Last year November, former “Today” show host Matt Lauer was fired after alleged inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace. The allegations caused a huge rift between him and his wife Annette Roque.


Eventually, the two agreed to divorce and now it has been revealed that they’ve reached a settlement. According to Page Six, the television host is willing to pay his wife millions.

Matt Lauer was said to be “bending over backwards” to give his soon to be ex-wife Annette Roque everything she wants in their divorce. According to friends, it’s because he feels guilty for cheating with multiple women at work.

It’s said that he’s already agreed to pay Roque, his wife of nearly 20 years, up to $20 million. Friends shared that the two were now getting along.

A source said, “Things really have settled down. Matt and Annette are getting on and they’re both spending time with their kids. They hope to settle the divorce very soon.”

In 2016, Lauer bought the estate from Richard Gere for $36.5 million. It is set on 6.3 acres on the peninsula of North Haven near Sag Harbor.


The divorce process between the two has been smoother because the couple had already signed a “postnup” after Lauer persuaded Roque to drop her divorce filing in 2006. At the time, she had cited “mental abuse, extreme mental and emotional distress, humiliation, torment and anxiety,” after finding out that he had been unfaithful.

However, she withdrew the filing months later after signing the postnup. So far, the former host has sold his Upper East Side apartment for more than its $7.35 million asking price.


He also has one of his Sag Harbor homes on the market for $12.75 million but his New Zealand farm is currently still in his possession.

The source added, “Matt’s bending over backwards to give Annette everything she wants because he feels so guilty. But he would love the Hamptons home.”

The couple is believed to have agreed to share custody of their three children, Jack, 17, Romy, 14, and Thijs, 11.
