Kaitlan Collins is dumping an agent she shared with CNN This Morning co-host Don Lemon
Kaitlan Collins has dumped the “super agent” she shared with her “CNN This Morning” co-host Don Lemon just weeks after they reportedly got into a screaming match off-camera.
The journalist recently split from United Talent Agency’s Jay Sures amid ongoing drama between her and Lemon, which first surfaced in February.
In a statement to the media, Sures confirmed the split, saying, “We wish her well in her future endeavors.”
During an incident in December, Lemon, 57, is said to have yelled at Collins, 30, after he accused her of interrupting him several times during the show.
Collins ran off the set in tears from the TV crew and her co-host Poppy Harlow, sources said at the time.

The journalist recently split from United Talent Agency’s Jay Sures amid ongoing drama between her and Lemon, which first surfaced in February
In a statement, Sures confirmed the split: “We wish her well in her future endeavors.”
According to The Post, Collins’ relationship with Lemon – Sures’ “star client” – led to their final split.
“Jay practically didn’t repeat them,” a source said.
The person who spoke to the outlet said the Dec. 8 incident, in which Lemon yelled at his co-star off-camera, was the beginning of the end.
It’s unclear when Sures and Collins officially split.
However, the source said Collins has since moved to Ari Emanuel’s agency, William Morris Endeavor (WME).
DailyMail.com contacted Collins via WME but received no response at the time of publication.
It seems Lemon, who has found himself in a slew of controversies over the past few weeks, is sticking to Sures.
Most recently, Lemon was reportedly forced into “formal training” after “past her prime” over GOP 2024 hopeful Nikki Haley, who is 51.
He had already commented on the 51-year-old candidate in February.
The anchor was placed on a three-day suspension for his remarks.
Upon his return, Lemon tweeted just before he went on air on February 22: “I appreciate the opportunity to be back on CNN This Morning today.
“To my network, my colleagues and our incredible audience – I’m sorry. I’ve listened to you, I’m learning from you, and I’m striving to do better. See you soon.’
During an episode last week, the co-host used his platform to make a dramatic turn and strongly advocate voters electing 2024’s first female president.
“There are so many places around the world where there have been women leaders running the country… but not in the largest democracy in the world?” he asked.
Insiders claim Lemon is aware he’s on his “final warning” after a string of offensive blunders on the morning show.

Since its launch in November, CNN This Morning has continued to see low viewership.
Just recently, the show averaged just 360,000 viewers. In the 25-54 age group, the show only had 73,000 viewers.
For comparison, “Fox & Friends,” which airs at 6 a.m., had a total viewership of more than 1.2 million.
MNSBC’s “Morning Joe” reached a combined audience of 895,000.
