Matt Lauer is cheating, according to the New York Daily News, and also the recent Vancouver Winter Olympics may have something to do with it. The charms of curling ensnared NBC Sports broadcaster Tiki Barber previously; add these helpless men are putty. Supposedly, Matt Lauer, age 52, cheated on his supermodel wife while covering the Winder Games up in Vancouver. According to the National Enquirer, Lauer and Roque have split over these allegations, possibly ending their 12-year marriage and placing Lauer in a very difficult financial situation where he might need a lot more than just a simple installment payday loans to pay his attorney’s fees and child support.
Matt Lauer adds cheating points to a checkered history
Was Matt Lauer considered a cheater before? It isn't clear but there are bumps in his relationship history. The Matt Lauer Wikipedia page explains that he was married from 1982 until 1989 to TV producer Nancy Alspaugh. At the end of that, he got a divorce. He dated TV newscaster Kristen Gesswein and even got engaged from 1989 to 1996. Of course that engagement was soon broken, as just two years later, Matt Lauer married Annette Roque, aka “Jade.” Roque has appeared in ads for Revlon and Victoria’s Secret, among others. While she was pregnant with their third child, they were separated and even on Sept. 13, 2006, filed for divorce. They made up before it became official, possibly because Lauer saw a future where he wouldn’t be able to maintain his “Today” show jet-set lifestyle.
He stood Annette up on Valentine’s Day
That’s a dead giveaway, as far as women are concerned. Matt Lauer partied hardy after his duties at the Vancouver Games were complete, and as the Daily News puts it, he “caught the eye of two good-looking Canadian broadcasters.” After he got back to New York, Annette was ready for a showdown. Annette's ring is now nowhere to be seen after numerous things were said. Matt Lauer and Annette Rogue have three children together: there's 8-year-old son Jack, 6-year-old daughter Romy and also the 2-year-old son Thijs (pronounced “tice”).
Keepin’ it down low
That's what the "Today" show and NBC are asking of Matt Lauer. They believe his audience wants a family man. And as everyone knows, television is all about appearances. Al Roker seems to every person a kind weatherman and interviewer, but for all we know, he could possibly be a super villain. Viewers will never really know thanks to the illusion of TV. Although Matt Lauer might seem the family man on TV, his real life is more complicated.
