Matt Lauer nears $50 million divorce settlement

A former co-host on a popular morning show is preparing to shell out a cool $50 million to his former wife. Sources say the fallen anchor is furious about handing over real estate and half of his net worth. In Georgia and other states, a celebrity divorce settlement such as this can cost well into the millions.

Matt Lauer, the disgraced co-host of the Today Show, was axed in November 2017 amid multiple allegations of sexual misconduct from female colleagues. He was officially replaced by Hoda Kotb in January 2018. He is fuming over the pending settlement and believes he may receive a better deal if he were to battle it out in court. Sources say he knows a lengthy court battle would draw even more negative attention and unwanted headlines to himself.

Lauer expressed regret for the pain and sorrow he caused and admitted there is enough truth in the complaints lodged against him. As his divorce nears settlement, Lauer is ready to sign over a horse farm along with the family's current home. His ex-wife, Annette Roque, is set to receive a single payment of $25 million, which equates to one year of Lauer's former salary. She will not receive any child support for their three children or spousal support.

A divorce of this magnitude can be complicated and complex, and asset protection is critical. In Georgia, an attorney can take the necessary steps to identify, appraise and inventory all assets. A well-seasoned lawyer will take specific steps to negotiate a fair settlement for his or her client.
