The stat that 50% of all marriages end in divorce should shock no one with this news. According to a report issued by The National Enquirer, the Today show host Matt Lauer has reportedly moved out of his house after his wife, Annette Roque, him of cheating on her while he was covering the Winter Olympics in Vancouver. Before you go and role your eyes about the Enquirer being the source, recognize that the cheap tabloid was the first to break the news about the John Edwards and Tiger Woods cheating scandals, so there might be some nugget or kernel of truth to these reports. Actually, beyond the tabs, there are other reputable and credible sources confirming this story.
The paper reports that Roque, who has been married to Lauer for 12 years, accused him of "fooling around during his on-site coverage of the Olympics in Vancouver" and that Lauer "went wild" while in Canada. He moved out of the couple's apartment after an "explosive two-day fight." Jeez. Can’t any man in Hollywood keep it in his pants?
Radar Online also reported that Lauer stood his wife up for Valentine's Day, choosing instead to stay in Vancouver and have his dude fun. Sources over at that outlet claim Lauer was spotted boozing it up and being flirtatious with a pair of young Canadian broadcasters. Word is that one of Lauer's colleagues at NBC unearthed his partying and promptly told his wife. Looks like Lauer doesn't have too many friends at the office, er, set.
Lauer's mother-in-law Johanna Struijk confirmed to RadarOnline that the couple are no longer living together, and that Roque is not wearing her wedding ring. So it appears that these reports aren't completely false or hearsay. It's not a shock, either, since this isn't the first time cheating has cast a shadow over Lauer. Mere months before their wedding, Roque reportedly learned he had been having a relationship with a married women. When Roque was preggers with their third child in 2006, she filed for divorce, but withdrew the petition within a month.
Is Matt Lauer in the doghouse? Will his wife take him back again?
