Don Lemon has reached a separation deal with CNN for $24.5 million after leaving the network.

Lemon’s departure followed controversial comments about Nikki Haley and a shift from primetime to morning programming.

“It is clear that there are some larger issues at play,” Lemon wrote online.

Lemon criticized CNN’s direction and management, leading to his dismissal.

“I would have thought that someone in management would have had the decency to tell me directly,” he said.

“CNN, the strategy and their content and the direction they wanted to go in, I was not a part of that,” Lemon later said.

“They did not want me to be a part of that, and I think that has, from what has played out publicly as it relates to CNN, as it relates to management, and what they’re doing now, I think that it’s obvious that they didn’t want me to be a part of that.”

He is now set to launch a new show called “The Don Lemon Show” on Elon Musk’s X platform.
