Matt Lauer’s sexual misconduct scandal has not hurt his romantic life. The Today host is settling his multi-million dollar divorce and is reportedly dating a slew of women in the wake of his destroyed career.
“Matt is casually dating several ladies in the Hamptons,” an insider dished. “As far as Matt is concerned, he had a consensual affair and he’s been punished. Now he’s moving forward with his life.”
Last month, inside sources told Radar Online that Lauer is getting serious with a much younger blonde woman who lived in the Hamptons.

The insider claimed that Lauer and his mystery girl were planning a romantic vacation in New Zealand, and that his estranged wife, Annette Roque, could not be happier.
Roque is reportedly sick and tired of dealing with Lauer and wants him out of her life immediately. She is also grateful that Lauer is dating again because that keeps him from trying to get back with her.
The only thing Roque wants from Lauer is his money. After that, she could not care less if she ever sees him again.
Lauer lost his hosting gig on the Today show after several women came forward with accusations of sexual harassment in the workplace. Lauer was pulling down $25 million a year and lost it all in the wake of the scandal.
The disgraced TV host has already unloaded two of his estates to help pay the divorce settlement. Roque is reportedly nabbed around $20 million in the divorce, which will set her up nicely.
The rumors surrounding Lauer’s dating life come after fans noticed his absence during this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Lauer has covered the event on NBC for years. On Twitter, some fans sarcastically wondered why he failed to appear alongside his former co-stars, Hoda Kotb, Al Roker, and Savannah Guthrie.
Sources claim that Matt Lauer has been trying to get back on TV over the past few months. But given how fans reacted on social media over Thanksgiving, it is pretty clear his career is over.
