According to a Today show insider, the couple has been living apart for two months, and fed-up Annette is no longer wearing her wedding ring.

According to the Enquirer, Annette accused Lauer of cheating during the Today Show's on-site coverage of the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, British Colombia, which occurred between February 9th - 26th.

Suspicions were first sparked when Matt stood Annette up for Valentine's Day, choosing instead to stay in Vancouver, where a source says Matt was often spotted boozing and flirting with women - in particular two pretty Canadian broadcasters.

To add fuel to the fire Matt decided to stay behind in Canada after the Today Show crew returned to New York at the end of the Olympics.

Annette, reportedly was informed of her husband's flirting by the wife of another staffer, got the names of the two female broadcasters he was spotted getting especially cozy with, and confronted Lauer upon his return home.

Lauer denied all accusations, insisting the women were just friends, but after two non-stop days of fighting finally moved out into his own digs.

According to the show insider, "Matt is trying to keep this split on the down low." In addition, sources say that Lauer's NBC bosses are pressuring the presenter to maintain his image as a solid family man to appeal to his largely female audience.

The source goes on to say, "Matt is still very involved in his children's lives. He goes to the family apartment after he finishes his Today duties to see the kids - and picks them up from school.

"For their sake, he and Annette plan to continue getting together on weekends - and they'll go to their house in the Hamptons."
