‘Young And The Restless’ Fact Check: Cane Ashby’s 5 Worst Lies Over The Years

The Young and the Restless spoilers say Cane Ashby [Daniel Goddard] doesn’t have a leg to stand on when it comes to Lily Ashby [Christel Khalil] divorcing him over his latest lies. But is this really the worst thing the devious Aussie has ever done? To be honest, Cane’s never been a knight in shining armor or a particularly trustworthy guy. He’s tall, he’s handsome, but he’s trouble that looks good in a suit and Lily has known it for years. Here’s a look at the five worst lies Cane has told since he rolled into Genoa City a decade ago.

1 – Lying about sex with another woman – Chloe

Nope, we’re not talking about the lie about Juliet Helton [Laur Allen], but a very similar lie. Cane has the worst luck with women getting him drunk and telling him they had sex. Chloe Mitchell [Elizabeth Hendrickson] liquored up Cane after she found out she was knocked up and told him they hooked up. She announced the news just in time to ruin his marriage proposal to Lily.

Just like he’s done with Juliet, Cane moved Chloe in with him and married her so the child would be legitimate, not knowing Chloe had lied and tricked him. Eventually, Chloe’s lie was exposed and Billy Abbott [Jason Thompson], Cane’s half-brother, found out he was the father of Chloe’s kid, who was named Delia Abbott. The truth freed up Cane to reunite with Lily.

2 – Cane lied about who he was

There was also the big fat lie about Cane’s identity. He was initially believed to be Jill Abbott’s [Jess Walton] long-lost son Phillip Chancellor III. After Lily and Cane reunited once Chloe told the truth about Billy being her baby daddy, this ugly lie was revealed and Cane admitted to being a no-good Australian cattle rustler. Lily dumped him again upon this revelation but they later reconciled.

3 – Cane faked his death and let Lily mourn him

Cane gaslighted his wife Lily after faking his death. Cane was scheming with his mom Genevieve Atkinson after his twin brother Caleb Atkinson [also Daniel Goddard] died. Cane and Genevieve were trying to trick Colin Atkinson [Tristan Rogers] who was plotting to kidnap Cane’s kids, Mattie and Charlie Ashby, after he thought Cane died. Lily is still holding a grudge about that lie.


4 – Lying about sex with another woman – Juliet

Of Cane’s more recent shenanigans, the one that’s sticking in Lily’s craw right now is his lie about getting drunk and sleeping with Juliet. That must remind her of the lie he told about Chloe a long time ago. Cane kept lying even when the lie tore apart Brash & Sassy and forced Victoria Newman [Amelia Heinle] to write Juliet a check to settle the sexual harassment lawsuit.

5 – Setting up Billy and ruining the hockey deal

Even when Cane knew him sleeping with Juliet was lurking, he didn’t stop his scheming. Cane plotted to humiliate half-brother Billy Abbott [Jason Thompson] by creatively editing footage of a backstage hockey event to make it look like reformed habitual gambler Billy was back at it. Not only that, but he drained his kids’ college account to pay blackmail to the editor.

What do you think? Is Cane’s latest lie more unforgivable than any of this other scams and fibs? Comment below and look to Soap Dirt for more Young and the Restless spoilers and interesting tidbits.
