Billy Bush, who was heard on a 2005 tape joking with Donald Trump as the future presdient made graphic sexual jokes, is married to Sydney Davis Bush. The couple have been married since April 1998 and are parents to three daughters.

Bush was a Today Show anchor, but reached a settlement with NBC and was fired by NBC, due to his role in the 2005 tape. Us Weekly reported that Bush was “devastated and crying” when the tape leaked and is worried that his career is over.

“I am deeply grateful for the conversations I’ve had with my daughters, and for all of the support from family, friends and colleagues. I look forward to what lies ahead,” Bush said in a statement on October 17.

In a May 2017 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, his first since being fired, Bush said he’s planning a comeback. Despite tabloid rumors of trouble between the couple, Bush and Sydney are still together.

“My wife, Sydney, knows the environment and the atmosphere I was in at the time, and she knows very well the person she married,” Bush told the Hollywood Reporter. “She has been very supportive from the very beginning.”

Bush is the nephew of President George H.W. Bush and cousin to President George W. Bush.

Here is a look at Davis and her life with Bush.

Davis and Bush have been married for 18 years. They tied the knot on April 4, 1998. When the couple lived in Los Angeles, Bush was able to spend time with the family because Access Hollywood didn’t have crazy work hours.

“I don’t live the Hollywood after hours life, I choose the family—always have. That said, all along I have taken the necessary boy’s’ trip skiing or golfing and couple’s getaway to fill the selfish and relationship needs,” Bush told VUE earlier this year.

Davis’ father is Clifford Perry Davis. She has an aunt named Carol Anne Davis. Her uncle, David Ragland Davis, died in October 2011.

5. Bush Said He’s ‘Embarrassed’ by His Comments in the 2005 Tape With Donald Trump

Bush told The Hollywood Reporter that he is “embarrassed and ashamed” by the 2005 tape with Donald Trump that was recorded during filming of an Access Hollywood episode.

“Obviously I’m embarrassed and ashamed. It’s no excuse, but this happened eleven years ago – I was younger, less mature, and acted foolishly in playing along. I’m very sorry,” Bush told THR.

Access Hollywood aired its own story about the tape after it was leaked to the Washington Post.

In the tape, Trump tells Bush about an attempt to have sex with a woman even though she was married. Trump would also have been married to Melania at the time.

“Your girl’s hot as s—, in the purple… Yes! The Donald has scored!… Oh, my man,” Bush is heard telling Trump. Bush laughed throughout the tape.

“This was locker room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago. Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course – not even close,” Trump said in a statement after the tape’s release. “I apologize if anyone was offended.”

At the time the tape was made, Bush was already a father of three. The couple’s youngest daughter is now 11 years old.

On his Facebook post, people have left countless negative messages. Many are disappointed that a man with a wife of nearly two decades and three daughters would act that way.

“Just saw the video with you and Donald Trump. You’re as scummy as he is. After everything the two of you said and then you ask the woman to hug Donald and then hug you. You are sickening! You’re just as big as a pig and scumbag as trump is,” one person wrote to Bush.

According to a rumor from Radar Online, Davis was “devastated” by the 2005 tape. “Sydney was so upset and devastated when she heard the tape,” a source told the site.

Another rumor from Page Six claims that Sydney Bush was furious with her husband. Here is what an NBC insider told Page Six:

Billy Bush’s wife, Sydney Davis, was furious about the tape. Not just because of what was said, but because he was stupid enough to put himself in that position. It wasn’t just the . . . vile talk, it’s because he insisted the woman hug him and Trump. It was creepy. She was so furious that she refused to speak with him for a while — and she’s still furious. They are having marriage problems. He didn’t apologize to her for the embarrassment he caused in his statement. And she hasn’t released a statement at all.

However, in his new Hollywood Reporter interview, Bush said his wife was “very supportive from the very beginning” of the scandal.

  1. This is how real men think of women. Homos think of other men like this
    Lesbos think of women like this.so get over it.😃

      • Clearly Bush’s comments were inappropriate but I guess it is then okay to call someone names and to malign them personally since they said something inappropriate? I love how behavior today falls into a “all bets are off” and I can say anything I want about you if you say something I find objectionable or politically incorrect.

  2. That wasn’t the real me. I was younger. I made a wrong choice.
    No, Billy, basically you’re just another A*hole. In this case, an overpaid A*hole with a big family name.
    It would be sweet if your wife divorces you and takes you to the cleaners.

  3. Billy Bush …”I was too young, and immature” Really? Bill Bush was 32 years old when he and Trump had their Entertainment Tonight bus session. He had been married for 5 years. Billy, who has 3 daughters, his eldest daughter was 5 years old at the time of the event. Billy continues to brag, now off of the bus, insinuating he has an “open marriage” in some form of a Hall pass. Obviously Trump thought he had the same and said he would and did act on it. Birds sharing feathers.

  4. did anyone ever hear of BLACKMAIL???

    WHERE and WHO did and kept this tape????

    GOP, that’s why i haven’t voted for years, but i will still vote for trump…

    Did anyone ever hear of JFK? “F” is the middle initial same letter starts lots of words

    But what kind of a president was he? whoremonger kind

    • Leo JFK had the consent of Marilyn Monroe and any other female he touched what Trump is saying he feels that because he is a star he can do whatever he wants to any woman he wants and get away with it because he is a star….WRONG…

      • Do you not see the irony of what you just said? JFK, Clinton and numerous others use the exact reasoning and guess what? It is true and only becuase the stupid women themselves let them do it. These women are NOT being forced into having sex, they do it freely for whatever reasons they use to make themselves feel like it’s worth it. There are many reasons they do it but don’t kid yourself, nne of them were forced. These women should be ashamed that their self esteem is so low they have to stoop to committing sex acts to gain whatever it is they crave (fame? career advancement? recognition? a brief feeling of power? who knows what?) I am a woman and I blame the women in this. Men can easily read you and know exactly how far they can take it with you. Women can read you too and know exactly what kind of person you are. Grow up and develop some self respect.

    • Leo – go live in a third world country where the political opponent gets thrown in prison. This is the USA. Act like you live in it.

  5. President Bush, Sr is the uncle to Billy Bush…And we all know that the Bush family hates Trump because Jeb Bush lost in the primary election to Donald Trump…

    The Bush Family should be the ones shamed for this stunt…How about putting Jenna’s wardrobe malfunction the night she was dancing with her dad at the inauguration and she exposed her tit to the public…I am sur we were all disgusted at that too…

  6. Luv Billy bush and still do. This story should not be about him. .if he is fired from NBC I will not watch. He was a younger man clearly Fascinated to interview trump. He laughed at comments, but in my opinion it was a nervous laugh, not knowing what to say. Leave him alone

    • Totally agree. His job was to humor and agree with celebrities. That is how he got the big interviews. I do not believe his career should be ruined because of this.

    • Yes, sorry Billy got caught up in this mess. Its about The Donald. I think his laughing Billy, was nervous energy and some of his comments other than laugheing was made as a play along) Still, I don’t like how Billing knowingly told the subject of conversation to to give Trump a hug and him too. Now that was inexcusable.

  7. There is a sense of “good ol’ boys” when men are socializing in a private manner. the stupidest thing that these men did was to allow it to be recorded! men go around puffing out their chests to impress each other women do the same and how! I have never heard such nasty talk as women when they think they’re alone! a sailor would blush!

  8. S H says billy was a very big part of why the today show don’t think he should be hurt for this. He let out some secrets about trump people should know be for they vote. I think we should thank him not firer him.

    • This is such a farse . Outraged about this? How about all the gross lyrics of the elite entertainers?
      Sure is gross but it was private while the music industry is celebrated via the Grammys where the vulgarity is astonishing . This is one more way for the media to destroy Trump

  9. Billy
    Just for the record associating yourself with Donald Trump was your first mistake. You need to first apologize to your wife and 3 daughters. Then to all of the woman who were offended. I found it extremely disgusting talk. It is by no means locker room talk.

    • I am really appauled by all of this. It’s just so wrong, not to mention degarding to woman everywhere. Both men were married at the time, it’s not funny at all. And, they both should feel for their families and their wife. I really doubt that they do at all. K8nd of sad, that Billy Bush will possibly loose his career. But, Trump will buy his way out of this mess. And, laugh it off, like it is no big deal at all. Because, he is a Big Star, and as far as I’m concerned a very big Ass too!

  10. I think it was not right to fired Billy over something that happen 11 years ago. I’m sure the people that fired him have made mistakes in there life. We are suppose to forgive.Who every gave that tape, was trying to discreat Trump to make him look bad and why save a tape for 11 years.Bring Billy back.He is very good at his job.

  11. I think it was not right to fired Billy over something that happen 11 years ago. I’m sure the people that fired him have made mistakes in there life.

  12. Im sorry fo Billy ,, what are you going to do when you are in the Company of a big bully ?? if you dont go along , then you will be chastised right then & there , and be the end of you , after something like that ,, you find ways to stay away from that person .

  13. The media is held to a higher standard , nbc can’t afford to have Somme before the pubic that can tarnish the network or ratings or possibly loose advertising dollars. Not saying it’s right but their policy.

  14. One bad decision does not make a person. This man has no negative story in his past. This should not ruin his life, he is being punished.

  15. The tape is leaked to bring down Trump (thereby helping Clinton …. who is endorsed by his cousin Bush 43rd president and uncle Bush 41st president) ….. then he loses his job and conveniently gets to sue the network for releasing a tape which was an illegally distributed recording ……………. Very convenient and profitable …………. and Very suspicious

  16. Has the cameraman and sound operator been blacklisted in the entertainment industry??? Who else was there that didn’t come forward at the time? Where is there punishment?

  17. I wish you well, Billy. You’re not running for an office that requires scrutiny of a person’s behavior both past & present. Keep positive thoughts & realize that it is what it is & your heading into a new path. Just remember that you will see light at the end of the tunnel.

  18. I think he should have apologized as he did…let’s move on…we all have done foolish things or said foolish things…just to look big in front of others…

  19. Billy Bush said many times on Access Hollywood that producers pushed him to be more outrageous. The show is tabloid journalism in a better suit. Now NBC claims they never knew or expected this behavior? They demanded it. Billy was just doing his job.

  20. How do you explain to your daughters when they come home and say they’ve had their a*s or crouch grabbed by some entitled D*CK?!!!
    What does he say? “Oh honey, I’m sure that nice guy just thought you were hot and you should NOT be offended or so uptight about it…”

    Billy Bush is going to have suffer more than just loosing his reputation and his job… It’s the look in his daughters eyes knowing what their father thinks of women…
