Matt Lauer is begging Katie Couric to let him know what to expect from Unexpected, her upcoming tell-all!

The disgraced TV sleaze — who was canned from Today in 2017 after a slew of sexual harassment claims — has desperately been trying to reform his shattered image, and insiders said he is terrified she will tear it all down with her tattling.

Matt has been blowing up Katie’s phone asking for an advance peek at her pages, said the tipster, but she’s told him “she’s in the early stages and can’t give him an outline yet” for the memoir that’s due out in 2021.

“That has Matt paralyzed with fear because he knows she received a $12 million advance for the book and the publisher is expecting a blockbuster!”

The mole mentioned Matt has lots of reasons to worry— Katie was his co-host for nine years and knows where all the bodies are buried!

“Katie doesn’t intend to give Matt a heads-up,” the source snitched. “Matt’s hoping to land a new TV gig but Katie could torpedo him by bringing his scandal back into the news!”

Matt did not respond to The National ENQUIRER’s request for comment.
