Kyle Jenkins Abbott
Played By Hartley Sawyer
Written By Darlene
on April 11, 2013
Kyle Jenkins Abbott is the son of Jack Abbott and Diane Jenkins. It was
originally thought that Kyle was the son of Victor Newman, because Diane
stole Victor's sperm in order to get pregnant. What she didn't know was
that the sperm had been switched with Jack's. When the truth came to light,
Diane tried to win Jack over but was unsuccessful, so she took Kyle and
moved out of state. Years later, they moved back to Genoa City. Diane made
many enemies and was murdered. The murderer turned out to be longtime
rival, Nikki Newman.
After some time, Jack reconciled with Nikki, a woman with whom he had a long
history. Kyle had trouble accepting this since she was his mother's killer.
However, he was grateful to her for being Jack's rock while he rehabilitated
from injuries sustained from a gun shot wound courtesy of his first wife, Patty
Williams. Kyle finally decided to accept the relationship just in time to see
it dissolved when Nikki returned to her true love, Victor Newman.
Kyle started a relationship with Eden Baldwin, but it seemed to go nowhere
and ended with no fanfare or even discussion. His focus seems to be on his
career and maintaining a good relationship with his father. The barely legal
Summer Newman has different ideas, though. She will do just about anything to
get Kyle's attention, despite warnings from just about everyone, including Kyle.
Kyle is a stand-up guy and seems to really want the best for everyone, but it
remains to be seen if he stays strong enough to rise above the decades old
rivalry between the Abbotts and the Newmans. A union between Kyle and Summer
could prove to be disastrous, or even incestuous, since Nick Newman was the only
person to hear the DNA results that proved who Summer's real father is, Nick or
Jack Abbott. Summer could very well have a serious crush on her big brother.
