Jennette McCurdy Feud With Nickelodeon About Money?By: Emily Greene - April 3, 2014
A child star is causing some drama.
Color us shocked.
Jennette McCurdy of iCarly fame, and now co-star on Nickelodeon’s Sam & Cat, has been feuding with Nickelodeon, and many thought it was about her recently leaked “racy photos.” Turns out if you thought that, you’d be wrong.
McCurdy is upset that she makes less than co-star Ariana Grande. TMZ has learned that McCurdy has been trying to renegotiate her deal, but so far she has had no luck with the network. This further proves that McCurdy’s problem is with Nickelodeon, not Grande, like many had believed.
Currently production of Sam & Cat, one of the most popular shows on Nickelodeon, has been halted and season two has not been ordered yet.
Though a rep for Nickelodeon had an explanation for the halted production. The Nickelodeon rep said, “We are wrapping up what was an unusually long production cycle of ‘Sam & Cat,’ and everyone is understandably tired. We are going into our production hiatus next week which will give everyone on the show a much needed rest.” The rep added that the series would be back in the fall.
It all started when fans noticed McCurdy was absent from the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards. The actress even took to Twitter to explain her absence.
Her tweet continued on Twitlonger, “…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. 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.”
McCurdy quickly made sure her tweet was understood.
One fan took to Twitter to show her support for McCurdy’s decisions.
While another completely blames McCurdy if Sam & Cat is not renewed.
A rep for Nickelodeon said, “We have nothing but the utmost respect for Jennette and her talent.” If this is true, maybe a renegotiation will happen in the near future.
