Billy Bush’s wife Sydney Davis filed for divorce on Friday, ending their marriage of 20 years. Now, as the ousted news host gets ready to be a single father of three, has exclusively learned that he's "crippled" by the filing — and is blaming himself for "everything!”

In September 2017, less than a year after Bush lost his job at TODAY for lewd comments made on an infamous 2004 tape involving now President Donald Trump, Bush announced that he and Sydney were “taking a step back”.

He really didn’t see this coming and thought that their trial separation would make all the problems go away," a source told Radar. "He truly believed they were in the process of fixing things."

According to Los Angeles court documents obtained by Radar, Sydney is seeking primary physical custody and joint legal custody of daughters Mary, 17, and Lillie, 13. Josie, the couple’s eldest daughter, is an adult at 19.

In addition, Sydney is seeking spousal support.


However, since being fired from TODAY in 2016, Bush has not gotten any major on-camera gigs.

Instead, he has focused his time on his two-year-old liquor company, Beach Whiskey.

“Her request for spousal support makes him even more upset,” the source added. “She knows he is not making the kind of money that he used to."
