Young & Restless Star Michael Muhney Fired For Allegedly Groping Co-Star’s Breasts


0103-michael-muhney-Hunter-King-tmzMichael 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 … TMZ has learned.

Multiple sources connected to the show tell TMZ … 38-year-ancient Muhney allegedly bullied and harassed 20-year-ancient 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 standard character on the show, and fans are threatening to stop watching. 

Calls and emails to Muhney’s rep were not returned.
