The actor was fired from the medical drama earlier this month in the wake of a homophobic remark he made about castmate Knight last October--a comment he repeated at the Golden Globe Awards earlier this year.
He says, "T.R. Knight was very tactical in trying to remove me from the show because he knows that I know, and I was gagged, that he has been working on a conspiracy to get Patrick Dempsey and myself off the show for the last year and a half.
"I know Patrick Dempsey has supported me by stating that if there is anyone that needs to be fired it is T.R. Knight because he has created such a negative environment on that set because he felt like he has not been treated and given the same leading-man kinds of storylines."
