Matt Lauer’s Lawyers Is Fighting For $30 Million Payout From NBC
Matt Lauer’s lawyers are trying to get the fired Today cohost $30 million after being fired, reports Page Six.
Apparently, Matt’s team is working on a plan to get him paid through the remainder of his $20 million a year contract. He still has a year and a half to run.
“They are currently looking at his contract and determining whether the claims against him, which clearly would affect any moral clause in his contract and his ensuing termination would cut off his contractual rights to be paid through to the end of his contract,” a source said.
Another TV insider said, “There is no way Matt is getting paid. There has been an irrevocable breach of Matt’s contract, there is a moral clause that says if he brings the company into disrepute — which he clearly has — NBC can terminate his employment immediately without pay and they do not have to pay out his contract.”
