Meet Edit Pakay, a former tennis player turned tennis coach. She is rumored to be having an affair with David Duchovny, but in an update to this story they both deny it. Read more about the story, plus photos, below.
According to the Daily Mail, Edit Pakay, a former tennis player turned tennis coach insinuated an affair with recently released “sexually addicted” rehabbed David Duchovny. She told the Daily Mail that she and Duchovny have a very close relationship. When asked if their relationship is a “sexual affair”, she said:
‘I don’t want to say anything that might hurt David. I am not going to deny it. I don’t know what our relationship means to him.’
The two supposedly met last year at the Malibu Racquet Club, where a source (one of Pakay’s friends) told the Daily Mail that she was immediately smitten with Duchovny. A friend claimed that Duchovny told Edit that he was going to leave his wife Tea Leoni for her. Duchovny and Leoni announced their separation earlier this week.
As an update to this story, Edit Pakay and David are both denying any sexual relationship. Here is the latest quote:
“Yeah, we played tennis and we were playing partners and friends…There is no romance, and we are just friends. No love, nothing. That is all I have to say.”
In fact, Mr. Duchovny may be suing the Daily Mail for the story according to his lawyer.
David’s lawyer turned around and said his client will be launching legal action over the article because he “never had a romantic or sexual relationship with her.”
The Daily Mail has since removed their original article so they do not seem to be standing by the story.
As a biography, Edit Pakay was born on September 21, 1980 in Hungary, so her age is 28. She started playing tennis when she was six years old, and was a junior tennis champ by the time she was 15. She has even played against a younger Anna Kournikova. She graduated in 1999 from Bundez Yosief High School in Budapest, Hungary. She moved to the United States to attend Loyola Marymount University on a tennis scholarship instead of going pro. She picked Loyola because the head coach was Hungarian and she would not feel alone. When she graduated from the university, she made the decision not to turn professional. She became a real estate agent and was playing tennis just for fun. Soon people wanted to take lessons from her, including David Duchovny.
