The CNN This Morning host reportedly sent Kaitlan Collins running off set in tears on Dec. 8 after berating her in front of the television crew and their other co-host.

He was told by boss Chris Licht to take a day off to “cool off,” but instead blew up at staffers after a company newsletter ran a story about his altercation with the White House correspondent.

The couple fled New York for Los Angeles, appearing to be enjoying the Golden State sunshine and ignoring the drama going on at home.

Real estate agent Moloney posted the series of snaps, which included a photo of the popular “Bienvenidos Amigos” writing on the pillars at the monument’s entrance, hotel parking lot, and palm trees.

Collins, 30, the youngest White House correspondent on CNN, reportedly wants to be on set with the anchor “as little as possible” after the incident.

The altercation took place off-camera on December 8, leaving Collins “visibly upset” and other staff members “appalled” by his outburst.

Both Collins and Lemon are both represented by Agent Jay Sures, while their fellow anchor Poppy Harlow witnesses the first heated argument.

Collins and Lemon have been starring side by side on the show since its inception three months ago.

The pair, along with Harlow, used to show up to red carpets and events as a unit, but now appear to be arriving separately and seem to want to stay far away from each other.

While it’s unclear if Collins interrupted Lemon on purpose, a source called him “bossy” and “difficult to work with.”

The source added that he was given notes to talk less during the show and share the stage with Harlow and Collins.

Lemon used to have his own show, Don Lemon Tonight, before Licht canceled it and created the new morning show.

CNN boss Licht previously promised to give the company a makeover since his acquisition last year, but seems to have had little impact.

The company has not commented on the allegations, but Licht approved shocking layoffs last year, shocking many employees.

He moved Lemon from his primetime show to the morning show as anchor, in a realignment of broadcasters’ talent.

It comes after podcast host Megyn Kelly predicted that the incident with Collins wasn’t the first time Lemon had lost his temper with a colleague, adding that she suspected it wouldn’t be his last either.

She added that he “better be careful,” adding that she would’ve had him fired if he pulled that on her — also noting that the show is on “its last legs before it’s even on its first legs came’.
