More Women Accuse Matt Lauer of Sexual Assault
The Rockefeller Center tree lighting took place last night, and the show went on without Matt Lauer. Lester Holt showed up instead.
After Matt was fired yesterday, more women came forward, and the accusations are outrageous. Matt allegedly gave one woman a sex toy as a present, including a note on how he wanted to use it on her. He allegedly showed his privates to a female he summoned to his office. When she declined, he reportedly reprimanded her. Apparently, it was common for Matt to invite staff to his hotel rooms.
Speaking of summoning, a former producer was reportedly summoned to Matt’s office one day. He allegedly locked the door with a button under his desk, told her to unbutton her blouse, he pulled down her pants, bent her over a chair, and had sex with her. The woman claims she passed out and woke up on floor. Matt’s assistant brought her to a nurse. The producer blamed herself for what happened, and left the network a year later.
Matt issued an apology this morning. “Some of what is being said about me is untrue or mischaracterized, but there is enough truth in these stories to make me feel embarrassed and ashamed. Repairing the damage will take a lot of time and soul searching and I’m committed to beginning that effort.”
Jay-Z V. Kanye
Jay-Z is speaking out about Kanye. He sat down with The New York Times, and was asked what his relationship with Kanye was like today.
“I love Kanye. I do. It’s a complicated relationship with us… I’ve always been like his big brother and we’re both entertainers… there’s gonna be complications in the relationship that we have to get through. The only way we get through that is we sit down, have a dialogue, and say ‘these are the things I’m uncomfortable with, these are the things that are unacceptable to me, this is what I feel…’ There are certain things that happened that’s not really acceptable to me, and we just need to speak about it. However the relationship evolves, there’s genuine love there.”
