Annette Roque, the wife of disgraced NBC anchor Matt Lauer, is lawyering up for the couple’s impending divorce battle — and plans to win bigly, Page Six reported.
Roque, a former model, was seen visiting the New York offices of Latham & Watkins, the world’s highest grossing law firm.
Lauer was accused in November of sexual harassment and bullying by several NBC employees and fired from his job as co-host of NBC’s Today program.
Roque once tried to divorce Lauer in 2006, citing “cruel and inhumane acts” and his demonstrating “extreme anger and hostility towards [Roque].” That suit reportedly ended in a post-nuptial agreement guaranteeing Roque millions of dollars.
But a source told Page Six that because of the public humiliation she has endured after Lauer’s accusations and firing she will likely seek a much larger settlement than what is contained in the post-nup.
Lauer was making $25 million a year after renewing his contract in 2016.
