'Everybody feels betrayed': Matt Lauer's wife Annette Roque ditches wedding ring, her father says pair will divorce

MSNBC's Craig Melvin in running to replace Matt Lauer on 'Today' show (reports)

The former Today host, who was sacked November 29 from NBC after complaints about inappropriate sexual behavior, appears in Lady Bird, A24's Bush-era coming-of-age drama; in one scene, star Saoirse Ronan watches Lauer on a newscast reporting about the war in Afghanistan.

Lauer's shocking termination from the show happened just one week ago and while his former co-hosts and colleagues were devastated by his firing, the network could be filling in his spot sooner then we think.

After he was sacked from NBC for decades of alleged sexual harassment, the veteran journalist said he was committed to making "soul searching" his new "full-time job". "He plans to disappear and play golf", a source told the New York Post.

Last week, Lauer was accused of sexual misconduct by several women and fired by NBC, which received a "detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behavior". Melvin is now on MSNBC live and also co-hosts, Today, on Saturdays. While the reporter has been seen in Sag Harbor with his wedding band still on, his wife Annette Roque has been recently spotted without her wedding ring. "To the people I have hurt, I am truly sorry", the statement read. "As I am writing this I realize the depth of the damage and disappointment I have left behind at home and at NBC", he said.

Rumors have been swirling about Lauer's marriage with former model Annette Roque. Roque was spotted dropping off her three children with Lauer at school and reportedly was not wearing her wedding ring. He told DailyMailTV, "I have no words for her husband". It's been humbling. I am blessed to be surrounded by the people I love.

"She is not going to stay with him and work it out. They are not together trying to work it out", her father, Henri, stated. "I thank them for their patience and grace".

The 76-year-old added his daughter is "feeling shocked" and "is now having sorrow for her children".

"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".
