In Touch Weekly: Matt Lauer’s Wife Accused Him of “Cruel and Inhumane” Treatment in Divorce Papers (REPORT)

In Sept. 2006, the Today show anchor’s wife, Annette, filed for divorce, only to withdraw her lawsuit weeks later. And now the legal documents have surfaced — in which the 48-year-old alleges to have experienced “cruel and inhumane” treatment at the hands of her husband, who allegedly demonstrated “extreme anger and hostility” toward her.

“The conduct of defendant [Matt] so endangers the physical and mental well-being of the plaintiff [Annette] so as to render it unsafe and improper for plaintiff to cohabit with defendant,” Nancy Chemtob, an attorney for the former model, reportedly argued in the legal documents. “Defendant has continuously and repeatedly given higher priority to … personal interests than his family obligations to plaintiff, causing plaintiff to feel abandoned, isolated and alone in raising the parties’ children.”
