Tyrannical Matt Lauer Allegedly Sexted Young NBC Interns, Who Were Afraid Of Him, NBC Glad He’s Gone


Matt Lauer has also been accused of sexting female staffers at NBC, allegedly sending lewd messages and revealing pictures to women including a young intern.  Sources say that the reason he was fired immediately by NBC,  is that the messages, saved by an NBC employee whom he approached while they were in Sochi, Russia, for the 2014 Winter Olympics, “showed incontrovertible proof of inappropriate sexual behavior on his part.”


It is believed the first woman to come forward and complain about Lauer is a junior production worker who was at the 2014 Sochi Olympics as an intern, where she was first approached by Lauer.

NBC News President Andy Lack said in a meeting with staff Wednesday that Lauer’s involvement with the woman, who has not been named but is still an NBC employee, continued after they returned to New York.


A source told Page Six, “There’s at least one picture [sent to her by Matt] which was a major part of the evidence, which is why the firing came so quickly … my understanding was it was so damning that it was unquestionable whether or not he should be fired.


“I think everyone was a bit surprised how quickly this all turned around. No one expected his termination to happen that quickly. I believe the silver bullet was the photo and that was so damning that they had no other option but to fire him.


“Plus, the girl had a high-power attorney and so everyone knew if NBC didn’t make a decision and push it out quick, they would have arranged for a sit-down interview with a competitor [and the messages could be made public]. Matt took the news well once he realized he was in a corner. He was very apologetic.”


Lauer’s spokesperson declined to comment, as did his personal attorney when approached numerous times by Highlight Hollywood. NBC reps also declined to comment on his alleged sexting.


Since news of Lauer’s firing broke early Wednesday morning, two other women have reported to NBC’s human resources  with claims against Lauer, one of whom claimed the $25 million-a-year anchor summoned her to his office for sex, telling the New York Times, that  she “felt helpless because she didn’t want to lose her job.”
