You know The Young and the Restless' backstage firing/sex scandal is crazy when Gloria Allred starts weighing in! In the Feb. 10 issue of CBS Soaps in Depth, the celebrity litigator had advice for both fired star Michael Muhney (ex-Adam) and the actress at the center of allegations Muhney groped and bullied her, Hunter King (Summer).
Said Allred on Muhney:
"I am not surprised that he is trying to do damage control," she admits to Soaps In Depth, "but I'd advise him to seek legal advice before making any other comments."
To date, Muhney has only spoken out about his firing to Huffington Post Canada—prior to the groping allegations coming out—and tweeted a quote from Benjamin Franklin. For King, Allred had similar advice:
"There are many legal minefields that she would need to be aware of," the attorney notes, "before deciding if she should say anything."
King has yet to comment on the allegations, or Muhney's exit from the 40-year-old serial. For more of SID's coverage on the Muhney/King scandal, pick up the Feb. 10 issue of of the magazine!
