According to Town and Country Magazine, Matt Lauer retreated to his Hamptons house (which, according to The Real Deal, has now been relisted for sale at $44 million) following the scandal to lay low and stay out of the spotlight. He and his former wife immediately separated, but officially divorced in 2019, sharing joint custody of their three children.
Today, Lauer is said to be dating Shamin Abas, a public relations executive who has been good friends with the former host for years. The pair spent the recent holidays together at Lauer’s home in New Zealand and according to OK!, have been in talks about having a big wedding in the Hamptons, where the couple spends most of their time together.
According to The Sun, Lauer has tried to get back into the good graces of his former friends and colleagues, but has had trouble gaining back any respect. Although, he did recently appear in NBC’s 70th anniversary tribute to the “Today” show, making an appearance four separate times (via Page Six).
