TV producer Brooke Nevils hit the headlines in October 2019 after accusing disgraced NBC host Matt Lauer of raping her. She made the revelation on journalist Ronan Farrow’s book “Catch and Kill.”
According to Brooke, the alleged rape transpired during the 2014 Sochi Olympics in Matt’s hotel room.
Then-a NBC employee Brooke had arrived in Sochi to work with former “Today” host Meredith Vieira. One night while the pair were enjoying their drinks at the hotel bar, they were joined by Matt.
As the night progressed, Matt lured an intoxicated Brooke into his hotel room — first by stealing away her credential as a joke and then by inviting her back.
Once Brooke entered the room for the second time, Matt forced himself into her. After pushing her into bed, he then flipped her over while questioning if she liked having a*al sex.
Despite declining several times, Brooke claimed that Matt “just did it.” Admittedly, she bled for days following the alleged rape.
Explaining the rape accusation, Brooke told Ronan:
“It was non-consensual in the sense that I was too drunk to consent. It was non-consensual in that I said, multiple times, that I didn’t want to have a*al sex.”
Upon her return to New York, Brooke continued having sex with her alleged rapist. She described the so-called encounters as purely transactional instead of labeling it as a relationship.
Fast forward to the year 2017 and Brooke had a change of hearts. She reported the Sochi incident to NBC executives who reacted by firing Matt from the network.
Responding to Brooke’s scandalous claims, Matt denied wrongdoing of any sort. While acknowledging the affair, he insisted that everything between the two was consensual. In his own words,
“We engaged in a variety of sexual acts. We performed o*al sex on each other, we had va*inal sex, and we had a*al sex. Each act was mutual and completely consensual.”
NBC News also issued a statement condemning Matt’s appalling behavior.
Brooke Nevils’ Net Worth
Until her interview with Ronan Farrow’s for the said book, Brooke Nevils’ identity as well details of the accusations were kept hidden.
Following Matt Lauer’s firing, Brooke was placed on “medical leave.” Per Variety, NBC paid her a cool seven-figure sum as “hush money.”
No doubt, the stated payout from her former network solidified Brooke’s net worth.
Working for NBC, Brooke produced several shows including “Royal Wedding Watch,” “Headliners,” and “90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?”
