NBC is rallying around their top gun in the AM.
On Wednesday, NBC issued a statement expressing its support of TODAY anchor Matt Lauer — who continues to be dogged by tabloid rumors that he has abandoned his wife of 12 years, Annette, and the couple’s three young daughters after embarking on a clandestine affair with an unidentified woman.
Last week, Lauer and his wife issued statements vehemently denying the claims, which have appeared on the pages of two issues of The National Enquirer. Now it’s NBC’s turn to crank out the denials.
“The allegations surrounding Matt Lauer are completely inaccurate and unfounded. These accusations are reckless and harmful to the Lauer family. Equally reckless, irresponsible and inaccurate are the accusations about his Today show colleagues. Matt and his wife have spoken out on this on the record and will not be discussing it further.”
