Longtime television host Matt Lauer was fired from NBC News over allegations of sexual misconduct, the organization announced Wednesday. The details of the allegations remained unclear, though the Today show said in a statement regarding the situation that it had received a “detailed” complaint.

“Matt Lauer has been terminated from NBC News, the Today show said in a statement Wednesday. “On Monday night, we received a detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace by Matt Lauer. As a result, we’ve decided to terminate his employment.”

Lauer has been married to former Dutch model Annette Roque since 1998. The pair have three children together: sons Jack Mathew Lauer and Romy Lauer and daughter Thijs Lauer.

Roque filed for divorce from Lauer once in the past, according to Roque accused Lauer of “cruel and inhumane” treatment and “extreme anger and hostility” in 2006 when she filed the papers, according to In Touch Weekly. The divorce papers, however, were subsequently withdrawn.

Lauer was previously married to television producer Nancy Alspaugh. Lauer and Alspaugh were married from 1981 to 1988.

Lauer joined NBC News in 1994. He became an anchor on the Today show in 1997. NBC News Chairman Andrew Lack said that while it was the first complaint they received about Lauer, the organization had “reason to believe” it might not have been an isolated incident. Lauer himself has not yet responded to the allegations leveled against him.
