According to a report from The Blast, Billy Bush, 47, is officially divorced from his estranged wife, Sydney Davis. The judge presiding over the case authorized the settlement package yesterday after it was filed by both parties’ attornies.
It was back in July of 2018 when Davis filed for divorce after being separated from Billy for approximately one year. Billy and Davis were married for two decades.
The news of their separation comes approximately three years after the Donald Trump Access Hollywood tape was leaked in which the president stated the now-infamous line, “grab ’em by the p*ssy.”
The leaked recording actually cost Billy his job on the Today show on which he formerly was the anchor. An insider who spoke with Page Six at the time claimed that Davids was “10,000% out of there,” adding that she and Billy were definitely over, and the source emphasized that Billy “wasn’t a victim.”
Another insider who spoke with the outlet explained that Billy and Sydney had tried to make it work for twenty years, and while there were many ups and downs, like all marriages, they had to finally call it quits due to irreconcilable differences.
Sydney and Billy have three children together, Lillie, Mary, and Josie, who are 13, 17, and 19, respectively. While the insider claimed that Billy wasn’t the “victim” in the case, some people on social media stood up for the ex-Today show host, stating that his job at the time depended on him being nice to Trump.
Regardless of whether he should assume some of the responsibility or not, he lost his job but has since found employment on the aforementioned Extra Extra show. It was back in late 2016 when the Access Hollywood tape from 2005 first leaked.
The then-presidential candidate could be heard saying to Billy Bush that on account of his hosting gig on the set of NBC’s The Apprentice, he had enough celebrity and influence to easily seduce women. That’s where the infamous “grab ’em by the p*ssy” remark stemmed from.
