"Girls" actor Christopher Abbott "has abruptly left the show" after " butting heads" with creator Lena Dunham, PageSix reports.
Abbott played Charlie, Allison Williams' character Marnie's on-again, off-again boyfriend.
Season two ended with Charlie running a successful start-up company and the couple reconciling, making most fans happy.
But it sounds like Dunham will now have to do some re-writes for season three after Abbott is no longer a part of the story line.
“They’ve just started work on Season three, and Chris is at odds with Lena,” a source told the Post. “He didn’t like the direction things are going in, which seems a bit odd since the show put him on the map.”
Abbott’s rep confirmed the departure: “[Chris] is grateful for the experience of collaborating with Lena, Judd[Apatow ], and the entire ‘Girls’ cast and crew, but right now he’s working on numerous other projects and has decided not to return to the show.”
