The actor’s character was then written off the show, meeting an untimely demise in a car accident.
“Nobody wanted him to leave, because he was the show. Him and Ellen. Patrick is a sweetheart. It messes you up, this business,” Jeannine added.
Despite the accusations, an anonymous crew member spoke out in the book to defend Patrick’s behaviour.
He claimed the actor felt isolated during his final season on the show.
“His behaviour wasn’t the greatest, but he had nowhere to go.
“He was so miserable. He had no one to talk to,” the person said.
