Michael Muhney, a big soap star who played Adam Newman on “The Young & the Restless”, was fired last month after one of his co-stars complained to the brass that he grabbed her boobs on 2 occasions.
Multiple sources connected to the show tell TMZ 38-year-old Muhney allegedly bullied and harassed 20-year-old Hunter King, who plays Summer on the show. She went to higher-ups and complained recently Muhney had fondled her breasts on 2 occasions and she said both were unsolicited and unwanted actions.
Sources tell us the new allegations were the proverbial “straw that broke the camel’s back.” Muhney who is married with 3 kids had been a problem on the set for a long time, allegedly bullying and harassing Hunter and others. He even admitted in a recent interview with HuffPost Canada TV after getting fired, “Sometimes I’ve walked around with a big backpack of hubris.”
Muhney’s last show will air January 30th. Muhney has been an extremely popular character on the show, and fans are threatening to stop watching. Calls and emails to Muhney’s rep were not returned.
I know enough about soap opera’s to know that this may be false. There are rumors flying around that Hunter came onto Michael and he rebuffed her advances. Who is to know what really happened. It seem a little crazy that he would threaten to ruin his career for her. What are your thoughts? Post your comments below.
