Matt Lauer may be gone from NBC, but a very, very large paycheque could still be coming his way. According to the New York Post's Page Six, Matt's lawyers are trying to get him a $30 million payout.

Many TV contracts contain moral clauses, and it's likely that Matt's did, given that he was such a huge on-air talent.

Another TV insider said, "There is no way Matt is getting paid. There has been an irrevocable breach of Matt's contract, there is a moral clause that says if he brings the company into disrepute — which he clearly has — NBC can terminate his employment immediately without pay and they do not have to pay out his contract."

The veteran newsman's demise has been incredibly fast. On Nov. 29, NBC announced that he had been fired over sexual misconduct allegations, and Andrew Lack, the NBC News president, said in a memo, "We were also presented with reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident."
