Lauer, 61, was all alone at the West Palm Beach airport on Thursday, January 3, 2019 when an eyewitness spotted him. “He was wearing a sweater in the Florida heat, looked very thin and definitely didn’t look like himself. Super gaunt,” the eagle-eyed observer told Radar.

A source told Radar that his parents lived in Palm Beach Gardens and he vacationed there frequently. “His father passed away in Hospice care — Matt did an annual charity golf event to benefit Hospice. Trustbridge, which operates Hospice of Palm Beach County, pulled its commercials with Matt after the sex scandal exploded,” an insider explained to Radar.

“He kept to himself and surprisingly no one noticed him. It looked like he didn’t really want to be noticed, wearing glasses and a baseball hat,” the eyewitness told Radar. “He had his golf clubs with him and his luggage that he carried by himself."

Lauer, who had an NBC car shuttle him to and from work on a daily basis, was slumming it with regular folks. “He had no VIP treatment and was waiting like a commoner just like everyone else,” the spy told Radar.
