Matt Lauer Reportedly Romancing 20-Something Blonde Amid $20 Million Divorce
Matt Lauer lost everything after his sexual harassment scandal, but at least his love life is still going strong. The disgraced TV host is reportedly dating a much younger woman now that his marriage with Annette Roque is over. Sources say that Lauer and the mystery blonde are getting serious, and Roque could not be happier about it.
“He’s sleeping with a young blonde in her 20’s in the Hamptons,” an insider dished. “It’s getting pretty serious.”
The insider revealed that Lauer is even planning a romantic getaway with his new girlfriend. The two are looking to fly to New Zealand this winter to avoid the cold weather. While Lauer’s love life is heating up, his estranged wife wants to move forward with their divorce and get out of his life for good.
In fact, a source told Radar Online that Roque loves the idea of Lauer dating someone new. She hopes the romance will speed up the divorce and get Lauer off her back.
The only potential hang-up is that Roque is looking for a major payout in the divorce, which could slow things down. But with Lauer hooking up with a new girl, he might be ready to move on and end things with Roque once and for all.
NBC fired Lauer last November after several women came forward with stories of his sexual misconduct. The former Today host was making upwards of $25 million a year, all of which has disappeared now that he is not with the network.
Roque is reportedly looking to score around $20 million in the divorce settlement, which is one reason why Lauer has been trying to unload a few of his estates.
The identity of Lauer’s new girlfriend is still unknown.
Sources say that Matt Lauer is keeping a tight lid on the relationship and that even her parents have no idea that she is dating a famous television host. Lauer has not commented on the rumors.
