Jennette McCurdy says something surprising about how her time on Nickelodeon came to an end.

Jennette McCurdy used to be one of the most famous kids' TV stars because she played a key role in the hugely popular Nickelodeon show "iCarly."

Some people don't like some of the things that happened on the show, but those who were young enough to watch it when it first came out remember it fondly.

It even got a new, more grown-up version on the streaming service Paramount+.On the other hand, McCurdy doesn't show up in the new version, and it's clear why:

she recently made some claims about her time working on the first one. According to a profile in the Washington Post, the former child star is writing a new book called

"I'm Glad My Mom Died" that tells all about her life and work during that hard time. The book talks about how she was hurt by her late mother and by people on the set of "iCarly."

In the profile and in her book, McCurdy also says some things that make you scratch your head about the end of her time at Nick,

when she was on the show "Sam & Cat" with the rising star Ariana Grande. If you or someone you know may be a victim of child abuse,

please call the Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-4-A-Child (1-800-422-4453) or use their live chat services.

McCurdy says that Nickelodeon tried to pay her so she wouldn't talk about her time there. The Washington Post's profile of Jennette McCurdy says that things on the set of Nickelodeon's "Sam & Cat" were far from ideal.

The profile says that McCurdy didn't like how Ariana Grande's growing music career gave her more chances to work on other projects,

while the "iCarly" star didn't have the same chances. Grande's first album, "Yours Truly," came out while "Sam & Cat" was on the air. Critics liked it, and it went to #1 on the Billboard Top 200 list.

"Sam & Cat" was finally cancelled in 2014, and McCurdy says that Nickelodeon offered her $300,000 to keep quiet about her time there.

Since McCurdy's memoir is full of serious claims that she was abused on set, it makes sense that she might have thought the money was an attempt to keep her quiet.

Leading up to the end of the show, McCurdy also talks about a specific event that made her sick of the whole thing.
