Tensions on the set of “CNN This Morning” have recently boiled over, with Don Lemon allegedly “screaming” at co-host Kaitlan Collins off-camera during an ugly December incident that has left the cast and crew rattled ever since, The Post has learned.

According to two sources with knowledge of the situation, the 56-year-old Lemon approached 30-year-old Collins following the show’s Thursday Dec. 8 broadcast — and unloaded on her in front of staffers as he accused her of “interrupting” him on air.

News of the explosive incident made its way up to CNN CEO Chris Licht, who is said to have been appalled by Lemon’s behavior, according to a source. A second source said a producer talked to Lemon at the behest of Licht and told the anchor to take the next day off to “cool off.”

“Don screamed at Kaitlan, who was visibly upset and ran out of the studio,” one source said in describing the incident.

Lemon did not appear on the Dec. 9 broadcast. Co-host Poppy Harlow told viewers, “Don has the day off.”

Fox News Digital asked CNN about The New York Post report on the incident. A CNN spokesperson said the incident had been “wildly overblown.”

“Don, Kaitlan and Poppy were friends before they were co-anchors, and they remain friends today,” the CNN spokesperson said.

  1. CNN is a joke and these people aren’t journalists! They’re hacks! As far as they getting their feelings hurt over someone being rude, they didn’t give two shits about being rude or obnoxious when she would ask Trump questions! Don Lemon is a d-ck!
