Ariana Grande Finally Addresses Sam & Cat Drama With Lengthy Facebook Statement

By  | 

One story that has had everyone talking this week is all the rumors surrounding Ariana Grande and Jennette McCurdy's Nickelodeon show Sam & Cat. First, Jennette shared why she ditched the Kids' Choice Awards last Saturday, then reports started swirling that the show was on the verge of cancellation, and much of the cancellation rumors had to do with tension between Ariana and Jennette over money.

Well, the "Right There" singer released a statement, and is hoping to put all these rumors and reports to rest. Ariana said (via Facebook):

"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."
