  • The singer demanded a retraction of Page's exit announcement and wanted to hear the news straight from the actor
  • Page tweeted that it was a "pleasure and a privilege" to have been a part of "Bridgerton"

Regé-Jean Page's departure from "Bridgerton" has left fans and viewers heartbroken—including singer Dionne Warwick.

Netflix and Shondaland confirmed Friday that Page will not return as Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings, in "Bridgerton" Season 2. Following the announcement, Warwick immediately made her disapproval known on social media.

"No, @regejean! You CANNOT leave me like that. I WILL NOT have it! @bridgerton!!!!!!" the Grammy winner tweeted Friday.

"I demand a retraction, @bridgerton!!!! I need to hear this news straight from @regejean if this is true," she added.

Warwick also posted an audio message addressing Lady Whistledown.

"Now tell me you are lying with that letter you just wrote?" she wrote, referring to the announcement of Page's exit. "About my, uh uh, he cannot be leaving. No way! I will not have it. And I want him to know it. I want you to know it. So I want you to make a retraction of what I just read, OK? I'm serious. I need to hear from him, out of his mouth, OK? Thank you."

A number of Twitter users commented on Warwick's post saying they completely agree with her and also wish to see the Duke of Hastings in future "Bridgerton" seasons.

"I FEEL LIKE THEY WILL LISTEN TO YOU! Thank you for using your platform to speak out on this important issue," one person wrote.

"I feel like you should call Shonda Rhimes for us. She’ll listen to you," another commented.

"You gotta let him go! He's got James Bond shoes to fill," Jill Hopkins commented.

Warwick was determined to get some answers and even made another post on Twitter before heading to bed. "It is getting late, but I will be back to check on my retraction request @bridgerton," she wrote.

Unfortunately, Page himself confirmed the news on social media.

"Pleasure and a privilege! An honor to be a member of the family - on and off screen, cast, crew and incredible fans - the love is real and will just keep growing," he wrote in response to the announcement of his "Bridgerton" departure.

Meanwhile, Page also recently addressed his exit from the show in an interview with Variety.

The "Bridgerton" breakout star shared that he was contracted for just one season of the show. He knew all along that he would not be part of Season 2 as future seasons would focus on other Bridgerton siblings, but he remains supportive and excited for the series.

"It’s a one-season arc. It’s going to have a beginning, middle, end – give us a year," Page said, recounting his conversation with Shondaland producers. "[I thought] ‘That’s interesting,’ because then it felt like a limited series. I get to come in, I get to contribute my bit and then the Bridgerton family rolls on."
