimed to be the victim of on the set of NCIS.

The actress, who just left the long-running CBS series after fifteen seasons, took to Twitter to address speculation over her departure from the show.

“I’ve been supporting ant-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,” she said.

CBS spoke out on Tuesday (May 15) and 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.”
