On Monday, a source at NBC told ET that 59-year-old Lauer won't be paid beyond his last day of work - which was last Tuesday. "A condition of the consent granted to Orange Lakes Ltd.to purchase the lease for Hunter Valley Station is that the individuals with control of that company must continue to be of good character", Lisa Barrett, deputy chief executive of policy and overseas investment, said in her statement, referencing the holding company owned by Lauer and Roque. "Everybody feels betrayed." He added, "She is not going to stay with him and work it out".
Lauer and Roque married in 1998 and she filed for divorce in 2006, accusing the disgraced journalist of "cruel and inhumane" behavior before withdrawing her petition one month later after reaching a private agreement.
She's been staying at the couple's home in the Hamptons and has rarely left since the sexual misconduct claims against Lauer came out and he was sacked from the NBC morning show. "And it's shocking to think that there could be this side".
"The situation is so bad".
Mr Roque denied that his daughter had fled to Europe.
He continued: "I feel s**t about the whole thing. I don't know how the kids are doing", Henri Roque said.
Lauer, who reportedly signed a $20 million dollar contract past year, addressed the sordid allegations in a statement read on air last week by his former co-hosts.
NBC's announced on November 28 that Lauer was being fired for "inappropriate sexual behavior", cutting the star of its highly lucrative morning show. After the $20 million man's termination, more women came forward to testify against Lauer and his myriad of sexual peculiarities he tried to force onto multiple NBC employees.
Lauer was sacked last week amid multiple accusations of inappropriate behavior.
After his dismissal, Lauer issued a statement apologizing.
He also confessed that his full-time job from now on would be 'soul-searching.' We wonder if it's not a bit too late for this, considering that his wife took the kids and left and now everyone looks at him without respect.
But the anonymous former colleague questioned the claims.
