FORMER US Today show host Matt Lauer and his wife have reportedly stepped out without their wedding rings.

The New York Post reports that Annette Roque, 52, was photographed jewellery-free overnight as she visited a grocery store in the Hamptons.

The Dutch-born mother-of-three was spotted not wearing her wedding ring as she dropped off her children at school.

Ms Roque’s father, Henri, 76, said, “Everybody feels betrayed” after the sexual misconduct claims against Lauer.

“I have no words for her husband. What he has done is bad,” he told the Daily Mail from his home in the Netherlands. “She is not going to stay with him and work it out. They are not together trying to work it out.”

Lauer, who was fired from the Today show last week, has been married to Ms Roque since 1998 and the pair has three children together.

He was spotted driving one of the kids to school in Sag Harbor on Monday — with his own wedding ring still firmly on his finger. However, this morning he was seen in the same neighbourhood without the ring.

Mr Roque denied that his daughter had fled to Europe.

Ms Roque previously filed for divorce from Lauer in 2006 but dropped the case.
