David Duchovny’s sexual indiscretion has once again come into question after new reports suggest his alleged internet porn habit was used as a cover for cheating on his wife.
The 48-year-old played down rumours he was unfaithful when he reportedly came clean over his internet porn habit after checking into rehab for sex addiction last week.
New reports from The National Enquirer allege the actor went into rehab because his wife, actress Tea Leoni, “finally caught him (cheating)”, prompting her to offer him an ultimatum to seek treatment or face a divorce.
A source tells the tabloid: “At first, Duchovny tried to lie his way out of trouble, but eventually was overwhelmed with guilt and confessed.”
And editors at Us Weekly have fuelled the allegations, adding reports that the actor “has a history of indiscretions”, including one alleged tryst with an extra on his TV show Californication.
Duchovny is currently checked into a 35-day course at the Meadows rehab center in Wickenburg, Arizona, where he has been visited by Leoni. She will miss the premiere of her forthcoming film Ghost Town at the Toronto Film Festival in Canada this week to be by the actor’s side.
Duchovny’s attorney, Larry Stein, has declined to address the reports, adding: “This is a private matter.”
