Did Patrick Dempsey Have an Affair? Was That the Reason He Left Grey’s Anatomy
As Grey’s Anatomy fans begin to get over the death of Patrick Dempsey’s character, Derek Shepherd and rumors that the actor was fired from the long running series continues, news that Dempsey was having an affair has emerged.
According to Radaronline.com, the actor was hot and heavy with a staff member on Grey’s Anatomy, who was a lot younger than Dempsey. After hooking up with the staff member, Dempsey would refuse to leave his trailer. Besides the alleged affair, Dempsey was said to have also been upset about his lack of screen time.
As we reported before, Dempsey was suspended for being late to work and forgetting his lines. Throw in an affair and that just adds fuel to the fire. Once Dempsey was suspended the woman he was having the alleged affair with was transferred to the production office for Rhimes.
Rhimes is known to be a no nonsense boss. Having issues with the popular, Katherine Heigl, who was also said to have been unhappy when she worked on Grey’s Anatomy, she was fired and when Isaiah Washington was caught in a scandal for calling his co-star, T.R. Knight a homophobic slur, his contract was not renewed either. That is just from the set of Grey’s Anatomy. On another Rhimes series, Scandal, when actor, Columbus Short, had personal issues and was arrested for domestic battery, he was killed off the show. His contract expired and wasn’t renewed. Otherwise known as being fired. Rhimes is not afraid to do what she believes is right.
