Matt Lauer is not having an easy time after being fired from Today for sexual harassment, People reports.
“He is weak and broken and ashamed by his own admission. He is my friend. He is human, and he is flawed. But is he going to use his power to be a predator on women? Until I see solid evidence of that, I just can’t believe it. We don’t know the details,” a colleague told the mag.
“The reason people are so upset and people are crying on our staff, which is like 80 percent women, is because he was really loved and treated people really well. And it’s shocking to think that there could be this side,” they added.
Someone who might not be so shocked? Lauer’s wife Annette Roque. Since the scandal broke, the couple haven’t been wearing their wedding rings, and Roque’s father Henri told the Daily Mail that his daughter plans on filing for divorce.
“She is not going to stay with him and work it out. They are not together trying to work it out. I have no words for her husband. What he has done is bad. Everybody feels betrayed,” he told the outlet from his home in Amsterdam.
In a new development that’s gotta sting, the Today show is dominating morning ratings, and they’re already eyeing Craig Melvin as a replacement for the disgraced TV anchor.
This is what happens when you behave badly, folks!
