The walls around Lauer continue to tumble down
It’s been nearly two months since Matt Lauer was ousted from Today after multiple women came forward with allegations of his sexual misconduct. But he needed one more kick in the ass, this time from Annette Lauer, his wife of nearly 20 years. The former model has booted him from the Hamptons home they shared with their three kids.
A source told Page Six that Matt is staying nearby so he can continue to spend time with his kids. And, not like you did, but, don’t even think about feeling bad for the former morning show host. He’s got three other homes to choose from (Page Six even refers to one as a “compound”) so he can keep hiding out in peace. For now.
Annette has yet to file for divorce but the paper reports it’s inevitable as they had already been living separate lives for the last decade. In fact, in 2006, she filed for divorce, citing “mental abuse, extreme mental and emotional distress, humiliation, torment and anxiety,” but she called it off after coming to an agreement, and he gave her more money. Fast-forward to now where, once again, she’s over it and he wants to make their marriage work — but this time, the circumstances are much, much different.
Scarlett Johansson calls out James Franco
On Saturday, during one of many Women’s Marches going on in North America, Scarlett Johansson took to the mic and called out actor James Franco, expressing how she simply couldn’t believe how a person could “publicly stand by an organization that helps to provide support for victims of sexual assault while privately preying on people who have no power.” Then Scar added for good measure, “I want my pin back, by the way.”
And while she didn’t actually say Franco’s name, a rep for the actress confirmed to Us Weekly that she was definitely referring to him. Time’s Up, James.
Whoa, Gwyneth Paltrow’s engagement ring is massive
Gwyneth Paltrow attended the Producers Guild Awards on Saturday, presenting Ryan Murphy with the Norman Lear Achievement Award in Television, but she completely stole Murphy’s thunder — with her giant ring.
The enormous sapphire from her fiancé, Brad Falchuk, stood out against her red dress and if Paris Hilton needs bodyguards to protect her engagement ring, Goop might want to consider doing the same thing. Wowza.
Ed Sheeran is officially off the market
ICYDK, Ed Sheeran has been dating the same girl, high school sweetheart Cherry Seaborn, for the last two and a half years. And now, he and Cherry are taking their relationship to the next level. The singer announced their engagement on Instagram in the most English way possible.
Ewan McGregor officially files for divorce
Hmm, guess Ewan McGregor‘s new relationship with his Fargo co-star, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, isn’t just a fling. TMZ reports that McGregor has filed for divorce from his wife of 22 years, Eve Mavrakis, citing “irreconciliable differences.”
This comes after photos of McGregor and Winstead surfaced back in October.
Mavrakis has broken her silence following the split, telling The Sun, “It’s disappointing and upsetting but my main concern is our four children are OK.” Which sends the message that this is all him and what he wants. But with no prenuptial agreement, Eve reportedly seeking sole custody while Ewan wants joint, this formerly easygoing, rumoured-to-be-open marriage, might get messy.
