The completion of Megyn Kelly & # 39; s NBC News was completed last week after months of difficult negotiations about what she can now say about her – former bosses and colleagues, so it was reported.
According to the terms of her $ 30 million severance pay with the Peacock Network, Kelly will not be allowed to dirty over what happened behind the scenes at 30 Rockefeller Plaza.
NBC management insisted in discussions with Kelly that it signed the non-disparagement clause in exchange for receiving the full sum of the original $ 69 million contract it had signed with the network in the summer of 2017, according to Page Six.
An NBC source told on page six that Kelly has a lot to say about her former colleagues, who reportedly resented the former Fox News host for the huge salary she was pulling down.

& # 39; When the salary of Megyn was made public, the knives were out, & # 39; said the source.
& # 39; Other network talent demanded an increase equal to that of Megyn, and was not happy to & # 39; no & # 39; to be told. & # 39;
The resentment towards Kelly of her colleagues was evident from the fact that she had never been invited to serve as substitute host for one of the TODAY show stars during the main broadcast from 7:00 am to 9:00 am, according to Page Six.
Kelly was also left behind at some of the biggest events on the network, including the Winter Olympics in South Korea.

She was also not asked to register Lester Holt on the NBC Nightly News or to appear in the broadcast with the lighting of the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center.
The source also said that Kelly never had a chance because she was hired by NBC News chief Andy Lack to do a job for which she was unsuitable.
In many ways, Megyn was founded by Andy Lack to fail & # 39 ;, said the source.
& # 39; A warm and fuzzy show was never good for her. & # 39;
Kelly's relationship with the network remained downhill after she made on-air reactions that criticized her bosses.
Last September, she called for an external law firm to investigate the network on Ronan Farrow's report on the allegations against Harvey Weinstein.
Farrow has long asserted that NBC blocked him from broadcasting his reports, which he eventually took to the New Yorker magazine. Farrow won the Pulitzer Prize for his work at Weinstein.
In October, Kelly upset NBC brass when she said she doubted Matt Lauer, the former host of TODAY, could make a comeback because, I know too much [about Lauer] that others do not know. & # 39;
These comments apparently motivated NBC executives to do what they could to convince Kelly to remain silent.
& # 39; Look what she could say when she was in the building, imagine what she would like to say when she is released & # 39 ;, told an NBC insider on Page Six.
Kelly was reportedly the subject of jealousy in the network because of her salary. The animus to her was such that she was never invited to substitute for one of TODAY's hosts. From left: Hoda Kotb, Savannah Guthrie, Kelly, Al Roker and Dylan Dreyer last January
While Kelly walked away with $ 69 million, NBC is apparently a happier place now that she's gone.
An insider from the network told Page Six: It looks like euphoria after the break at 30 Rock.
& # 39; There is a great team in place, ratings have drawn double digits and the audience reacts enthusiastically.
& # 39; Everybody is happy that he has converted a page in the new year. & # 39;
When Kelly first appeared on the network in the summer of 2017, she organized a one-hour news magazine called Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly.
But bad ratings and public reactions to a controversial interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones have doomed the show.
Kelly then tried her hand in an Oprah-style talk show with a studio audience. This show would be the third hour of the TODAY show.
But that experiment also failed because of the low audience.
Kelly reportedly killed her bosses in September when she called for an independent law firm to investigate the network for her treatment of Ronan Farrow's (left) coverage of the Harvey Weinstein (right) accusations
Kelly was finally pulled out of the air after her remarks approved the use of blackface by whites on Halloween.
Kelly made a tearful apology for viewers who followed her Blackface comments, but it turned out to be her last appearance on NBC News.
NBC says that in the third hour of TODAY it will be replaced by anchors Craig Melvin, Al Roker, Dylan Dreyer and Sheinelle Jones.
Kelly has indicated that she wants to return to television in time for the 2020 elections.
Kelly smiled Thursday night while she was having dinner with her husband, Doug Brunt, in New York City.
To the question of photographers whether they would make a comeback on TV this year, she replied: "You will definitely see me again. & # 39;
NBC would not comment on Friday whether the divorce agreement allows her to write about her experiences on the network.
There is no non-competition clause, which means that Kelly is free to search for other television work if she wants to.
