Matt Lauer Had An Affair With A High-Level NBC Star
More shocking information is coming out about former Today host Matt Lauer.
According to Page Six, Matt allegedly had an affair with a famous, well-respected broadcaster. The woman signed a nondisclosure agreement when she left NBC.
In Ronan Farrow’s new book, Catch and Kill, the journalist speaks about a fellow on-air NBC personality who was allegedly forced to sign a strict NDA when she left the network in 2012. However, it’s not clear if it’s the same woman written about at Page Six.
The outlet did not name the broadcaster at her request.
A source close to the situation stated, “Matt had influence over everyone’s career — one word and your career would be sunk. I know there was a clear imbalance of power in this woman’s relationship with Matt.”
Ronan wrote in his book that the unnamed former NBC broadcaster claimed Matt and another NBC exec also propositioned her and made lewd comments about her during broadcasts.
“I was like meat on a hook,” she said. “I would walk into work with a knot in my stomach. I would come home and cry.”
The woman never reported the men’s behavior to HR, but she did tell colleagues about the situation. When she left, NBC forced her to sign a nondisclosure agreement that kept her lips tight about her relationship with Matt.
Unbelievable, right?! We’re sure the woman’s identity will be out soon, though.
