Matt Lauer has already shot down the rumors, his co-anchor Meredith Vieira calls them “a bunch of lies,” and Lauer’s weatherman-pal Al Roker says “everything is fine” with Lauer and his wife Annette Roque.
But the stories of Lauer’s infidelity continue with another cover story in “The National Enquirer” this week, this time involving other members of the “Today” show family including Natalie Morales and Jenna Wolfe. The story has prompted this response from NBC News:
The allegations surrounding Matt Lauer are completely inaccurate and unfounded. These accusations are reckless and harmful to the Lauer family. Equally reckless, irresponsible and inaccurate are the accusations about his “Today” show colleagues. Matt and his wife have spoken out on this on the record and will not be discussing it further.
Last week’s Enquirer story got widespread, mainstream pickup in publications including the Daily News and Los Angeles Times.
