Breaking his silence with the press, recently the former Adam Newman of The Young and the Restless spoke to Australia’s TV Week Soap Extra magazine recently where he discussed the allegations surrounding his dismissal from the number one soap opera!
As many fans know, an incident with former co-star Hunter King (Summer) was cited as one of the reasons that Muhney was fired from the show. As to why Michael didn’t just come forward and say the allegations were not true right away, the popular actor related to TV Week: “I have never spoken out. I wanted a long time to go by, because I didn’t want to be this person who was desperately screaming: “I didn’t do it!”. The rumour was untrue. First of all, there is no one anywhere, of any official capacity, who ever made any of those allegations. If there were, I would be the first person to come out and say,’ Hey, now, I’ve got to take you to court because what you’ve just said is lies and I have to sue you for libel and slander.”’
