Matt Lauer came face-to-face with many of his former co-workers over the weekend at the wedding of Today show producer Jennifer Long and Reid Sterrett.
The nuptials took place in New York City on Saturday and Lauer attended along with his former colleagues, Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker, and Hoda Kotb, who were all photographed at the reception.
Lauer, 65, attended the wedding with his girlfriend, Shamin Abas, while Guthrie was joined by her husband, Michael Feldman.
According to TMZ, Guthrie walked over to Lauer ahead of the ceremony and gave him a hug and a kiss, and they spoke for a few minutes.
Guthrie also reposted a photo from the wedding with the bride and several other attendees.
In 2017, Lauer was fired from the Today show after being accused of sexual misconduct, which he denied. Guthrie and Kotb announced Lauer’s exit from the morning show live on the air, and Kotb went on to replace him at the anchor desk.
Then in 2019, journalist Ronan Farrow wrote in his book, Catch and Kill, that Today show employee Brooke Nevils accused Lauer of raping her while they were working at the Sochi Olympics together. Lauer denied the allegations, saying, “I have never assaulted anyone or forced anyone to have sex. Period.”
After the news of the rape allegations broke, Guthrie and Kotb addressed Nevils’ allegation on Today. “This is shocking and appalling and I honestly don’t even know what to say about it. And I think I speak for all of us when I say we’re disturbed,” Guthrie said at the time.
Kotb added, “We don’t know all the facts in all of this but they’re not allegations of an affair. They’re allegations of a crime. And I think that’s shocking to all of us here who’ve sat with Matt for many, many years.”
Also at the wedding this weekend were ousted Good Morning America‘s GMA3 co-anchors T.J. Holmes and Amy Robach, who were seen walking hand-in-hand into the event.
The couple’s public appearance comes just days after the release of their new podcast, Amy and T.J. The two left their morning show positions earlier this year, and now their former spouses, Marilee Fiebig and Andrew Shue, are also dating.
