Adam Sessler leaves G4

In a story first broken by Jason Schreier at Kotaku, Adam Sessler, the last remaining original host at G4 (when it was still ZDTV) has kicked rocks.

And word on the playground is it wasn't pretty.

A statement issued by Sessler's representative reads as follows:

"Television personality Adam Sessler and TV network G4 are parting ways, with Adam's last episode as host of G4's "X-Play" airing on the network today, Wednesday, April 25. Adam has been hosting the show since it first aired as ZDTV's "Gamespot TV" in July 1998 and he also served as Editor In Chief of games content at G4. His current projects include starring as himself in the Summer 2012 movie "noobz" and consulting with a film production company on theatrical feature adaptations of video games. Adam intends to stay in front of the camera and continue as a key voice within the games industry. He also sings and is available for weddings and bar mitzvahs."

According to Kotaku's sources, "Sessler is leaving due to a contractual dispute and the departure was not on amicable terms." and while a rep from G4 did confirm his departure, they did not state why.

If THAT weren't enough, Sessler's been removed from the roster of hosts on the network's Wiki and resignation updated on his personal Wiki

And finally, the man himself confirms it on his personal Twitter

Today will be Sessler's LAST episode of X-Play, so be sure to tune in and give the man the goodbye he deserves.  There's still GREAT hosts at G4 but it just won't be the same without this dude.

You WILL be missed, man.
