A proclamation of sexual attraction. A hand resting on the knee. A flirty text message.

The claim is included in "Catch and Kill," an upcoming book by Farrow that documents his reporting on movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and other prominent men who are accused of attacking and harassing women.
NBC News has not seen a copy of the book, slated to be released on Tuesday. Nevils has accused Lauer of raping her in a hotel room in Russia during the Sochi Olympics.
In a memo to NBC News employees on Wednesday, NBC News Chairman Andy Lack said that "some have questioned why we used the term 'sexual misconduct' to describe the reason for Lauer's firing in the days following" his termination from the company. The way it's been described by Ronan is accurate and the book backs it up. Lauer's lawyer, Libby Locke, said her client "did not have a single complaint brought to his attention until Nov.
Lauer has ly confirmed he had a sexual relationship with Nevils but claimed it was "completely consensual.
Nevils' accusation noted that the alleged behavior continued in the workplace after the Olympics. In a statement issued Wednesday, after Variety reported the allegations against Lauer after obtaining a copy of the book, NBC News said Lauer's conduct was "appalling, horrific, and reprehensible, as we said at the time. That's why he was fired within 24 hours of us first learning of the complaint. Our hearts break again for our colleague.
But in his interview Friday, Farrow rebutted the company's statements, claiming that he had spoken to senior executives who had been told about earlier incidents involving Lauer. This is years before this incident with Brooke Nevils and the firing.
I spoke to senior executives who were told about those earlier incidents," Farrow went on to claim, without identifying the employees in question. In the memo to staff members, Lack reiterated the findings of the company's investigation, which found that leadership and management were not aware of Lauer's alleged conduct prior to Nevils' meeting with human resources.
NBCUniversal said in May that a five-month internal investigation found no evidence that any NBC News or "Today" show leadership, human resources personnel or others in positions of authority were aware of allegations of sexual misconduct made by four women against Lauer before November Daniel Arkin is a reporter for NBC News who focuses on popular culture and the entertainment industry, particularly film and television.
