Billy Bush will reportedly pocket millions for leaving the 'Today' show


Billy Bush, the former Access Hollywood co-host who was caught on tape making sexually graphic conversation with Donald Trump, is likely exiting NBC over the scandal, stepping down as host of the "Today" show's 9 a.m. hour. 

But don't feel too bad for Bush. NBC is about to pay him millions of dollars for leaving their network, according to CNN

That being said, how many millions is up for debate at the moment. 

Bush's exit is likely to be formally announced on Monday.

Some reports have pegged Bush's severance at around $10 million, but Bush's lawyer, Marshall Grossman, said that's untrue. 

"There are news reports that a $10 million settlement has been reached between Billy Bush and NBC. That report is false," said Grossman in a statement. 

The New York Daily News then reported that Bush would receive $9 million. 

Grossman also said that the negotiations over a lump sum keep the two parties from suing.

Some online see the irony in this situation.
