Y&R: Adam vs Nick – Personal and Professional Rivalry

Young and the Restless spoilers say that Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) and Adam Newman never saw eye to eye as brothers. Nick is the father Christian Newman (Jude & Ozzy McGuigan) knew most of his life. When Christian was a baby, Adam switched the paternity results so Nick believed he was Christian’s father. Thanks to his brother, Nick believed he was Christian’s father. Now, Nick knows the truth but is determined not to let Adam Newman play a role in his life.

It doesn’t help that Nick thinks Adam is going to win back Chelsea Newman (Melissa Claire Egan). Plus, Adam Newman has his hands on Nick’s company Dark Horse and put Nick’s despised ex Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stanford) in charge of it. Now, there’s a custody battle brewing. But is the younger brother in the wrong in this battle with Nick Newman – or are both men somewhat to blame?

Young and the Restless: Sibling Rivalry – Victoria Turns on Adam Newman Too

Y&R shows Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) always felt her brother Adam Newman was a threat. She just wants to run Newman Enterprises and have a happy family. Victor Newman always put his youngest son ahead of the other kids at NE, it seems to her. That’s why she was eager to get Adam out of town and gave him $50 million and Chelsea‘s telephone number. Instead of leaving town, he used the money to gain control of Dark Horse.

So now, Victoria‘s scrambling to make things up to Nick. Because Adam used that money to wreck her other brother’s life. Adam told her repeatedly he didn’t want the CEO seat. She didn’t believe him. In fact, he turned it down and suggested Victor put Vikki in the top position. So, Adam Newman was incredulous at the lengths his sister’s going to but she won’t stop. But should she back off and see that he isn’t trying to hurt her on Young and the Restless?

Is Adam Newman Misunderstood on Y&R?

Young and the Restless spoilers recall that Adam Newman didn’t want to come back. He was living life in Vegas, minding his own business and at peace. Now, he’s got his memories back, realized he killed a child, her mom wants to murder him, and his family hates him. He’s got two sons he’s not allowed to see and his wife married another man. Victor abandoned him and his siblings hate him. Life kind of stinks right now for Adam Newman.

The two that dragged him back to town – Victor and Sharon – ditched him and now he’s pretty much alone. So, if he’s lashing out, to some extent, to try and get back some of the life he lost, isn’t that understandable? His dad and siblings want nothing to do with him. The only alliance he has is with sketchy Phyllis. Even his friend Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) doesn’t approve of his actions.
