Disgraced news anchor Matt Lauer was spotted driving his new motorcycle in public after a long period of solitude.


According to Daily Mail, former NBC news reporter Matt Lauer was seen in public for the first time on a brand new Harley motorcycle in the Hamptons on Friday.

Lauer resorted to staying away from the public eye in the Hamptons after his infamous sexual misconduct scandal broke out in November 2017. The scandal led to an unexpected firing of the former Today show host.

Lauer's firing came into effect after an unidentified NBC employee complained about him to the executives of the network. The female employee accused of Lauer harassing her during the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.

The 60-year-old was also seen driving a 1987 Land Rover with his son. The car had the 'For Sale' sign posted on one of its windows. He tried to keep a low profile by wearing a cap and dark glasses


As reported to People, NBC released the findings of an internal investigation into Lauer in May 2018, over five months after his firing.

The investigation was led by NBC Universal general counsel Kim Harris and focused on four specific cases that accused Lauer. The investigation resulted in over 70 interviews with current and former NBC employees.

Harris also interviewed 30 focus groups with 262 current employees. The investigation team concluded that they found the four complainants to be credible after carrying out multiple interviews.

The investigations also confirmed that they found no evidence that the leadership team in the network was made aware of Lauer's inappropriate behavior before the unnamed woman accused him of misconduct.   


Shortly after the Lauer's firing, his wife, Annette Roque, fled to her hometown in Europe and eventually filed for divorce. According to Inquisitr, Roque demanded $20 million from the 60-year-old along with two of their homes.

A source claimed that Roque would not ask Lauer for child support if he agreed to pay her the sum. However, Lauer would be paying for major expenses of their three children's education and healthcare until they reach the age of 21.
