A Wednesday night report in Page Six alleges that damning evidence against Matt Lauer included graphic sexual conversations and a photo sent to a one-time intern that made it impossible for the network to keep the anchor. Lauer’s dismissal from the network was announced just before 7:00 a.m. on Wednesday morning in a statement from NBC President Andy Lack.


According to Page Six, a source detailed the alleged photo.

“There’s at least one picture [sent to her by Matt] which was a major part of the evidence, which is why the firing came so quickly … my understanding was it was so damning that it was unquestionable whether or not he should be fired,” the source told Page Six.

The messages were allegedly sent during NBC’s coverage of the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

The source described the messages as ones that “showed incontrovertible proof of inappropriate sexual behavior on his part.”

Prior to Page Six’s report, Variety detailed a number of lurid allegations against Lauer by women who had been in his orbit.

“As the co-host of NBC’s “Today,” Matt Lauer once gave a colleague a sex toy as a present. It included an explicit note about how he wanted to use it on her, which left her mortified,” Variety reported. “On another day, he summoned a different female employee to his office, and then dropped his pants, showing her his penis. After the employee declined to do anything, visibly shaken, he reprimanded her for not engaging in a sexual act.”

Other allegations against Lauer include his proclivity to play the game “f**k, marry, or kill” in which he would detail which colleagues he wanted to sleep with, marry, or murder.

The well of content against Matt Lauer also included a hot mic video in which he is caught telling his “TODAY” co-host Meredith Vieira that he liked the view of her rear end.

Lauer has yet to comment on the allegations.
