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.”

Jennette McCurdy Explains Why She Skipped the Kids' Choice Awards 2014

Many fans were wondering why Jennette McCurdy was missing from the 2014 Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday (March 29) and now she is speaking out on why she was not there.

The 21-year-old actress, who gained stardom on iCarly, was nominated for Favorite TV Actress for her work on the spinoff series Sam & Cat. Her co-star Ariana Grande ended up taking home the award.

“A lot of you guys are asking why I didn’t attend the KCAs…. I wish I could explain everything as thoroughly as I would like to, but unfortunately a simpler explanation is all I can write. I was put in an uncomfortable, compromising, unfair situation (many of you have guessed what it is) and I had to look out for me,” Jennette said on Twitter. “I chose to not go because sticking up for what is right and what is fair is what my mom taught me is ALWAYS the most important thing. I want to thank those of you who have reached out with kind words of support, McCurdians and Arianators alike. No matter who or what you support, I believe in supporting fairness first. If you have done that, thank you.”

“My previous tweet has nothing to do with pics leaked. oh you guys lol,” Jennette added. “It has to do with how nickelodeon treated me. That’s all. Thanks for the love. <3"
