Is Melody Thomas Scott Leaving Young And Restless?

My mom told me Melody Thomas Scott is leaving Young and the Restless. Is it really true?

Rather or not Melody Thomas Scott is leaving Young And The Restless seems to change from day to day.
She was asked by the producers to take a rather large pay cut and then told her character would be put on reoccurring status which she was rightfully so, very unhappy about and threatened to leave.

Since then she and the producers have been trying to work something out and depending on which magazine article/website you read, they finally came to some type of an agreement and she is staying (it least for now) or they couldn't agree on the terms and she is leaving.

It is true.

According to popcrunch:

Emmy-winning actress Melody Thomas Scott, who has played the longtime on-again, off-again lover of tycoon Victor Newman on The Young & The Restless for more than 25 years, has told producers of television’s No. 1 daytime drama to take their job and shove it after they tried to slash her seven-figure salary by forty percent.

Ratings and ad revenue are down for all daytime soaps, and slashing the salaries of some of the shows’ well-paid vets is just one way the networks are getting by in this recession.

So she's out
