Brooke Nevils Accuses Matt Lauer of Rape
In Ronan Farrow’s new book “Catch and Kill” Brooke accuses Matt Lauer of anally raped her in his hotel room at the 2014 Sochi Olympics. The book reads;
“In Sochi, Nevils was tasked with working with former “Today” co-anchor Meredith Vieira, who’d been brought back to the show to do Olympics coverage. In her account, one night over drinks with Vieira at the hotel bar where the NBC News team was staying, they ran into Lauer, who joined them. At the end of the night, Nevils, who’d had six shots of vodka, ended up going to Lauer’s hotel room twice — once to retrieve her press credential, which Lauer had taken as a joke, and the second time because he invited her back. Nevils, Farrow writes, ‘had no reason to suspect Lauer would be anything but friendly based on prior experience’”.
She claims that once she was back in his hotel room, “Lauer — who was wearing a T-shirt and boxers — pushed her against the door and kissed her. He then pushed her onto the bed, ‘flipping her over, asking if she liked anal sex,’ Farrow writes. ‘She said that she declined several times.’”
She claims that she tried to tell him she wasn’t interested but she did it anyway. Farrow writes, “was in the midst of telling him she wasn’t interested again when he ‘just did it.’ “Lauer, she said, didn’t 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.” When Lauer asked if she liked it, she allegedly told him yes. She then tells Farrow that “she bled for days,” following the incident.
Brooke Nevils Developed a Relationship With Matt Lauer After The Incident
Farrow writes that after the incident Vevils continued her relationship with Matt, “Sources close to Lauer emphasized that she sometimes initiated contact. What is not in dispute is that Nevils, like several of the women I’d spoken to, had further sexual encounters with the man she said assaulted her.”
In an interview with Farrow, she alleged that it was not a relationship. “This is what I blame myself most for. It was completely transactional. It was not a relationship.” She claims that she continued the relationship as she was intimidated by the power he held over her career.
Brooke Nevils Reported The Rape Allegations
Brooke reported the incident to NBC Universal human resources with a lawyer. This caused NBC Universal to fire Lauer. In Farrow’s book, Nevils alleges that President of NBC News Noah Oppenheim, and Chairman of NBC News and MSNBC Andrew Lack “were emphasizing that the incident hadn’t been ‘criminal’ or an ‘assault’”. She claims that when she heard this she “threw up”.
She revealed that NBC Universal promised her anonymity but the company said internally that the incident happened at the Sochi Olympics. Her colleagues eventually figured out it was her and Farrow writes that her work life became torture.
“Nevils’s work life became torture. She was made to sit in the same meetings as everyone else, discussing the news, and in all of them colleagues loyal to Lauer cast doubt on the claims, and judgment on her.”
She claims that she never wanted money but NBC still paid her “seven figures” after she went on medical leave in 2018.
According to Farrow, “The network proposed a script she would have to read, suggesting that she had left to pursue other endeavors, that she was treated well, and that NBC News was a positive example of sexual harassment.”
