He currently lives in his $4.3 million Sag Harbor mansion with his fiance Tim Malone after they outgrew their former place and decided to move into a bigger space.
Let's take a look inside the 4-bedroom mansion Lemon shares with Malone and their adorable dogs, as well as his luxurious lifestyle.

LEMON AND MALONE
The couple who met in New York in 2015 began dating in the summer of 2016, became Instagram official in April 2017, and got engaged in April 2019.
During the 2018 New Year's Eve celebration, the couple shared a kiss on a live broadcast, shared as they rang in 2018 at the Spotted Cat in New Orleans.
Ever since they went public with their relationship, the couple who live happily together constantly show off each other as they share updates with their followers. Malone also shares updates about life at home with their dogs — Barkley, Boomer, and Gus Gus.
After their engagement, the couple decided to put their marriage on hold until after the pandemic because they believe more important things are happening globally.
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. Being the smaller of his two spaces, he had configured the space as an open-concept layout with two bedrooms.
His 2,750 square-foot four-bedroom Sag Harbor house is considered his sanctuary. The decor and furnishings do not focus on any particular style or point of view, but it is an eclectic mix that keeps the atmosphere livable and relaxing.
He wanted a home and has created one that is warm, comfortable, and masculine. He believes that buying the house is one of the smartest things he has ever done as the house brings him joy and has 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 were suffering.
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. This is a claim categorically denied by Lemon.
A CNN spokesperson had said that the plaintiff had previously displayed a pattern of contempt and had unsuccessfully threatened and demanded exorbitant sums from Lemon.
