Natalie Morales and Matt Lauer say they still aren't sleeping together.

Rumors started swirling that an "inappropriate relationship" between the two caused Morales to leave her gig at the "Today" show to head out West.

Morales is denying that. She told Page Six: "There is absolutely no truth to this completely absurd story. It is damaging, hurtful and extremely sexist."

Lauer echoed those thoughts, telling the outlet, "Every aspect of this story is untrue, and it's frankly sad that someone would tell lies to harm everyone involved."

The pair are pros at shutting down the rumor mill at this point — in their combined nearly three decades of airtime at the "Today" show, their relationship has been closely watched by the tabloids

Morales' relocation was announced in May.

"We've got exciting news. This summer, Natalie Morales is moving to Los Angeles to become the 'Today' show's West Coast anchor," Lauer said.

In addition to that gig, Morales will host "Access Hollywood" and "Access Hollywood Live" and contribute to "Dateline" segments.

Morales' husband and sons are expected to make the move with her. 

"I think we're looking forward to it. It'll be a good change of pace, good lifestyle change," Morales said.
