Matt lauer affair

Matt Lauer may have been ousted from the Today show after he was sacked from NBC for inappropriate sexual behavior, but the journalist will still appear on movie screens, as Lauer has cameos in two new releases - Lady Bird and I, Tonya.

Lauer and Roque married in 1998 and she filed for divorce in 2006, accusing the disgraced journalist of "cruel and inhumane" behavior before withdrawing her petition one month later after reaching a private agreement. "He plans to disappear and play golf", a source told the New York Post.

Lauer was sacked last week amid multiple accusations of inappropriate behavior.

"Sunday Today" host Willie Geist and "Today" anchors Megyn Kelly and Hoda Kotb have also been rumored to be in the running. Since being fired, reports in Variety and The New York Times have accused Lauer of shocking behavior, including using a button concealed underneath his desk to lock his door and repeatedly quizzing female producers about their sex lives.

Roque, who is Lauer's second wife, has not given any statements regarding the accusations against her husband, however her father is reportedly stating that she will be divorcing Lauer soon. To the people I have hurt, I am truly sorry. Roque has been spotted around Sag Harbor, where the couple reside, without her wedding ring on, but numerous sources say the couple is still living together.

"The reason people are so upset and people are crying on our staff, which is like 80 percent women, is because he was really loved and treated people really well", the staffer said.

"I have no words for her husband", Henri said. "As I am writing this I realize the depth of the damage and disappointment I have left behind at home and at NBC", he said. They now reside in CT and have a son born in 2014. Everybody feels betrayed. She is not going to stay with him and work it out.

"Some of what is being said about me is untrue or mischaracterized, but there is enough truth in these stories to make me feel embarrassed and ashamed", he added. "I thank them for their patience and grace".
