More information is coming out— pardon the pun— about the behind-the-scenes drama that allegedly led to Chris Engen (soon-to-be-ex-Adam) bolting from The Young and the Restless in the middle of his contract. According to TV Guide Canada's Nelson Branco's sources, it was the writers decision to have Adam sleep with Rafe (Yani Gelman), that caused Engen to jet quicker than you could say Brokeback Genoa City!

On June 24, fans are forced to say goodbye to Chris Engen as Adam. The next day, Michael Muhney replaces him as Genoa City’s biggest psycho — well, next to Mary Jane and myself! As for Engen, The Suds Report can now reveal, that according to our sources, the reported reason the actor bolted was because he refused to film a scene in which Rafe and Adam have sex, which airs later next week. We didn't want to ruin the story, so we kept the plot twist under wraps by saying it was just a kiss. Yep, that's right — Adam sleeps with Rafe to keep him quiet. And it's not the last time they "do it."
