As per a Wednesday report by Variety, it appears that Don Lemon had a public romantic relationship with a junior CNN employee who is almost two decades his junior.
Variety's in-depth report on Don Lemon's conduct at CNN included the disclosure that he had a romantic relationship with a junior employee. The report also alleged that Lemon made derogatory comments about a producer's weight to her face and sent an anonymous threatening message to a colleague back in 2008.
Lemon is also said to have openly dated a “fresh-out-of-college” staffer despite their “major age difference and power imbalance,” Variety reported. Lemon was 41-years-old at the time of the romantic entanglement, and the staffer was 22, according to the report.

“As fast as you could make a rule, Don would bend it,” a Variety senior executive said.
Variety's report stated that Lemon had not yet publicly come out as gay during the time of his romantic relationship with the junior CNN staffer, but he wasn't necessarily keeping it a secret either. Lemon allegedly drove the staffer to work on a daily basis, and they were involved in a long-term relationship. However, the relationship was apparently viewed unfavorably by others at the time.
Apart from his romantic affairs, the Variety report detailed Don Lemon's notoriety for displaying diva-like behavior and being misogynistic during his tenure at CNN. According to the report, Lemon's reputation began to develop soon after he was hired by the network in 2006. He was described as a "shameless name-dropper."
CNN has reportedly initiated formal training for Don Lemon to address his problematic behavior, as it remains uncertain whether his career can endure the current wave of criticism.
