Billy Bush's Wife Calls It QuitsJuly 14, 2018 4:28pm

The wife of Billy Bush has filed for divorce after separating from the former Today co-anchor last September, TMZ reports. Sydney Davis cited irreconcilable differences and asked for primary physical custody and joint legal custody of two of their children.

The couple's separation came a year after the Access Hollywood audio recording emerged of Bush laughing when Donald Trump boasted about assaulting women, People recalls.

The Today show immediately fired Bush, who apparently took it hard: "I was ashamed and embarrassed," said Bush. "I was a happy-go-lucky guy. Everything is going great and I was like, 'Hey, this is awesome!' And then, kaboom."

Bush said his marriage had run into "difficulties" before he became a Today co-host in 2016, but he hoped it would survive.

"We got married young and had our first child right away," he said at the time. "We're taking a step back. We get to explore and take our time. She's been so awesome through everything. I love her very much."
