Don Lemon sends legal letter to Megyn Kelly

2021-11-11

The letter accused Kelly of allowing listeners to be fed a lopsided and inaccurate story about what occurred between Hice and Lemon.

CORRECTION:This story has been updated to correct a prior version that incorrectly stated that Ms. Polisi filed a legal complaint against Ms. Kelly.

Megyn Kellyhas been put on legal notice byDon Lemonafter the conservative talk show host invitedDustin Hice, a man who made sexual harassment accusations against Lemon, onto herSiriusXMradio show.

You permitted Mr. Hices statements to go unchallenged during your broadcast, clearly out of a vendetta you have against Mr. Lemon, read a letter from Lemons attorney,Caroline J. Polisi, obtained byRadar Online.

The letter also accused Kelly of allowing listeners to be fed a lopsided and inaccurate story about what occurred between Hice and Lemon.

Hice accused theCNNhost of sexually assaulting him in Sag Harbor during the summer of 2018. Hice filed a lawsuit a year later and said that he has suffered feelings of shame, humiliation, anxiety, anger, and guilt.

The incident occurred before Lemon announced his engagement to his partner,Tim Malone.

He has his hand in his pants rubbing himself aggressively, and he shoved his two fingers up underneath my mustache.

Dustin Hice, who is suing CNNs Don Lemon over an alleged assault of a sexual nature, exclusively details the incident.

According to the letter, Hice falsely stated that he was offered $500K to settle the battery lawsuit. Lemons lawyer said that they offered a nuisance amount of $8K and Hice demanded $1.5 million in exchange for not going public with the claim.

Lemons lawyer also accused Hice of bribing a witness and distorting what happened.

Mr. Lemon has presented evidence of Mr. Hice offering to bribe a witness and that he intentionally destroyed and withheld material evidence that both is directly relevant to his purported claims and that severely undermines his credibility, she wrote in the letter.

In the letter, the attorney asked Kelly to correct her reckless reporting and public statements.I hope you will correct your reckless reporting today, and the prior public statements you have made about this case statements that demonstrated a reckless disregard for the truth and absolutely no effort on your part to try to ascertain the facts.

CNN, the network with which Lemon has had a longstanding relationship, stood by the host and implied that Hice has contempt forCNNand has said as much on his now-deleted social media platforms.

This claim follows his unsuccessful threats and demands for an exorbitant amount of money from Don Lemon. Don categorically denies these claims and this matter does not merit any further comment at this time, read a statement fromCNNat the time of the initial letter.

The formerFox Newshost has not yet publicly responded to the letter from Lemons attorney.
