Lauer was sacked from his gig as Today anchor last week after NBC received a "detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behaviour", with reason to believe "this may not have been an isolated incident".

Matt has no intention in returning to public life. "He plans to disappear and play golf", a source added told Page Six. He wants to be a regular Joe. To play golf and stay in the Hamptons. The report claims that during Lauer's 20 years at Today, he immediately "killed off" any man who could potentially succeed him, including at one point, Billy Bush, David Gregory and Josh Elliott. "His focus is on his family".

"She's back in the Hamptons to take care of the kids", another source told the Post.

It's been just over a week since former Today Show host, Matt Lauer, was sacked from NBC for sexual misconduct, and by the looks of it he's lost more than just his job and reputation.

He released a public apology in which he stated that he has a lot of work to do now in order to try and fix the damage that he has caused his family and everyone else.

In the wake of the news, Lauer released a statement in which he addressed the allegations against him. "I have no words for her husband". "They knew Matt was flirty and playful and may have had relationships over the years, but what they knew of those relationships was that they were consensual, and they weren't aware they went beyond that", the source told Us. "To the people I have hurt I am truly sorry", he said in a statement read by the "Today" show hosts.

Everybody feels betrayed. She is not going to stay with him and work it out. "As I am writing this I realize the depth of the damage and disappointment I have left behind at home and at NBC".

As for Lauer, he apologized for his behavior following his exit from the network: "Some of what is being said about me is untrue or mischaracterized, but there is enough truth in these stories to make me feel embarrassed and ashamed. I regret that my shame is now shared by the people I cherish dearly", he said.
