Billy Bush‘s wife Sydney Davis has filed for divorce, ending their marriage of nearly 20 years, according to E! News and TMZ. 

Davis filed legal documents to end their marriage in Los Angeles Superior Court citing irreconcilable differences, according to TMZ. The two have been separated since September, 11 months following the leak of the infamous “Access Hollywood” tapes featuring Bush and Donald Trump.

Davis is asking for joint legal and primary physical custody of two of their children —Lillie, 13, and Mary, 17 — according to TMZ. Josie, their oldest daughter, is 19.

Bush will get visitation time with the children, according to the documents. Davis is also seeking spousal support.

Bush’s representative did not respond to an email from USA TODAY.

The two were married in 1998. Davis has been a steadfast supporter since the fallout from the “Access Hollywood” tapes that featured the hot-mic tape 2005 discussion between Bush and Trump. The release prompted a firestorm before the 2016 presidential election.

Bush was let go from NBC’s “Today” show in Oct. 2016 as the tapes showed he encouraged Trump’s lewd talk about women.

Bush praised his wife’s support during his personal crisis in a 2017 interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

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

Following their 2017 separation, Bush’s publicist released the following statement:

“After almost 20 years of marriage, they have separated for the moment to evaluate their life together. They love each other and their children deeply and are committed to a bright future,”

Bush is the cousin of former president George W. Bush.
