Jennette McCurdy Says Nickelodeon Offered $300,000 in Hush Money to Keep Quiet About Abuse

"iCarly star Jennette McCurdy is speaking out about her time working at Nickelodeon through her new memoir I'm Glad My Mom Died and among the other damning and heartbreaking revelations about what went on behind the scenes, she revealed that the company offered her $300,000 in "hush money" to keep quiet about her abuse under "The Creator." The excerpt released by Vanity Fair includes details on the interactions she had with company agents following her spinoff show Sam & Cat's cancellation and her subsequent departure from Nickelodeon.

Back at the time of iCarly's run, McCurdy had broken out as a star opposite Miranda Cosgrove and was offered the chance to star opposite Arianna Grande in a spin-off. During discussions for her contract for the show, however, McCurdy described being abused by "The Creator" who not only emotionally manipulated her but also pushed her to consume alcohol at only 18 and inappropriately massaged her shoulders without her consent. She described being fearful of stopping him due to the power dynamic at the time, saying, "My shoulders do have a lot of knots in them, but I don’t want The Creator to be the one rubbing them out. I want to say something, to tell him to stop, but I’m so scared of offending him."

In her final days at Nickelodeon, McCurdy described a hopeless feeling after spending so many years of her life in the "phony, bizarre sphere" of the company. When her show was finally canceled, she was approached by agents who offered her "hush money" while disguising it as a "thank-you gift" from Nickelodeon. McCurdy writes that one of her managers told her "They’re giving you three hundred thousand dollars and the only thing they want you to do is never talk publicly about your experience at Nickelodeon.” Expressing her outrage, she said in the memoir:

What the f---? Nickelodeon is offering me $300,000 in hush money to not talk publicly about my experience on the show? My personal experience of The Creator’s abuse? This is a network with shows made for children. Shouldn’t they have some sort of moral compass? Shouldn’t they at least try to report to some sort of ethical standard?

McCurdy doesn't elaborate on who "The Creator" is, but it's not difficult to guess. Dan Schneider, the man behind some of Nickelodeon's biggest shows, including iCarly, Sam & Cat, Zoey 101, and Drake & Josh among others, has been dogged by allegations of abuse in the workplace both from former cast members and employees. In 2018, he finally departed from the network amidst investigations from ViacomCBS. The results of those investigations were published in 2021 and, according to the New York Times, concluded that Schneider had a temper and was prone to verbally abusing co-workers.

Moreover, several actors interviewed claimed Schneider had asked them to give him massages, and it was clear he'd often text actors outside work hours. This is all without considering the general unease felt by audiences about how he seemed to treat child actors and claims of s*xualizing actors in their shows.

Nobody from Nickelodeon has publicly pointed the finger at Schneider for his actions, but what happened to McCurdy was not an entirely unknown occurrence. Stories like these only back what the public has had a general idea of for years. These are only allegations, but combined with the years of suspicion surrounding Nickelodeon and Schneider, it's a troubling image for the network and heartbreaking for all who suffered.

McCurdy's memoir I'm Glad My Mom's Dead releases on August 9."

All those shows were after my time of watching Nickelodeon. I was watching Double Dare and You Can't Do That On Television back in the late 80's.

Even not being the target audience anymore it was obvious how the shows had changed with the kids (mostly female) wearing more revealing clothing and more s*xual innuendo in the dialogue when "The Creator" took over.

Kind of sucks because before I found out about Dan Schneider being over Nick I just knew him from Head of the Class which was of those must watch shows when I was growing up.

Been 10 years of allegations against Dan Schneider (mostly coming from the internet peanut gallery) and not one person done came through with receipts

Internet tried to say he was the father of Britney Spears sister baby, when really she was just smutting at an early age

The feet sh*t is weird. But that's honestly some corny 90s sh*t that was in every 90s show. "Feet are stinky and gross" is like a 90s trope. They used to do feet sh*t on shows like Full House and Married With Children













Dan Schneider aint invent it. He followed the wave

Whenever they ask any of the kids from All That, or the other Schneider shows if he was there smashing kids they say "hell no"

If he ain't got officially #MeToo'd for his money yet in this era, then there's nothing to #MeToo

Dawg, you hate me more than you hate him. Stop tap dancing for props.
Come on, dont be disingenuous.

Think about it for a second, the black former convict who now lives inthe bronx changes his name to infamous serial child predator of nickelodeon shows from the mid 2000s....

You dont find that bullsh*t ?

Why do you think there is a slap prop system ? The matrix has you bro.

I'm sick of these girls coming out 50 years later with allegations. Why not just say it when it happens? Trying to be on the best sellers list but nobody even cares for this broad. I don't know who she is and never watched the show but I do know Grande and that is probably the only one that would get abused to be honest.

Just by the title of the book should tell you what an emotional wreck this bi*ch is.

Here is the common theme that runs through all these when I was younger I was abused stories with all these bi*ches.

Now what ? What do we do now ? The damage is done. You're rich and fu*ked up or poor and fu*ked up.

What does telling the world do ? They have meetings for this kind of stuff, doctors, DRUGS.

Like ? Everybody wanna act like the world is a stage, when you reallyu you should just go home, struggle and have that f*ght and introspective exploration of self to get to the core of what happened and figuring out how to move on. It's not your fault, but it is your life. What you do is up to you.

The point is to do something with your life, not spend your life telling people and writing a book about it ?




Handle that sh*t in-house. I dont need to know and the idea that people hearing about famous person 2004056403 being in this postion in life should inspire them either. They too should do drugs, talk to somebody, f*ght.

This whole thing of I want retroactive justice is such a stalemate move. Nobody wins. All this metoo sh*t. NOBODY WINS.

It's just kicking over the fu*king game table cause you were part of a game, and you got used.

That's fu*ked up and that's life sometimes and terrible and there is nothing that can done about it. Cause money. Cause people look the other way, cause people need a job at the end of the day. Doesn't make it ok. But the events in your life happened that way.

Nothing you can do. There's nothing you can do.
