Anchorman Matt Lauer and his wife Annette are splitting up, according to various online reports.
Lauer, 52, has been anchoring The Today Show since 1997. Sources close to the show say that he and his wife have been "living apart for two months."
Annette, who has been married to the newsman for 12 years, has accused Matt of being unfaithful during The Today Show's coverage of the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, according to the Enquirer.
Reports also claim that Annette was made aware of her husband's cheating through Today Show staffers who allegedly witnessed Lauer "getting especially cozy" with two female broadcasters.
The couple have three children together. Back in 2006, while Annette was pregnant with their third child, she filed for divorce. However, one month later, she withdrew the petition.
A source tells the mag, "Matt is trying to keep this [split] on the down low. Lauer's NBC bosses are pressuring the presenter to maintain his image as a solid family man to appeal to his largely female audience."
Calls to Lauer's rep have not been returned.
