After several days of tough negotiations, Billy Bush is leaving NBC, effective immediately.

His exit is the result of the leaked 2005 "Access Hollywood" videotape showing Bush and Donald Trump making lewd and sexually aggressive remarks about women.

Bush, a brand new host of the "Today" show's 9 a.m. hour, never returned to the show after the tape came out on October 7. He apologized for his conduct in a statement that day.

In a CNN interview scheduled to air at 8 p.m. ET, Melania Trump blamed her husband's remarks on Bush, saying the television host had egged him on.
