Why Chelsea will reveal Christian’s paternity

Y&R spoilers make it clear that Chelsea Lawson is never happy except when she’s working on a scheme, especially if there’s no man in her life to obsess over. His current bug-a-boo convinces Victoria Newman and Billy Abbott to tell Johnny Abbott that Chelsea is his biological mother.

Y&R Spoiler Speculation

Not for her, of course. For Johnny. And, of course, Precious Connor Newman (Judah Mackey). Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) can’t stand the thought of keeping a secret from Connor about her brother.

The other young and restless brother

But Johnny isn’t Connor’s only secret brother. Johnny and Connor share a biological mother, but Connor and Christian Newman share a biological father – Adam Newman (Mark Grossman). If Chelsea feels compelled to clear the air with Connor about Johnny, how long before she goes after Christian too?

Y&R Spoilers: Double Indemnity

Chelsea has more than one reason to go after Johnny – it’s obvious she’s after Billy (Jason Thompson) too. And she could well have more than one reason to want to enlighten Christian.

Telling Christian that he and Connor are brothers also means telling Christian that Adam, not Nicholas Newman (Joshua Morrow), is his biological father. And that’s good for Chelsea – twice as much.

Young and the Restless: Two Birds, One Stone

While Billy insists he’s madly in love with Lily Winters (Christel Khalil), Chelsea can bide her time by going after Adam again. When he first returned to Genoa City, Adam sued Nick for custody of Christian — with support from Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) (what a great dad!). He pulled out for Christian’s sake, but if Chelsea were to raise the issue again, well, he’s not to blame, is he?

And if that drives a bigger rift between Nick and Adam, which pushes Nick towards Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope) – and away from Adam, well, that’s a win for Chelsea, isn’t it? Do you think this speculation could happen? Let us know in the comments section below.
