According to very reliable sources close to Matt’s camp, he was reportedly carrying on an affair with Whitney Houston’s step sister Alexis Houston, who is a young singer-songwriter/producer.
Matt and Alexis met on the set of The Today Show when Alexis accompanied Dionne Warwick on-set back in October 2007 who sang "I Say A Little Prayer" for the winning couple of the show's annual wedding contest.
“There was some tension with Dionne and the producers before the show went live and Alexis smoothed out the drama, which caught Matt’s attention,” our source tells Hollyscoop EXCLUSIVELY.
That was the beginning of many set visits for Alexis. She would often attach herself to charities that Matt was involved in so they could spend some time together. “We all saw through it,” says our source. “Everyone on set knew about his affair.”
According to our source, in March 2008, Matt’s staff booked hotel and air accommodations for Alexis so she could accompany Matt to South Carolina. “They often stayed in the same hotel, but on different floors,” says our source. Alexis also accompanied Matt on a trip to Los Angeles that summer.
After almost a year, they had a fallout in late 2008/early 2009. “They ended the affair, but he tried to stay in touch,” says our source.
When Matt arrived in Vancouver for the 2010 Winter Olympics, he heard Alexis would be performing during the opening ceremonies at the Olympic Village.
Matt went through several publicists to get in touch with her. “He really made an effort to see her, but he wanted to see her privately,” added our source.
Matt and Annette have had their share of marital problems in the past. They filed for divorce back in 2006, but later reconciled. As the National Enquirer reported earlier today, Matt and his wife have reportedly been living apart for over two months and she stopped wearing her wedding ring. According to several reports, Matt is searching for a new apartment in New York.
