The man who is accusing CNN anchor Don Lemon of sexual assault and battery is claiming that the journalist has tried to pay him off to end his lawsuit.
Dustin Hice went on SiriusXM’s The Megyn Kelly Show and said that Lemon has tried to pay him $500,000 three times since the 2018 incident. Hice says the TV host “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 under [Hice’s] nose.”
Lemon has called the suit “frivolous”, and Hice says he won’t take the hush money, saying silence can’t be bought.
“Anybody that acts like that in public without any fear of what it might do to somebody or the consequences it might have, that’s a pattern,” Hice told host Megyn Kelly after she asked if it seemed that was something he had done before.
“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 CNN's Don Lemon over an alleged assault of a sexual nature, exclusively details the incident.
