Matt Lauer and his wife Annette Roque are really close to being ex-married, and divorce proceedings have reportedly intensified.

A source told Us Weekly that Lauer is ā€œgoing to be forking out around $50 million in a settlementā€ and that ā€œMatt is furious he is essentially handing over half of his net worth to Annette.ā€ According to the source, that price tag includes ā€œthe horse farmā€ (good to know thereā€™s only one, otherwise wouldnā€™t know which horse farm this is referring to), their current home, and a one-time payment of $25 million.

And that will be that, ā€œno chid or spousal support and they will split the costs for their kids.ā€

In November, Lauer was fired from NBC, where heā€™d been a top news anchor, over a sexual misconduct allegation. Not long after, it was reported that Roque had initiated divorce proceedings.

Meanwhile, Iā€™m just mad these people have so much money!
