Woman claims Matt Lauer 'anally raped' her, Ronan Farrow reports

Ronan Farrow reports in his forthcoming book Catch and Kill [Amazon] that TV host Matt Lauer is accused of raping a colleague at NBC News.

Lauer was fired in 2017 from his Today Show perch after reports of "inappropriate sexual behavior" were found credible by the network. Now that its severity is revealed, the lingering efforts to rehabilitate his career are surely over.

In the book, obtained by Variety, Nevils alleges that at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, Lauer anally raped her in his hotel room. ...

According to Nevils, she was in the midst of telling him she wasnt interested again when he just did it, Farrow writes. Lauer, she said, didnt use lubricant. The encounter was excruciatingly painful. It hurt so bad. I remember thinking, Is this normal? She told me she stopped saying no, but wept silently into a pillow. Lauer then asked her if she liked it. She tells him yes. She claims that she bled for days, Farrow writes.

Nevils tells Farrow: It was nonconsensual in the sense that I was too drunk to consent, she says. It was nonconsensual in that I said, multiple times, that I didnt want to have anal sex.
