Annette Roque is said to be furious at Matt Lauer, her husband of 19 years.
The couple, who have been through ups and downs in the public eye, have managed to raise three beautiful children together — sons 16-year-old Jack, 16, and Thijs, 11, and daughter Romy, 14.
Past scandals left the Roque and Lauer unfazed as they continued to live a lavish lifestyle between New York and the Hamptons in beautiful mansions and beachfront properties where they are occasionally seen enjoying horseback riding.
However, all of that came to a crumbling end last month when Lauer was fired from his post on TODAY after several women accused him of sexual assault or even rape.
Not only did Lauer lose his 20 million dollars per year gig, but he also embarrassed and humiliated his entire family and entourage.
A source close to the former model has revealed to Life & Style magazine that she is once more thinking about divorcing the former talk show host.
She is not only hurt, but as a mother, she feels that the scandal has ruined the legacy he was supposed to leave behind for his children.
The person in the know said: “She is furious with Matt for leaving this legacy for their children. Matt let her down, yes, and their children have to deal with it, that is what makes her especially angry.”
The insider added: “Annette has survived one brutal gut punch after another over the scandal. She has told a small circle of friends and family members that she feels completely betrayed.”
Another source explained that Lauer will not let his spouse go without a fight.
He knows that he has hurt and betrayed her, but he is working hard to show her that he is a changed man. Mr. Lauer will do everything to win back her love and trust.
The tipster close to Lauer shared: “The last thing Matt wants to deal with on the heels of his ruined career…is a divorce.”
Ari Wilkenfeld, who represents Lauer’s first accuser, gave a sad update by saying: “She is living in constant fear that people are going to track her down and figure out who she is. There’s a hunt underway to find out who she is and I think that is going to have a chilling effect on other women who want to come forward and share their stories with the world.”
Wilkenfeld added: “It was difficult for her like it is for all victims of sexual harassment. It is scary. And that is why many women want to have those meetings, and they want to close the door and never be heard from again.”
Will this marriage survive?
