Matt Lauer's wife is spending time away from her husband... far, far away.
Annette Roque was photographed in Amsterdam having lunch with a female friend at Rijks. A source told Page Six that she's "regrouping."
"She was having lunch with a girlfriend. They were drinking red wine, and Annette did not have her wedding ring on. She was laughing through the whole lunch," the source said. "Annette is enjoying the European life. She is in a different mindset here. She is definitely regrouping."
She's doing it in style, too. The Michelin guide gives Rijks one star and said it's a "lively, luxurious brasserie."
Annette was dressed casually in a gray zip-up sweater.
The Amsterdam sighting comes a few weeks after it was reported that the disgraced former newsman had been kicked out of the family home in New York. The Jan. 22 report also said that Annette was on the verge of filing divorce documents after nearly 20 years of marriage.
Page Six said Matt is staying at another house near the family home in the Hamptons so that he can continue spending time with his kids.
The same day the report came out, both Matt and his wife, Annette Roque, were spotted at a horse farm in Sag Harbor on Long Island (although they were seen separately). Matt is reportedly trying to save his marriage, but Annette is "being very cold," a source told the paper.
This is hardly the first time the distant couple has had marital issues. Annette previously filed for divorce from Matt in 2006, but she withdrew the documents a few week later.
Matt was fired from "Today" last November amid a sexual misconduct scandal.
In a statement, Matt acknowledged many of the allegations levied at him were true.
"There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by words and actions. To the people I have hurt, I am truly sorry. As I am writing this I realize the depth of the damage and disappointment I have left behind at home and at NBC. 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. I regret that my shame is now shared by the people I cherish dearly," he said. "Repairing the damage will take a lot of time and soul searching and I'm committed to beginning that effort. It is now my full time job..."
