Did Katie Couric find out about Matt Lauer's alleged horrific behavior in the weeks before the sexual assault scandal exploded?

The former 'Today' cohosts shared dinner at Elio's restaurant in New York City on November 8, RadarOnline.com can exclusively report.

"They were having an intense conversation," an onlooker said of the reunion.

Couric accused her colleague of inappropriate actions in the past. On a 2012 episode of Watch What Happens Live, the 60-year-old news vet — who cohosted the show from 1991 to 2006 — accused Lauer, 59, of "pinching" her "on the a**" a lot during their time working together.

The two were once labeled TV news' golden couple, yet Lauer insisted they were nothing more than friends.

Lauer was fired this morning for what NBC execs called "sexually inappropriate behavior." Page Six claimed the firing was linked to an alleged sexual assault during the Sochi Olympics in 2014.
