CNN anchor Don Lemon and his longtime partner Tim Malone are getting married, according to multiple "friends" on social media. Twitter has been buzzing about the two longtime partners jumping the broom for the past couple of days.

News first broke about a possible wedding in the comments on Tim's Instagram page, MTO News learned. Tim was able to delete the comments - which were "congratulating" him and Don for getting engaged, but not before some in the media spotted them.

Don and Tim met in the summer of 2017, and have been inseparable ever since. The two went public last New Years, when Don kissed him live on the air during CNN's New Years show, saying “I love you, baby!”

Tim works as a sales director at Jukin Media and previously worked at Billboard as the executive director of brand partnerships. The men currently live together.

Congrats to Don and Tim.


Lemon joined CNN in September 2006. He has been outspoken in his work at CNN, criticizing the state of cable news and questioning the network publicly.[5] He has also voiced strong opinions on ways that the African-American community can improve themselves, which has caused some controversy. Since 2014, he has hosted CNN's New Year's Eve special from New Orleans.

In a much-reported broadcast in January 2018, Lemon introduced his broadcast with, “This is CNN Tonight, I’m Don Lemon. The President of the United States is racist.”
