The actress filed a $20 million lawsuit against the show's creators, citing wrongful termination -- in addition to assault and battery and gender violence.

Sheridan claims she questioned creator Marc Cherry about the script one time, and he went off on her. The lawsuit reads: "'Cherry took her aside and forcefully hit her with his hand across her face and head. After she complained to her employer about Cherry's improper behavior, Cherry arranged to have Sheridan terminated from the show, resulting in her losing millions in future earnings."

She also claims Cherry later came back to beg for forgiveness, but she felt like she was in "imminent physical harm" during the rest of her time on the set, according to the Daily Mail.

Sheridan's character was killed off of the show last year in a car accident, which the lawsuit states is "unusual" for a main character. Sheridan thinks she was fired because she reported Cherry's assault to ABC.
