(PresidentialInsider.com)- Controversial CNN anchor Don Lemon has reason to celebrate this month after allegations made against him in 2019 fell flat in court.
Plaintiff Dustin Hice claimed in a lawsuit that he was assaulted by Lemon at a bar in the Hamptons in the summer of 2018, but the case fell apart and the judge ordered Hice to pay Lemon more than $77,000 in attorney’s fees. Not only that, but two key witnesses who Hice believed would support his version of events actually switched sides and joined the defense.
If you missed the story, here’s what Hice claimed:
He said that on July 15, 2018, far-left news personality Don Lemon was in a bar where Hice was working as a bartender. As he and his boss, George Hounelas, decided to close up the bar a little earlier than normal, they recognized Don Lemon. Upon approaching the CNN star, he offered him a “lemon drop” cocktail, which Lemon rejected.
Hice then claimed that Lemon, who was wearing shorts at the time, approached Hice, put his hand down the front of his shorts, rubbed his genitals, and then took his hand out of his shorts and put his finger underneath Hice’s nose.
Yes, it’s gross.
Lemon that reportedly asked Hice, “Do you like pussy or dick?”
Lemon obviously denied the accusations, and after the suit was first filed said that Hice had made unsuccessful threats and even tried to extort money out of him, asking for $1.5 million to make the case go away.
Text messages obtained during the discovery process of the suit also appeared to reveal how Hice trespassed onto Lemon’s property and took photographs of himself “holding a lemon in front of his own genital area.”
This sounds like a…crazy person.
Mediaite offers a full breakdown of the case, but put simply, the case has fallen apart. What Hice said happened…didn’t happen.
