Eliza Dushku was written off the series and later received a secret settlement of $9.5 million from CBS after she filed a complaint against Weatherly.
Michael released a statement in a New York Times article about the settlement in which he apologized for his actions on set.
In her tweet, Pauley said, “This man… I love, respect, trust, and I KNOW. TWO decades of friendship and respect. The best. I love you @M_Weatherly Always and forever.”
