A US TV author who has indicted NBC news horde Matt Lauer of rape attempted self-murder after her purported ordeal, a bombshell book reveals.
Brooke Nevils also suffered PTSD following a purported 2014 conflict when she and Lauer were in Sochi, Russia, covering a Winter Olympics.
Her harrowing account, energetically denied by Lauer, is spelled out in striking fact in Ronan Farrow’s new book Catch And Kill.
The Pulitzer Prize-winning author helped hint a #MeToo transformation with his stating in 2017 on abashed Hollywood noble Harvey Weinstein.
Now, his vehement interviews with Nevils – who waived her anonymity – exhibit contemptible sum of a allegations opposite former Today presenter Lauer.
Her censure eventually led to Lauer being sacked in 2017 – though a romantic fee of a purported attack lingered on, it’s claimed.
In a book, out on Tuesday, Farrow writes: “Over a past dual years, Nevils had attempted suicide.
“She’s been hospitalised for post-traumatic highlight disorder, descended into complicated drinking, pulled herself back.”
He added: “She’d mislaid fourteen pounds.
“And left to doctors twenty-one times in a single-month period.”
Nevils told Farrow that Lauer anally raped her while she was dipsomaniac on vodka in a Sochi hotel room during NBC’s 2014 Olympic coverage.
She was publicly identified as Lauer’s rape prosecution for a initial time in a book – that focuses purported efforts by absolute companies and people to cover adult scandals.
Nevils added: “I’ve mislaid all we cared about. My job. My goals.”
Nevils, 35, pronounced she continued her “completely transactional” attribute with a then-married anchor.
She also minute to Farrow dual other passionate encounters she claims were also non-consensual.
One time, Lauer “grabbed her hips” and achieved a sex act on her while she looked for something in his office, it’s alleged.
And Nevils claims she gave Lauer verbal sex in sell for recording a goodbye summary for her then-boyfriend, who was withdrawal NBC.
Farrow writes: “When she asked Lauer for his (video), he told her to come to his bureau to record it herself.
“When she arrived, she said, he told her to go down on him.”
‘I JUST FELT SICK’
Nevils removed in a book: “I was unequivocally upset. we felt terrible.
“I was perplexing to do this good thing, and we had to give Matt a blow pursuit to get him to film a goodbye video. we only felt sick.”
Elsewhere in a book, it’s suggested Nevils was paid a seven-figure allotment by NBC after stating her purported rape to tellurian resources.
But it’s purported that NBC bosses downplayed her claims as zero some-more than “sexual misconduct”.
And Nevils became widely famous as Lauer’s prosecution after network execs plainly discussed a allegations, a book claims.
Farrow writes that as colleagues began to spin on her, she told a tighten friend: “You need to know we was raped, and NBC lied about it.”
In a matter final week, Lauer panned Nevils’ accusations as fake and insisted their passionate encounters were consensual.
NBC have slammed a book as a allegation by Farrow – a former NBC worker who network boss Noah Oppenheim claims has “an mattock to grind.”
In a memo to NBC News staff on Monday, Oppenheim wrote of a book: “It is built on a array of distortions, confused timelines and undisguised inaccuracies.”
