There is one thing you depend on with news reporters honesty. But should we also expect the truth about their personal lives as well as their take on the world news? Or should their off camera existence be off limits? Case in point, Matt Lauer. The National Enquirer – who has been doing a bang up job on discovering, reporting and proving spousal infidelities – is proudly standing by their story that Matt Lauer and wife Annette Roque have indeed broken up. Matt Lauer is angrily’ denying the accusations. So is Matt a liar liar with his pants on fire?
To address the rumors, Matt released a statement as damage control saying:
“I am living in my apartment with Annette and my children as a family and a couple. I have never moved out. I am not moving out. There is no truth to that. The accusations [of infidelity] are ridiculous, and I’m not going to [dignify] them with an answer. It’s not true.”
But the thing is, the National Enquirer is tenacious and they don’t let go of a juicy yummy scoop very easily. They have apparently been keeping an eagle eye on Matt’s actions. They stated:
“We can reveal that our reporters have staked out the apartment in the early morning hours and we haven’t seen Matt exit the place like he did in the past when he was living there. However, Matt shows up at the Today studios like usual – meaning that he’s coming from another location other than the family apartment where Annette lives with their three kids.”
Other proof’ that the two haven’t broken up? There have been sighting of the two both still wearing their wedding rings, which is supposed to be some kind of proof that they’re still together. But jewelry does not make a marriage.
So if the breakup is true, why the lies? Why not just come clean? Well apparently NBC wants to keep Matt Lauer family guy image. But shouldn’t you stay together for the kids not the network?
Do you think that Matt’s marital status would change the perception of the viewers in regards to his Today show duties?
