After Patrick Dempsey’s final episode aired, the actor did release a statement, including an exclusive interview via Entertainment Weekly.
When asked about why he had left in the middle of the season, Dempsey said this, “(Pause) It just sort of evolved. It just kind of happened. [Being written off] was something that was kind of surprising and uh, just naturally came to be. I like the way it has all played out.”
He continued, “Things happened very quickly… It was just a natural progression, the way the story was unfolding, the way everything was unfolding in a very organic way. It was like, Okay! This was obviously the right time.”
However Patrick’s rep outright denied the claims to Mirror Online, and another dubbed them “ridiculous” to Gossip Cop.
His rep told us: “This is not true. It’s an absurd story.”
