Current and Past Occupation
Current: Executive at Jabot
Kyle is the son of Diane Jenkins and Jack Abbott. He got to know his father as a 10 year-old when he and Diane moved back to Genoa City from Canada. Kyle and Diane moved in with Victor for a time before she was killed in the park. At that point, Kyle moved in with Jack before going away to boarding school.
Kyle returned to Genoa City as a twenty-something, still harboring a grudge against Nikki Newman for killing Diane, even though it was ruled as self-defense. Kyle shunned his father for having a relationship with Nikki, and moved in with Victor at the ranch. Kyle began dating Eden Baldwin. After Victor married Sharon and then went missing, Kyle elected to move back in with Jack after a falling out with Sharon.
Kyle's romantic life with Eden fizzled after he began flirting with Phyllis in front of her. Kyle wound up working at Newman after Jack took it over, but ended up fired after confronting Jack about his pill addiction. Kyle was rehired at Jabot after Jack got clean, and Summer Newman began pursuing him romantically. Nick got wind of Summer wanting to have her first sexual experience with Kyle and it was revealed that Summer's paternity test from back in the day was inconclusive. When things began heating up with Summer and Kyle, Nick arranged for a paternity test to confirm whether he or Jack was Summer's father, and Phyllis ran interference, kissing Kyle and causing him to dump Summer. Kyle later regretted hurting Summer and asked for another chance, but by this time the results of the paternity test had been revealed to Summer and she was forced to tell Kyle that since Jack was her biological father they were siblings. Kyle had a hard time dealing with this news and found himself caught up in work. He became involved in Jack and Jill's plot against Victor, and managed to get himself hired at Newman Enterprises so he could be a mole. This was despite Jack asking him not to as he didn't want to use his son the way Victor used his children. Victor pitted Kyle against Noah at the company, where he remained until Noah caught him photographing files in Victor's office. Not long afterward, Kyle left Genoa City for New York on Jabot business.
