Matt Lauer was just spotted for the first time since his sexual harassment scandal – in the Hamptons! The sleazy former NBC anchor was seen strolling near his wife Annette Roque’s home, one day after RadarOnline.com caught him escaping his NYC apartment. He was even wearing his wedding ring! Click through to see the shocking photos.
Matt Lauer may be trying to hide out amid his sexual harassment scandal, but the former TODAY show host was just photographed exchanging papers with a mystery man in East Hampton!
The man appeared to be a lawyer and was seen sternly talking to Lauer on the side of the road.
The two got out of their cars and exchanged documents before driving away separately.
As Radar readers know, Lauer, 59, filed a public apology this Thursday morning saying that he was deeply “embarrassed and ashamed,” of his sick actions towards his female colleagues. He claimed that while some of the things said about him were lies or exaggerations, “there is enough truth in these stories” to make him realize the severity of his inappropriate actions.
NBC fired Lauer after receiving various complaints about his sexual acts from female employees. Co-anchors Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb voiced their sadness over the matter, saying they were shocked and “heartbroken.”
His statement came after a woman gave troubling details of a sexual encounter she had with Lauer in his office. She said he forced her to have sex with him on a chair, locked the door and left her passed out on the floor, alone. She allegedly woke up with her pants off and had to seek help from Lauer’s assistant, who took her to the nurse.
Two women also said he had exposed himself in front of them, with one adding that he became angry and “reprimanded” her when she refused to engage in sexual intercourse.
Various NBC employees supported the women who came forward to accuse Lauer, claiming they had complained about his inappropriate behavior before, but no actions had been taken.
Ever since his sex scandal came to light, Matt Lauer has been spending time with his family in his wife’s Hampton’s house. While Roque retracted her divorce documents after their 2004 feud, the two have been leading separate lives for years, and who knows how Lauer’s latest drama will impact their relationship!
As is clear in recent photos, however, the ex-anchor is still wearing his 20-year-old wedding band! How do you think Lauer’s family is dealing with his recent harassment drama? Sound off in the comments below.
