The internets is abuzz with the rumor that Matt Lauer used to get it on with Whitney Houston's step sister Alexis. Lauer claims this is absolutely not true

In an interview from France, where he is covering the Cannes Film Festival for Today, Lauer told People: "I am living in my apartment with Annette and my children as a family and a couple. I have never moved out. I am not moving out. There is no truth to that."

Annette Lauer says in a separate interview: "Out of self respect, I want to stand up for our family and protect them." The Lauers have three young children together - Jack, 8, and Romy, 6 and Thijs, 2.

Lauer, who has been dogged by stories of infidelity – and whose wife briefly filed for divorce in 2006 – acknowledges the couple has had rough patches. "Have we had a completely perfect, easy marriage? No. But the stories you've read over the years are not true. I don't think we're any different than any married couple that's been together for 12 years," he adds. "The accusations [of infidelity] are ridiculous and I'm not going to [dignify] them with an answer. It's not true."
