There were plenty of warning signs about Matt Lauer‘s predatory behavior.
As we previously reported, the (now former) Today show cohost was fired from NBC News after it was revealed that a “detailed complaint” accused the industry vet of “inappropriate sexual behavior.” And while many are floored by this shocking update, it seems that Katie Couric teased Lauer’s bad behavior all the way back in 2012.
During a ’12 appearance on Andy Cohen‘s Watch What Happens Live, Couric claimed Lauer pinched her bottom A LOT during her tenure on Today. The confession came about after Andy asked the celebrated journalist about Matt’s “most annoying habit” amid a Plead The Fifth segment.
Surprisingly, very few media outlets picked up the admission at the time AND NBC apparently did nothing to address Katie’s claim. Be sure to watch the admission for yourself (below)!
