Celebrities are constantly in the public eye, and for many Massachusetts residents, the gossip surrounding their lives is a source of entertainment. Because many celebrities are constantly being filmed or photographed, it is easy for some of the things that they have said or done to come back to haunt them, and the constant media attention can put a strain on many celebrities careers and private lives. Billy Bush and his wife are at the beginning of what will likely be a high asset divorce, but unlike many other celebrities, the two still seem to care for one another.
Billy Bush’s wife, Sydney Davis, recently filed for divorce after nearly 20 years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. The couple had been separated for nearly a year before the divorce was filed. Davis has asked for spousal support from Bush. She has also asked for joint legal custody of their children but has requested that she be awarded primary physical custody of their two youngest children who are 17 and 13.
About a year before the couple separated, Bush was fired from his position at the Today show due to a scandal involving Donald Trump. This put an additional strain on Bush and Davis’s marriage. The couple had experienced difficulties in their marriage even before this and eventually decided that it would be best to take a step back and consider their options.
Celebrity divorces are sometimes depicted as explosive and incredibly strained. However, much like any other high asset divorce, it is possible for couples to communicate effectively and come to a mutually beneficial conclusion. Massachusetts residents who are considering divorce could benefit from speaking with an attorney in their area.
