The morning news world is still grappling with the news that longtime Today show anchor Matt Lauer was swiftly fired for “inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace.” However, his former co-anchor Katie Couric spilled some troubling tea about Lauer’s behavior way back in 2012.

In light of the Lauer’s firing and alleged behavior, a clip of Couric revealing he would often “pinch her ass” has resurfaced. Couric appeared on Watch What Happens Live! with Andy Cohen in 2012 and was playing the fan-favorite game “Plead the Fifth.” She was asked what was Lauer’s most annoying habit.

“He pinches me on the ass a lot,” she answered with a slight grimace followed by a half smile. “Wow! I wouldn’t have a problem with that,” Cohen joked.

Couric and Lauer served as the official Today anchors for 11 years, with Couric leaving the show in 2006.

Shortly after Couric’s 2012 clip resurfaced, a second video leaked. The 2006 clip shows Lauer making a lewd comment to co-anchor Meredith Vieira. “Keep bending over like that. It’s a nice view,” he said as Vieira was getting mic’d up.
