Prior to getting married, Dushku was dating former professional basketball player Rick Fox back in October 2009.

However, they split five years later.

What has she said about Michael Weatherly?

Dushku testified before a congressional committee on November 16, 2021, detailing her experience of being “fired in silence” from the CBS series Bull.

She also explained her sexual harassment claims against co-star Michael Weatherly.

Dushku alleged that in her first week filming, she “found myself the brunt of crude, sexualized and lewd verbal assaults. 

“I suffered near constant sexual harassment from my co-star. This was beyond anything I had experienced in my 30-year career.”

The actress penned an op-ed in the Boston Globe and did not name Weatherly but alleged that he “referred” to her as “legs.” 

She continued: “He would smell me and leeringly look me up and down. 

“Off script, in front of about 100 crew members and cast members, he once said that he would take me to his ‘rape’ van and use lube and long phallic things on me and take me over his knee and spank me like a little girl.” 

She alleged that another time “he told me that his sperm were powerful swimmers.”

“These were not lines in the script,” she said. “They were incessant and demeaning and directed at me in the middle of what was supposed to be a professional workplace.”

Dushku alleged she confronted Weatherly and “specifically asked him to be my ally on set and tone down some of the sexualized comments directed at me, especially since he set the tone at the workplace.” 

She said that he claimed that “no one is more respectful of women than me. I grew up with sisters.”

Dushku also alleged that she found out that Weatherly texted the head of CBS Studios that she had a “humor deficit” and that “he didn’t want me on the show.” 

The executive allegedly told Weatherly that she “made the show better,” but she was “fired the next day,” according to the actress.

The New York Times revealed that Dushku and Weatherly had a settlement agreement in which the actor paid her $9.5million after the claims.

After news of the settlement went public, Weatherly responded with a statement to the NYT, saying: “During the course of taping our show, I made some jokes mocking some lines in the script. 

“When Eliza told me that she wasn’t comfortable with my language and attempt at humor, I was mortified to have offended her and immediately apologized. 

“After reflecting on this further, I better understand that what I said was both not funny and not appropriate and I am sorry and regret the pain this caused Eliza.”

At the time, CBS released a statement about the case, saying: “The allegations in Ms. Dushku’s claims are an example that, while we remain committed to a culture defined by a safe, inclusive and respectful workplace, our work is far from done. 

“The settlement of these claims reflects the projected amount that Ms. Dushku would have received for the balance of her contract as a series regular, and was determined in a mutually agreed upon mediation process at the time.”
