Annette Roque Officially Files Divorce From Matt Lauer After Sex Scandal
Roque filed the divorce in Suffolk County Court on Tuesday, July 2.
The two originally split in 2017, after Lauer was fired from his role as Today show co-host. He was accused of inappropriate sexual behavior by several co-workers.
Roque and Lauer were still finalizing the separation of assets as part of their divorce, a source told ET.
“The choice to sell the house in the Hamptons is because of the divorce,” said the source. “Matt plans to stay in the Hamptons because he is very happy there. He has the privacy he needs and is at peace there.”
The source continued to say that, “he’s taking care of himself, he’s playing a lot of golf and going to the gym. He has found support from old friends who have reached out.”
According to the news outlet, one of the “old friends” is Lauer’s first ex-wife, Nancy Alspaugh. She told ET that Lauer has been “moving on” with his life and “doing incredibly well” amid the scandal and family drama.
“We have remained close and always will,” Alspaugh added. “And it makes me happy to see him move forward and living his life.”
Lauer and Roque share three children together, Jack, Romy and Thijs.
