Patrick Dempsey‘s exit from hit TV show Grey’s Anatomy was reportedly the result of him having an affair with a co-worker.
Dempsey, who played Dr. Derek Shepherd on the show, was said to be having an inappropriate relationship with a woman who worked on set.
Dempsey was reportedly caught by co-star Ellen Pompeo, who told both Dempsey’s wife, Jillian Fink and show creator Shonda Rhimes.
“Patrick had an inappropriate relationship with a young woman who worked on the set,” a source told In Touch magazine .
“Ellen Pompeo found out and was angry because she’s close friends with Jillian, so of course, she told her.”
Rhimes decided to fire Dempsey after, with the insider adding, “[She] has no patience for that kind of behaviour”.
