The man revealed that as a child he had been abused by an older person.

Lemon said: “I have never admitted this on television. I am a victim of a pedophile when I was a kid. Someone who was much older than me.”

The news man, 44, continued discussion surrounding the sex scandal towards Bishop Eddie Long and added: “I have never admitted that on television. I didn’t tell my mom that until I was 30 years old.”

As a result to his statement, he wanted to thank his Twitter followers for supporting him: “I had no idea I’d say that on national TV. It just came out. Sadly, it’s the truth for so many young men.”
