Megyn Kelly has officially split with NBC after months of negotiating, the network announced Friday night. “The parties have resolved their differences, and Megyn Kelly is no longer an employee of NBC,” an NBC News statement said.
Kelly was about halfway through a three-year deal for a total of $69 million. She will collect the remaining money at around $30 million. NBC announced on Oct. 26 that Kelly’s show would not return after a controversial “blackface” remark. Since the announcement, her status had been in limbo as lawyers worked out the details of the breakup.
