Don Lemon has been driving away his fiancé — New York real estate agent Tim Malone — and throwing the wedding in doubt with his testy tantrums and vicious outbursts in the wake of his firing from CNN, RadarOnline.com has learned.
“Don’s so out of control right now, he’s about to kill his engagement after losing his job,” said a friend. “He’ll be left with nothing.”
Lemon toiled 17 years for the network before they unceremoniously dumped him last month over his sexist on-air comments. He later said he “regretted” his remarks, but by then the chucklehead had dug his own grave.
Tim, 39, reportedly tried to soothe the worked-up journo, “but Don wasn’t listening, and Tim’s fed up!” said a friend. The couple met in 2015 at a gay mixer and got engaged in April 2019, with Tim proposing by having their beloved pooches, Barkley and Boomer, wear dog tags engraved: “Daddy, will you marry papa?”
“After 17 years at CNN I would have thought that someone in management would have had the decency to tell me directly. At no time was I ever given any indication that I would not be able to continue to do the work I have loved at the network. It is clear that there are some larger issues at play,” he added.
