David Duchovny, the recently rehabbed Californication and X-Files star, is suing over allegations of an affair. See photos and video of David Duchovny below.
David Duchovny is fiilng a lawsuit against the Mail on Sunday for alleging that he had an affair with his Hungarian tennis instructor, Edit Pakay. Duchovny’s attorney, Larry Stein, says he “never had a romantic or sexual relationship” with the former tennis star.
The Mail originally reported that Pakay and Duchovny had a relationship, and when pressed further about the nature of their relationship, if it was sexual, 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.”
Since this story, however, Edit had begun to deny the affair. She told E! News:
“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.”
Duchovny’s lawyer Stein said that Pakay had met with him personally and told him that she had never had a “sexual or romantic relationship with David.”
Just prior to filing the suit, Stein also said that Caroline Graham from the Mail contacted him before they ran the story asking for a comment. Stein said “I advised her that it was false and not to run with it, and she went ahead with it anyway.”
Stein also told E! News that Edit signed a declaration under penalty of perjury that stated:
“[I do] not have romantic feelings toward him and, based on our interactions, I believe that David Duchovny does not have romantic feelings toward me. The last time that I met up with David Duchovny was almost a year ago, in November 2007, when we made plans to play tennis. His personal trainer was also with us. Since November 2007, I have not seen David Duchovny, other than running into him briefly at the gym in March 2008 where he was working out.”
Looks like things are really getting dicey in the divorce between David Duchovny and Tea Leoni! Sad, as they have two children together. Hopefully things will get ironed out soon.
