Matt Lauer Denies Rumors of Marital Split and Cheating

Entertainment Tonight, Thursday, May 13, 2010, 5:01pm (PDT)

Matt Lauer is slamming reports that he has split from his wife Annette, and he calls the rumors that he has cheated on her "ridiculous."

"I am living in my apartment with Annette and my children as a family and a couple," the "Today" show host tells People.com. "I have never moved out. I am not moving out. There is no truth to that."

The couple briefly split up in 2006 when Annette filed for divorce, but they soon reunited.

"Have we had a completely perfect, easy marriage? No. But the stories you've read over the years are not true," he says.

"I don't think we're any different than any married couple that's been together for 12 years," he continues. "The accusations [of infidelity] are ridiculous and I'm not going to [dignify] them with an answer. It's not true."
