While it seems that the entire world has been abuzz over the recent news that “The Young and the Restless’” Michael Muhney (ex-Adam Newman) was reportedly fired for sexual misconduct, there’s been one person who’s been unusually quiet as of late: Muhney himself. And now Radar Online is reporting that there’s a very specific reason why the once vocal star is keeping mum!
According to the publication, which also ran the controversial recent interview with Muhney’s former co-star, Eric Braeden (Victor Newman), the Illinois native has been “muzzled” by CBS and Sony and is not allowed to talk about the sexual allegations launched against him nor Braeden’s interview. “Eric’s comments were off base and his version of the events is very different from Michael’s,” a source close to Muhney told Radar. “It’s very frustrating that Eric made these remarks, because Michael has been ordered by Sony and CBS to not discuss anything about the show or cast.
