In 2006, Roque did actually file divorce papers.
At the time she cited “mental abuse, extreme mental and emotional distress, humiliation, torment, and anxiety.”
The guy is a monster.
However, she withdrew the filing after only a few weeks.
According to Page Six, she did this because “he offered her a postnuptial agreement and millions more dollars.” A small price to pay for keeping up the illusion that he wasn’t a totally gross human being, I guess.
Lucky for Lauer, he was paid an obscene amount of money at NBC, so forking over cash shouldn't be a big deal for him.
He was making $20 million a year at the network, and according to Page Six, “he owns a $36 million compound in North Haven, a house in Sag Harbor, and a 40-acre horse farm in Water Mill.”
But Lauer isn't giving in without a fight.
Apparently, the guy is still trying to save his marriage, which it seems has been over for much longer than these revelations about his behavior have been public.
A source close to Lauer told Page Six that he's still fighting to try and save his marriage but Roque "is being very cold."
As she should be! He’s been tormenting her and mentally abusing her for 10 years. Turns out the goofy guy on morning television had a much more sinister private life than we could have imagined. This move toward holding sexual predators responsible for their actions is saving a lot more people than we might think.
