5. Matt's statement talked about his kids

Lauer has been widely criticized for the tone and content of the statement he released after the Brooke Nevils' allegations surfaced. He denied the rape allegations, calling them "categorically untrue." He opens the statement with talking about the fact that he stayed silent for his family. "Over the past two years people have asked why I have not spoken out to defend myself more vigorously against some of the false and salacious allegations leveled at me. It is a fair question and the answer is deeply personal. Despite my desire to set the record straight and confront the individuals making false allegations, I wanted nothing less than to create more headlines my kids would read and a new gathering of photographers at the end of our driveway. So I decided to just stay quiet and work on repairing my relationship with the people I love. It has been the most important full-time job I have ever had."
