Matt Lauer Denies Cheating on Wife

| by

Matt Lauer has spoken about the rumors of his infidelity.

Lauer spoke to People and stated,

“I am living in my apartment with Annette and my children as a family and a couple,” Lauer spoke from France, where he’s been co-anchoring the NBC morning show from the Cannes Film Festival. “I have never moved out. I am not moving out. There is no truth to that.”

Annette Lauer stated in a separate interview with PEOPLE,

“Out of self respect, I want to stand up for our family and protect them.”

This is not the first time rumors of infidelity have hounded Lauer, and in 2006, his wife briefly filed for divorce.  Lauer did acknowledge past difficulties in the 12-year marriage – but calls the reports of cheating ”ridiculous” and “offensive”.  

“Have we had a completely perfect, easy marriage? No. But the stories you’ve read over the years are not true,” Lauer said. “I don’t think we’re any different than any married couple that’s been together for 12 years,” he adds. “The accusations [of infidelity] are ridiculous and I’m not going to [dignify] them with an answer. It’s not true.”

What do you think – is this just a “normal” married couple going through their ups and downs??  Or did Lauer cheat?
