Victoria Justice says she was not responsible for the cancellation of Nickelodeon hit show Victorious – a belief that has persisted for years.
Justice starred alongside Ariana Grande in the show, which ran from March 2010 to 2013. At the time the show got cancelled, the belief was that Justice decided to go on a solo tour instead of a cast tour and for that reason, people put the blame on her.
But speaking to a TMZ cameraman on Wednesday, Justice dismissed the rumor as false, saying, ‘I didn’t break up anything. That’s complete misinformation. I had no control over leaving the show or the show ending. That was completely up to Nickelodeon and the executives. I loved the cast, and I loved doing Victorious. Me going on tour when I did had nothing to do with whether or not there was a Victorious tour.’
‘I don’t think it’s fair to blame it on me, because I don’t think it’s true,’ she added.
When asked whether there was a falling-out between her and Grande, the actress replied, ‘There’s no feud. We’re not best friends, but at the end of the day I wish her well, and she’s doing great and I’m happy for her. We’re on different paths, doing our own thing.’
