Former cable news hosts Tucker Carlson and Don Lemon have both hired the services of a prominent attorney to assist them in navigating their departures from their respective networks. The two anchors were recently let go from their positions, with Carlson being Fox’s top-rated prime time host and Lemon hosting a morning show on CNN.
The news of their joint legal representation under attorney Bryan Freedman suggests that both Carlson and Lemon may be gearing up for potential legal battles with their former employers. The move has sparked interest in what may come next for the popular TV personalities.
Freedman is an American attorney and entertainment litigator who has represented numerous high-profile clients in the entertainment industry, including actors, directors, producers, and production companies. He is known for his aggressive and tenacious approach to litigation, and has been involved in a number of high-profile cases, including representing actor Armie Hammer in a recent sexual assault lawsuit.
Other clients include: Gabrielle Union, Terry Crews, Ellen DeGeneres, and Gretchen Carlson.
Freedman has also been involved in a number of cases related to defamation, privacy, and other issues that are common in the entertainment industry. He has been recognized for his work by a number of legal and industry organizations, and has been featured in a variety of publications, including The Hollywood Reporter, Variety, and The New York Times.
In addition to his legal work, Freedman has also been involved in producing and developing a number of film and television projects.
It is not uncommon for individuals to seek legal counsel after being let go from their jobs, particularly in high-profile cases involving high-stakes contracts and public scrutiny. In this case, the fact that both Carlson and Lemon have hired the same high-powered lawyer suggests that they may be considering legal action against their former employers.
