The statement reads: “Megyn Kelly TODAY is not returning. Next week, the 9 a.m. hour will be hosted by other TODAY co-anchors.”

After the fallout from her comments about blackface (video) and Halloween costumes, the former Fox News host has not only given up her Today Show gig, but multiple reports say she the network is negotiating her exit from NBC.

Kelly, no stranger to controversy, is said to have a “no break” clause in her roughly $69 million contract, according to Daily Mail, which first broke the news of Kelly’s possible departure. A settlement could also be in the works.
