Michael Muhney lost his job on "Young and the Restless" in December, much to the shock of his fans. On January 4, the New York Daily News reported that his firing is due to allegations by Hunter King that he fondled her breasts on two separate occasions.

Although Muhney was let go from the soap opera on December 17, reports just surfaced as to why he was fired. The actor who famously played "Adam Newman" on Y&R was let go for allegedly fondling the breasts of Hunter King.

The 20-year old star reportedly complained that Muhney fondled her and made unwanted advances, ultimately leading to his dismissal. Allegedly, she is not the first to complain about his bad behavior and others have made comments and complaints regarding Muhney's harassment.

Muhney originally made an announcement via Twitter that he was cast off the show. His last airdate on "Young and the Restless" will be January 30.
