A young woman who began her career as an intern at Today before being promoted to a PA on the NBC morning show has revealed she had a sexual relationship with Matt Lauer.
Addie Zinone (nee Collins) writes in a essay for Variety that it all began when she went to lunch with Lauer in July 2000 after asking him for advice before she went off to start a new job in West Virginia, and instead found the host aggressively hitting on her.
When they returned to work, he sent her a message that read: ‘meet me’.
Text exchanges show that Lauer then told Zinone to head to an empty dressing room above Studio 1A so the two could have sex before he left at 3pm.
Lauer sent that text at 2.42pm, just two years into his marriage with second wife Annette.
