T.R. Knight to Leave Grey's?

MSN's The Scoop, is reporting that T.R. Knight who plays Dr. George O'Malley on Grey's Anatomy is leaving the show. Siting an insider:
"He was told not to say anything about the whole incident." Referring to the original incident in October when Isaiah Washington used a homophobic slur towards T.R.
“He kept his word, but then the whole thing blew up again at the Golden Globes, and when he was asked about it, he basically called Isaiah a liar,” says the source. “He feels that the atmosphere there is so toxic and unhealthy. I suppose things could change and we would stay, but for now, he’s planning to leave the show.”
Knight's spokeswoman told The Scoop "we're not commenting on that." Then later called back to say the story was "completely, one thousand percent false." A rep for ABC also said that "rumors of T.R. Knight's departure from the show are irrefutable untrue."

I really hope this is just gossip because T.R. Knight is fantastic on Grey's. If anyone leaves, it should be Isaiah. Maybe he'll change after rehab, assuming he doesn't pull a Lindsey and leave every other day. At least Isaiah seems ot have one castmate on his side. Chandra Wilson gave him a bit of a shout out last night at the SAG Awards when she accepted her award for best female actor in a drama:
"It's about those 10 cast members sitting over there and the other one in rehab. Y'all just hold me together."
