Brooke Nevils, the NBC producer who claimed Matt Lauer anally raped her in a hotel room during the 2014 Sochi Olympics, believed the attack was her fault, according to sources
‘Like many victims, she was trying to clean up the original event in her mind, thinking if they could have a romantic relationship, then she could make this event less traumatic,’ they added.
Another source said that Nevils did consider the sexual relationship they had after the alleged attack as ‘consensual’.
Brooke Nevils agreed to be named in Ronan Farrow’s new book where she tells how Matt Lauer ‘anally raped’ her in 2014. Lauer is shown at the 2014 Olympic Games
‘But when the Weinstein scandal erupted she knew she had to come forward,’ they said.
In 2017, Nevils reported Lauer for allegedly sexually assaulting her one night during the Olympics and it was her allegation that led to him being fired.
It was reported at the time but now, Nevils has agreed to be named and is speaking on the record to share more details of the alleged rape in Ronan Farrow’s new book, Catch and Kill.
She claimed that Lauer – who was married at the time – pushed her onto a bed and had anal sex with her despite her telling him she did not want to after a night of drinking in Sochi.
She said they were in his hotel room and he was wearing boxers and a t-shirt.
Among other things, she said she ‘wept silently into a pillow’ while he had sex with her and that it ‘hurt’.
Lauer hit back in a three-page, 1,400 word response on Wednesday, saying that while they did have anal sex, it was consensual.
He went into graphic detail about the Sochi incident and described others – including having sex in his Today dressing room – and called Nevils a ‘willing partner’.
‘It is categorically false, ignores the facts, and defies common sense,’ he said of the rape allegation.
‘I had an extramarital affair with Brooke Nevils in 2014. It began when she came to my hotel room very late one night in Sochi, Russia. We engaged in a variety of sexual acts. We performed oral sex on each other, we had vaginal sex, and we had anal sex.
‘Each act was mutual and completely consensual,’ he said.
Lauer released a three page, 1,400 word letter on Wednesday to defend himself
