The beef between Doherty and Milano came to light when Doherty welcomed his Charmed co-star Holly Marie Combs onto his podcast. Let’s be clear in December.

Milano denied playing a role in Doherty’s departure from the series in an Instagram post he posted on February 3.

“I didn’t have the power to get anyone fired,” Milano said. “Once Shannen left, we had five more successful seasons and I will be forever grateful.”

Combs said in a response on Instagram earlier this month that Milano did not take full responsibility for his past actions regarding Charmed.

“I heard Alyssa say she didn’t have the power to fire anyone, which is ironic because it was really about power,” Combs said. “But let’s go with that and let me explain what she had the power to do.”

Combs said Milano “had the power to stop the process at any time.”

He added, “When the producers said okay, we’re letting Shannen go, Alyssa also had the power to say no, I don’t want that.” But she didn’t do it. She had the power to say no just as Shannen had said no. I don’t want you to replace Alyssa when you’re presented with the same option.

Doherty later issued a statement saying, “Holly and I were not bad on the podcast: my podcast, Let’s Be Clear.” In fact, we went in and removed anything that we thought would cause more drama.

‘We just told the truth because the truth really matters. “But we wanted to try to save you, the fans, from heartbreak as much as humanly possible.”
