Euphoria is currently one of the most popular shows on HBO. It went on to win multiple awards over the past two seasons. That being said, success can come with a price.
According to Page Six, one of the show’s stars, Barbie Ferreira, allegedly dropped out of the show due to a feud with the creator of “Euphoria,” Sam Levinson. The nasty situation was backed-up in an interview with radio host Zach Sang.
“Allegedly, she was having a lot of problems with Sam. Sam is a very specific type of director, and Barbie was just not able to handle it,” claimed the source, who had his voice modified to protect his identity.
“She just couldn’t handle the heat in the kitchen.”
The insider went on to report that Levinson was “making [cast members] cry” while working and would “scream at them” frequently to be able to “get the emotions out of them while they were on set.”
“It was just a disaster,” the source claimed, “but what I can tell you about Barbie is she don’t clean up after her damn cats,” adding that Ferreira’s trailer was full of “cat piss everywhere.”
The source talked about more of Ferreira’s departure and her allegedly negative attitude. The other actor’s and actresses were thrown in a negative light as well.
“It was that attitude of hers. These kids. Let me tell you something, honey. These kids get picked off the streets randomly discovered by the queen [casting director] Jennifer Venditti, and of course their ego is just off the roof,” the insider explained.
“They’re in the second biggest show in HBO history, and they think they’re all that. They forget this is a job.”
Reps for HBO, Ferreira, and Levinson did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Thirsty will monitor the situation regarding other performers for the show down the road.
