One year after being fired by the "Today" show, Matt Lauer is not in a happy place, according to a report.

People magazine, quoting an unnamed source, said the disgraced TV host, who was ousted amid allegations of sexual misconduct, is "not doing well."

"It has been hard for him," the source reportedly told the outlet. "He went from being a super-busy person to having nothing but time on his hands."

Lauer is living in a guest house on his Hamptons estate on Long Island and has been seen riding a lawn mower. He is said to be focused on rebuilding his relationship with his children.

"He's trying to get by putting all his energy into his kids," the magazine reported.

He is still negotiating divorce terms with his estranged wife, Annette, who reportedly could receive a settlement of up to $20 million.

The former journalist is not dating, the magazine said, and has no plans to return to television.

"He doesn't sit around thinking about a comeback," People quoted the source as saying.
