In an unexpected turn of events, sources close to the couple have confirmed that Don Lemon’s husband, Tim Malone, has filed for divorce following Lemon’s abrupt firing from CNN last week. The shocking development has left both the media world and fans of the couple in a state of bewilderment.
Tim Malone, a successful real estate agent, has cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the divorce, claiming that the sudden change in Lemon’s employment status has led to an unbearable incompatibility between the two.
This unforeseen news has prompted many to question whether the couple’s vows of “for better or for worse” were actually more akin to “for better or for employed.”
Sources close to the couple have revealed that since Lemon’s firing, the household dynamic has shifted significantly. Lemon has reportedly been spending an excessive amount of time at home, binge-watching TV shows, and providing unsolicited commentary on the news, much to the dismay of his soon-to-be ex-husband.
“Tim’s life has turned into a never-ending episode of ‘Don Lemon Tonight’, minus the paycheck,” said an anonymous source. “He just couldn’t take it anymore.”
In an attempt to salvage their marriage, Malone had reportedly suggested that Lemon explore new career options, such as starting a podcast, teaching journalism, or even becoming a life coach.
However, Lemon is said to have declined these suggestions, claiming that he is “too overqualified” for such pursuits.
The impending divorce has also led to a bitter battle over the couple’s assets, including their lavish Hamptons home, their extensive collection of designer suits, and their prized French Bulldog, Boomer.
The couple’s friends are reportedly divided on who should retain custody of the dog, with some suggesting that Boomer may be better off with a more stable, employed guardian.
In the meantime, Don Lemon has launched a GoFundMe campaign to support his transition into the world of unemployed journalism.
The campaign, titled “Help Don Turn Lemons into Lemonade,” has so far raised a grand total of $7.53, with the highest donation coming from a user named “FiredAnchorFan42.”
As the media frenzy surrounding the couple’s separation continues to unfold, one thing is for certain: Lemon and Malone’s marriage has taken an unexpected turn that not even the most skilled anchorman could have predicted.
