Matt Lauer's Legal Team Responds to 'Today' Show Booker's Allegation

Matt Lauer is responding to more allegations of sexual misconduct.

Melissa Lonner, a former Today show booker, claims in Ronan Farrow‘s new book Catch & Kill that the former NBC host exposed himself to her in 2010.

According to Melissa, Matt got her away from a company cocktail party and into an empty office, where he guided her to the sofa, made small talk and unzipped his pants to expose himself.

Matt never exposed himself to anyone. This ridiculous story has been shopped around for years. Many allegations that are being circulated were never raised during any fact-checking process. And despite repeated requests for an advance copy of this book, we have not been provided one, while many media outlets have. Matt will have more to say at an appropriate time, but he will not take part in the marketing circus for this book,” his attorney, Elizabeth M. Locke, said in response to the allegation.

Ronan Farrow's Book Alleges Matt Lauer Exposed Himself to 'Today Show' Producer

Ronan Farrow‘s new book “Catch and Kill” includes another allegation against Matt Lauer.

An excerpt from the book was previously released and detailed NBC News employee Brooke Nevils‘ allegation that Lauer anally raped her while in Sochi for the Olympics.

Now, Farrow writes that Today‘s former entertainment booker Melissa Lonner alleged back in 2010 that Lauer exposed himself to her in his office and also propositioned her.

Lonner reportedly received a six-figure amount for signing a “release of rights” from NBC after she left the company in 2013 and she was unable to talk to Farrow, but former Today co-anchor Ann Curry did speak to the journalist.

“She told me that complaints about Lauer verbally harassing women in the office were well known in her day — and that once, in 2010, a colleague had pulled her into an empty office and broken down, saying Lauer had exposed himself and propositioned her,” Farrow wrote (via Page Six). “It was as close as you could get to a women just melting in front of you in pain.”

Sources close to Lauer claim that he only remembers making a joking lewd gesture to Lonner.
