Book: Woman The Media Claimed Matt Lauer Had an "Affair" With Now Speaks and Says the Media Lied for Lauer -- There Was an "Absence of Consent"

But they made sure they did a movie and a TV show about sexual harassment at Fox.

And about Lauer? Our lips are sealed.

A group of women with fresh claims of sexual harassment against Matt Lauer has spoken out for the first time to Ronan Farrow, The Post can reveal.

Farrow has also spoken to the woman whose initial complaint to NBC led to the disgraced former "Today" show anchor’s firing.

She has made the difficult decision to come forward and name herself in Farrow’s explosive new book, "Catch and Kill," The Post is told.

...

While her relationship has been characterized in the past as an "affair" by NBC sources, her lawyer Ari Wilkenfeld told The Post: "At no point in time, did I say or do anything to encourage NBC to downplay my client's allegations. We clearly indicated an absence of consent." NBC -- who called Lauer's alleged behavior "reprehensible" and "appalling" -- declined to comment on this.

...

There are believed to be new allegations, as a source said: "A number of women with new claims spoke with Ronan."

...

One woman claimed that the anchor exposed himself in his office and asked her to touch him, and a second claimed he had sex with her in the middle of the day in his office.

A third woman claimed that Lauer gave her a sex toy, as first reported by Variety at the time he was fired.

Three former NBC staffers, who supported Lauer, said at the time that Lauer's relationships with women were consensual.

Matt Lauer and his lawyers declined comment.

The rest of this article describes a "long-term affair" with this woman who now says there was an "absence of consent." I don't know what the precise claim is -- that she was always coerced, etc.
