We have learned that despite the huge scandal that involved him, Matt Lauer’s wife wanted to spend Christmas with him for the sake of their children. However, new reports say that although they did stay together in the days leading to the holiday, by Christmas day, she ended up kicking him out of her house!
As the two are getting ready for a full-blown divorce, one insider close to the estranged couple revealed that Annette Roque made the disgraced former Today co-host leave the house on December 25.
‘She’d allowed him to live on the property, but she did not want to be around Matt on Christmas. Annette did not pull the trigger [on filing for divorce] right away because of the kids. But she couldn’t separate rumor from fact any longer when it came to his misdeeds and abuse of power… told him to leave. Matt tried to plead his case, but Annette cut him off,’ the source dished.
That being said, even though the two were caught by the paparazzi alongside their daughter, Romy, 14, two days before Christmas in the Hamptons at the Bright Side Farm, the woman was merely putting on a brave face in order to ‘get them [their kids] through’ Christmas.
But even so, she couldn’t take it anymore, and by December 25 she has had enough.
Something must have changed her mind, making her think her effort was not worth it and that even the kids would be between off without Matt in the house.
She decided he was not allowed to be around the children or her during the holiday itself.
As for when she is planning on officially putting an end to their marriage, an insider claimed: ‘A divorce announcement should be coming any day now.’
Do you believe their divorce will take place sometime in 2018? What do you think about Annette kicking Matt out on Christmas?
