Annette Roque apparently has one foot out the door and is getting ready to file for divorce from husband, Matt Lauer.
It was previously revealed that Roque was devastated by the news that Lauer was fired from his gig on TODAY after a dozen of women complained that he sexually harassed or even raped them.
This week, a series of pictures have surfaced showing Lauer’s wife running errands in New York without her wedding ring.
A family friend has come out to say the former European model, who shares three children — Jack Matthew, 16; Romy, 14; and Thijs, 11 — with Mr. Lauer, is not thinking if will she file for divorce but when.
The person with knowledge of the story explained, “it is basically over between the two, so much pain has happened and turning back now for any reconciliation is not an option. Annette removed her wedding ring because she wholeheartedly believes Matt does not deserve her wearing it.”
The source went on to say that the “marriage is over and it is just the time and paperwork” and will soon be completed to get over with.
“Its a hard time for Annette but she is going at it at her own pace, it is still very present with her and heartbreaking, but she will figure out divorce proceedings within the next few weeks or months,” the insider revealed.
According to a popular publication, in early 2018, “things will start happening.”
It appears that Lauer “is very much aware the trouble he is in with his wife and anticipates separation and divorce.”
However, he plans to fight to keep his family together and has plans to use the holidays to make a miracle happen.
The same source went to say, “it is still so fresh in everyone’s mind that Matt is hoping no one makes any rash moves suddenly, including himself and instead actually thinks through it all to make sure everything has been thought out properly and rationally.”
“It is a mess, but he is looking forward to starting the process of being an adult in the way he treats everything that is important in his life. He is aware that it might be too late but is looking to make things better before they get any worse. Moving forward, whatever is bound to come up with his marriage, he is hoping it goes much more maturely than what he has currently made things to be…” claimed another pal of the Lauer/Roque clan.
