Matt Lauer has largely remained out of the public eye since being fired from NBC's "Today" in 2017 following sexual assault allegations, but now his ex-wife, Nancy Alspaugh, is sharing a bit of insight regarding his "new life."

In an interview with In Touch, Lauer's first wife revealed that the one-time anchor has been "doing great" in recent years. After stating that she has continued to keep in contact with him, Alspaugh also shared a bit about the positive effect that his current relationship with his new girlfriend, Shamin Abas, has had on him.

"He’s very happy with his new life," Alspaugh said, adding, "I don’t talk to him about his relationship with Shamin, but he’s very happy."

News of Lauer and Abas' relationship first emerged last December when a source told In Touch that she was "thrilled" to be dating him. Additionally, the couple was seen on a "secret holiday getaway" in New Zealand that same month. While on the trip, they reportedly stayed at Lauer's $9M lakefront farm and spent their time riding bikes and sightseeing.

However, the conversation surrounding Lauer has not been entirely positive since he left his position at NBC. Reports have indicated that not only did the alleged events of his past cause him to make a "quick exit" at a New York City event in March, but insiders have also claimed that he was upset by "Today" host Hoda Kotb's specific choice during a live broadcast of the morning news show in May.

Additionally, in May, he published an op-ed on Mediaite that focused on Ronan Farrow's reporting in his 2019 book, "Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies, and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators." In the piece, which included a specific "barbed passage," Lauer questioned the validity of Farrow's investigative efforts. As a result, a source told In Touch that those who have been around Lauer in recent years have found themselves "exhausted by his arrogance" following his dismissal from NBC.
