Billy Bush Hires Steven Spielberg’s Lawyer in Battle Over NBC Ouster

Billy Bush isn’t messing around in his NBC fight: He just hired a big-time lawyer who’s repped Steven Spielberg and other Hollywood heavyweights.

Bush, who is officially on suspension from NBC’s “Today” after a lewd 2005 videotape leaked of him interviewing Donald Trump, has hired Marshall Grossman, a famed Los Angeles litigator known for handling celebrity problems as well as complex cases involving Apple Computer and other big corporate clients, according to a person close to the situation.

A call and email to Grossman were not immediately returned Thursday.

The move likely means that Bush isn’t going to go quietly in the battle over his job, where he pulled down a reported $3 million per year.
