Latest move seems to hint at her intentions
Matt Lauer’s wife, Annette Roque, has reportedly been meeting with lawyers as she considers divorcing her husband of 19 years.
Page Six reported on Wednesday night that Roque has been “meeting with lawyers about squeezing a bigger settlement out of [Lauer] if they proceed to a divorce.” She was spotted enterting the office of law firm Latham & Watkins in New York City on Wednesday.
Lauer was fired from the “Today” show at the end of November after NBC News received an internal complaint about “inappropriate sexual behavior” on Lauer’s behalf. Since his firing, a handful of other allegations of sexual misconduct have surfaced against Lauer, and former “Today” production assistant Addie Zinone detailed her alleged month-long affair with the anchor in Variety and on “Megyn Kelly Today.”
Of course, this isn’t the first time that Roque has considered divorcing her husband. Back in 2006, she went so far as to file for divorce from Lauer, citing “mental abuse, extreme mental and emotional distress, humiliation, torment and anxiety.” A few weeks later, though, Roque withdrew her filing.
