Jennette McCurdy Feuds with Nickelodeon over SalaryBy: Jerrica Tisdale - April 3, 2014
Recently, Jennette McCurdy became the latest victim of a photo leak.
The leaked photos showed the 21 year old in a thong and not much else. McCurdy claimed she sent the photos to ex-boyfriend, NBA player Andre Drummond. Drummond denies having any involvement in their leak.
On Saturday, the actress won the Kid’s Choice award for favorite TV show, along with co-star Ariana Grande, for Sam & Cat. Grande accepted the award on both McCurdy and her behalf, which immediately sparked rumors that McCurdy’s absence was due to Nickelodeon’s dissatisfaction with the leaked photos.
That same day she took to Twitter to offer her side of why she did not attend the Nickelodeon event. Her tweet states: “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. 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.”
She also tweeted that her not attending the KCA had nothing to do with the leaked photos; she said it was all about Nickelodeon’s treatment of her.
TMZ did some digging and discovered that the reason behind McCurdy’s anger towards the network is because Grande makes much more money than her for working on Sam & Cat.
Nickelodeon has put the production of Sam & Cat on temporary hiatus, with an unknown number of episodes left to film for the 40 episode order for season one, and no order yet on a second season.
