“Young and the Restless” fans are not only at war with writers and executives of the popular CBS soap opera, it appears that they are now at war with each other in the “Michael Muhney vs. Hunter King” firing story.

TMZ seemed to be the website that first broke the news on Jan. 4 of Michael Muhney’s abrupt firing, printing that several sources on the set of “The Young and the Restless” alleged that Michael Muhney had been fired after Hunter King complained the actor had groped her breasts on two separate occasions.

Fans are deeply divided on the issue of which actor to believe, and information has surfaced that Hunter King made romantic advances toward Michael Muhney and was rebuffed. After being rejected by Muhney, an angry Hunter King reportedly complained to the “Y&R” executives, saying that he made inappropriate advances toward her.

Comments from fans on the TMZ article included one that may or may not have been from someone close to Michael Muhney and his family.

“THIS IS A QUOTE FROM HIS SISTER all I have to say is that NOBODY should believe what you read or hear. Only Michael knows the truth. And there is NO truth to the rumors flying around.’ My brother is incredible and will go on to do something bigger and better and look back at Y & R as a learning experience. He has class and grace like no one else in the business.’ ".

Until one side or the other speaks out, fans are left with rumors and allegations that have not yet been proven. Reports say that Hunter King threatened to sue CBS Daytime if Michael Muhney was not fired.
