After excerpts from Farrow's book were published by Variety on Tuesday night, Lauer released a letter rebutting the claim that he sexually assaulted Nevils, an allegation that led in part to his firing from the Today show in 2017.

"Today, nearly two years after I was fired by NBC, old stories are being recycled, titillating details are being added, and a dangerous and defamatory new allegation is being made. All are being spread as part of a promotional effort to sell a book," he writes in part. "...In a new book, it is alleged that an extramarital, but consensual, sexual encounter I have previously admitted having, was in fact an assault. It is categorically false, ignores the facts, and defies common sense."

"Each act was mutual and completely consensual," Lauer further insists in the letter. "...I have never assaulted anyone or forced anyone to have sex. Period."

  Today Anchors React to Matt Lauer Rape Allegation: 'This Is Shocking and Appalling' — Watch Video Today on Wednesday addressed detailed allegations leveled against disgraced former co-anchor Matt Lauer, who now stands accused of rape. Lauer, who was famously and abruptly fired by NBC in November 2017 following claims of inappropriate sexual behavior, is now alleged to have anally raped former NBC News staffer Brooke Nevils when they were both in Sochi covering the 2014 Winter Olympics. According to Ronan Farrow’s new book Catch and Kill, Nevils eventually took her allegations to human resources, but they were characterized as being neither “criminal” nor “assault.” Soon after, her “work life became torture.

Former NBC News employee Brooke Nevils alleges Matt Lauer raped her while she worked for the network, in a new book by Ronan Farrow. Former Today co-anchor Ann Curry , who was controversially fired from the show in 2012, also spoke out in support of Nevils .

Ronan Farrow shared why Brooke Nevils ' claims ultimately led to Matt Lauer ' s demise and how much money she walked away with in an interview with Brooke Nevils received a 'seven-figure settlement to ensure that she can't talk about what the network knew about it' said Ronan Farrow on Monday.

This isn't the first time Curry has spoken out against Lauer. In a January 2018 interview with CBS This Morning, Curry openly addressed the sexual misconduct allegations that led to the firing of Lauer in November 2017.

"I am not surprised by the allegations," she told Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell.

King then pressed Curry about speculation as to whether Lauer was behind her leaving Today. "You'll have to ask someone else," she said. "It hurt like hell."

During Wednesday's episode of the Today show, Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb discussed the latest allegations against Lauer on the air, with Guthrie saying that they are "disturbed to our core."

"This is shocking and appalling and I honestly don't even know what to say about it," Guthrie said. "... I know it wasn't easy for our colleague, Brooke, to come forward then. It's not easy now. We support her and any women who have come forward with claims."
