Former “Today” show co-host Ann Curry said Wednesday that she believes the woman accusing her former TV colleague, Matt Lauer, of rape.
“Brooke Nevils is a credible young woman of good character. She came to NBC News an eager and guileless 20-something brimming with talent,” Curry tweeted — the day after it surfaced for the first time publicly that Nevils was Lauer’s accuser.
“I believe she is telling the truth,” Curry added of Nevils, who told her story to Ronan Farrow in his explosive new tome, “Catch and Kill.”
“And it breaks my heart,” Curry said.
