Fox News released a report on Tuesday claiming, sexual assault allegations against CNN host Don Lemon are expected to be heard in court early next year.
This comes after some accusations of sexual harassment recently came into light against Lemon’s close friend and fellow CNN host, Chris Cuomo.
“The attorney for the man who accused fellow CNN host Don Lemon of a sexually charged assault expects the case to finally end up in court early next year after a prolonged legal process,” said FNC reporter Brian Flood.
It’s been almost two years since this lawsuit was filed in August 2019 “accusing the ‘CNN Tonight’ host of assault and battery at a bar”
The details in the lawsuit include some graphic content that exposed Lemon’s reality that took place during CNN’s New Year party:
“[Lemon] put his hand down the front of his own shorts, and vigorously rubbed his genitalia, removed his hand and shoved his index and middle fingers into Plaintiff’s mustache and under Plaintiff’s nose,” details this lawsuit that was filed on Aug. 11, 2019, in Suffolk County Court.
“Lemon intensely pushed his fingers against Plaintiff’s face under Plaintiff’s nose, forcing Plaintiff’s head thrust backward as Defendant repeatedly asked Plaintiff ‘Do you like p—y or d–k?’ While saying this, Mr. Lemon continued to shove his fingers into Plaintiff’s face with aggression and hostility,” the suit alleged.
“The alleged incident occurred at Murf’s Backstreet Tavern, in the prestigious Sag Harbor town of the Hamptons area east of New York City in July 2018,” Flood noted. And we know that Lemon lives in that area because his swanky home appeared in Hamptons magazine.“
Last week, another accusation against Don Lemon’s friend Chris Cuomo was made public in the pages of The New York Times where the victim accused Cuomo of sexually harassing her in front of her husband and even sending her an “apology” email soon thereafter
Chris Cuomo, like his brother and former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, has been previously accused of sexual harassment as well.
