Matt Lauer & Natalie Morales Deny Affair Rumors
Reports spread that Natalie decided to leave her position at The Today Show and move to Los Angeles to work on Access Hollywood as Matt no longer wanted to work with her.
“There is absolutely no truth to this completely absurd story,” Natalie said in a statement (via Page Six). “It is damaging, hurtful and extremely sexist. I have proven myself in all aspects of my job as a news professional and journalist, and am adding to my role, taking on three jobs with Access Hollywood Live and Access Hollywood, in addition to Today. This move was dictated by me and my desire to grow in my career. Any insinuations beyond that are uninformed.”
“Every aspect of this story is untrue, and it’s frankly sad that someone would tell lies to harm everyone involved,” Matt added in his own statement.
