With all of the chaos that his sexual harassment scandal has managed to bring upon his family, we have learned that Matt Lauer and his wife Annette Roque are focusing on ensuring their children still have a ‘stable’ home. Here’s what the estranged couple is doing to make sure the young ones are not too affected by it all!
The pair is most likely to have a divorce following the former Today host’s disgraceful firing but not yet!
‘Matt and Annette have been leading separate lives for a number of years now, and while Matt was working at NBC, he’d spend all the week in Manhattan, while Annette would be at home in the Hamptons with the kids. If it were not for the kids, who they both love more than anything, they’d have likely divorced years ago,’ one insider close to the family revealed.
They went on to state that Matt’s shocking scandal has affected him very much: ‘Some days he feels like he is just reeling, and losing control of everything he loves and cares about. He is embarrassed and feels like he is in some kind of horror movie. The kids are the one good constant he has left in his life right now, and there is no way Annette would consider pulling that away from him when he needs it most.’
That being said, Annette and Matt have resorted to living together and are putting all of their energy into taking care of their kids and protecting them from the media’s prying eyes.
But of course, the two are not back together as they still sleep in different rooms.
As you may already be aware, his infidelity and sexual harassment were, in fact, an ‘open secret’ for a long time at NBC.
