The numerous sexual assault allegations raised against Matt Lauer have already ruined his career, and now it looks like his marriage is coming crashing down too.

Lauer was fired from NBC in late November for several instances of sexual misconduct, and only more claims have came out after the shocking news first broke. Annette Roque, who has been married to the former “Today” host for 20 years, is now reportedly on the hunt for a lawyer and plans to squeeze as much money out of Lauer as she possibly can, reports Page Six.

Roque filed for divorce from Lauer back in 2006 for “mental abuse, extreme mental and emotional distress, humiliation, torment, and anxiety,” Page Six reports. The couple was able to reconcile after Lauer offered her a post-nuptial agreement guaranteeing her millions of dollars, leading Roque to back out on the divorce.

However, given the recent revelations against Lauer, Roque is back in the market for a lawyer in hopes of getting an even bigger settlement if they end up getting a divorce.

“The post-nup will likely specify how much Annette would get if they divorce, but she is expected to challenge it given Matt’s earnings since 2006, and given how he has humiliated her,” a source revealed to Page Six. “There are also issues over all the property and land they own, both in the Hamptons and abroad.”

Lauer was raking in a whopping $25 million a year at NBC thanks to his most recent contract with the network which he signed in 2016. Roque is reportedly hoping to cash in on that big contract if it comes to divorce.
