Matt Lauer and his wife Annette claim that the story of them splitting up is not true. The Today anchor says that allegations of him moving out of the family home are "a work of fiction."

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

Lauer is currently co-anchoring Today from the Cannes Film Festival. He adds, "Have we had a completely perfect, easy marriage? No. But the stories you've read over the years are not true. I don't think we're any different than any married couple that's been together for 12 years. The accusations [of infidelity] are ridiculous and I'm not going to [dignify] them with an answer. It's not true."

Annette Lauer is also speaking out telling the mag, "Out of self respect, I want to stand up for our family and protect them." As for previous marital difficulties, the former model admits to problems, but says, "We have worked through it."

Calls to Matt Lauer's rep have not been returned.
