Clooney denied her claims, and said he had no idea that Marquez had been blacklisted, or any involvement in her being shunned by Hollywood. She also implicated costars Anthony Edwards, Noah Wyle, and Julianna Margulies, who she accused of racial abuse.

Authorities said that officers had been called to the scene by Marquez's landlord who said that the actress was in "some kind of trouble".
