Don Lemon Gets Candid About His Relationship With Chris Cuomo Amid Controversy

CNN’s Don Lemon is speaking out following the mounting sexual harassment and inappropriate misconduct allegations against longtime pal Chris Cuomo’s big brother, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Despite his friendship with his fellow journalist, he isn’t afraid to touch on the tough topic. “I don’t feel weird talking about it, what I feel weird [about] is the pressure and all of the focus that’s on my friend because my friend is not the governor, my friend is the governor’s brother,” the reporter said while promoting his book This is the Fire, on the March 23, 2021, episode of the Wendy Williams Show.

“My heart goes out to him and the entire family because I love Chris, I love his wife and his kids. I’ve only met the governor once, maybe twice so I’ve never really spent much time with him and usually it’s at some sort of picnic or family function, but just a bit briefly,” he explained. “But I know and I love Chris, so is it hard for me to talk about? No, because I am a journalist and Chris has been in this business as long as I have, so he knows we have to do it. And is it uncomfortable for him? I’m sure. But for me, no it’s not.”
