Just one day after it was announced that he was fired from the Today show, Matt Lauer was out and about in East Hampton, New York, where his family resides.
Dressed in a navy blue sweater, jeans, brown boots and dark sunglasses, the 59-year-old newsman was seen getting out of his Jeep to meet with a man in a gray suit.
After hugging the gentleman, Lauer handed him a piece of paper before getting back into his vehicle and driving off. An eyewitness tells ET that the TV personality appeared “sad and sheepish” and “did not look happy” during the exchange.
The man in the suit is apparently criminal defense attorney Eddie Burke, Jr. According to his law firm's website, Burke and his associates have "been involved in high profile cases as well as several high verdict negligence cases that have been the topic of articles and discussions in national media."
