“Today” show host Matt Lauer is headed for divorce, the National Enquirer reports.

Lauer and his Dutch-born bride of 12 years, Annette, are reportedly living apart and have been for more than two months, ever since the former Boston newsman spent a string of “wild nights” in Vancouver covering the Winter Olympics, the tab says.

“I heard he and Annette are breaking up. I was not shocked to hear that but it’s very sad,” said Matt’s ex-wife, Nancy Alspaugh, who was married to Lauer when both were working in TV in Boston.

According to the Enquirer, Lauer moved out of the house after an “explosive” argument with Annette when he returned from Vancouver. The tab said the 52-year-old newsman had been going “wild” at various Canadian nightspots while in the Great White North and “caught the eye of two good-looking Canadian broadcasters.” Matt reportedly skipped Valentine’s Day celebrations with his wife and stayed there a little longer after completing his work.

Back in New York, Annette learned about her husband’s flirting with the two women from the wife of another “Today”staffer.

This isn’t the first split for the couple. They were briefly separated in 2006, when Annette, then pregnant with their third child, filed for divorce. However, she withdrew the divorce request a month later. The couple have three young children – Jack, 8, Romy, 6, and Thijs, 2.

An NBC source told the Chicago Sun-Times that Annette is “hostile to any woman who has a work relationship with Matt, with the exception of Meredith Vieira and Ann Curry.

Meanwhile, Lauer blasted the reports, claiming he is still living with his family. “I am living in my apartment with Annette and my children as a family and a couple,” he told People. “I have never moved out. I am not moving out. There is no truth to that.”

“Have we had a completely perfect, easy marriage? No. But the stories you’ve read over the years are not true,” Lauer said. “I don’t think we’re any different than any married couple that’s been together for 12 years.”
