A new tell-all book by Ronan Farrow allegedly contains new claims about sexual harassment of multiple women against former Today Show anchor Matt Lauer.
An insider told the New York Post that & # 39; a number of women with new claims & # 39; spoke to Farrow about Lauer, who was fired by NBC in November 2017 amid allegations that he had sexually harassed a trainee at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.
& # 39; These survivors have bravely made the decision to come forward on their own terms in the context of the reporting of this book, & # 39; said the source.
Lauer hired a team of lawyers before the release of & # 39; Catch and Kill & # 39; on October 15, the Post reported, referring to an informant who said that the damaged anchor and his team had the opportunity to check and comment on the book.

Little, Brown, and Company publishers declined to comment, but said they were extremely proud of the important reporting in & # 39; Catch and Kill & # 39 ;, which has been carefully checked for facts and screened & # 39 ;.
Farrow won a Pulitzer prize for his coverage of the extensive disguise of Harvey Weinstein's sexual misconduct at the forefront of the # MeToo movement two years ago.
The upcoming book will be marketed as & # 39; the story of the women who risk everything to reveal the truth & # 39; with details on & # 39; surveillance and intimidation deployed by rich and connected men to threaten journalists, evade responsibility, and silence abusive victims, "said Little, Brown and Company.
Farrow & # 39; s book & # 39; Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies and a Conspiracy to Predators & # 39; is scheduled for release on October 15
In addition to the new prosecutors, Farrow reportedly also spoke to the woman whose charges against Lauer led to his resignation in 2017.
The original prosecutor, who had worked as an assistant to Meredith Vieira before reaching the rank of Today and became a producer, claimed to have had a month-long affair with Lauer starting at the 2014 Olympic Games.
Lauer was fired from his $ 25 million a year post on Today hours after the woman informed NBC executives of the affair. Her lawyer claimed that there was a & # 39; absence of permission & # 39; was in the relationship.
The woman is no longer working at NBC and earlier this year reports emerged that she was shopping a significant memoir about the ordeal.
At least four other women emerged in the wake of Lauer & # 39; s resignation with their own allegations of sexual harassment.
A woman told the Washington Post that the anchor had uncovered himself in his office and asked her to touch it.
A second said she had sex with Lauer in the middle of the workday and a third claimed he had given her a sex toy.
Former production assistant Addie Zinone claimed that in 2000 she had a difficult but consensual relationship with Lauer. She was the only prosecutor who publicly identified himself.
Lauer declined to comment on allegations of misconduct and claimed in April 2018 that he wanted to & # 39; protect & # 39; against & # 39; shame & # 39 ;.
He and his wife Annette Roque divorced in the aftermath of the allegations and completed their divorce earlier this month.
The couple had been together for over 20 years and shared three children – son Jack, 18, daughter Romy, 15 and son Thijs, 12.
