LEMON’S HOME AND LIFESTYLE
In 2021, Lemon sold his New York Harlem three-bedroom condo years after he had purchased a quaint cottage in Sag Harbor. Because it was the smaller of his two spaces he had designed the space as an open-concept layout, with two bedrooms.
His 2,750 square-foot four-bedroom Sag Harbor house is considered his sanctuary. While the furnishings and decor do not reflect any particular style or point-of-view, it is a mix of eclectic styles that makes the home feel livable. He wanted a home, so he created one that’s warm, comfortable, and masculine. He believes buying the house was one of the best decisions he made. The house has brought him joy and changed his life.
He decided to live in Sag Harbor because he feels there is something spiritual about the place. He loves to hang around the village and even hosted friends to a festive barbecue in June 2021 for the annual Pride parade. With him being very vocal about his beliefs in his news segment, not many people are fans of his luxurious lifestyle. He has been accused several times of flaunting his wealth and lifestyle as many people suffer.
Some have questioned his decision to live in Sag Harbor, and they take to Twitter to express their opinions. One use once referred to him as “a VERY rich privileged elitist.” In 2019, he was sued by Dustin Hice for an unprovoked and offensive assault that allegedly occurred at Murf’s Backstreet Tavern in Sag Harbor in July 2018. Lemon strongly denied the claim. CNN spokesperson said that Lemon had denied the claim. Lemon had been threatened with violence and demanded exorbitant sums by the plaintiff.
