Breaking news of sorts. X-Files star David Duchovny has checked himself into a rehab center. For sexual addiction. No, this isn't (as far as I know) promotion for the next season of Showtime's Emmy Nominated Californication, this is for real.
People.com was the first to report. "I have voluntarily entered a facility for the treatment of sex addiction. I ask for respect and privacy for my wife and children as we deal with this situation as a family," Duchovny said in his exclusive statement to the magazine.
This news comes as a shock from Duchovny who's been married to actress Téa Leoni for over ten years and with whom he has two children. The statment was delivered by his lawyer Stanton Stein and was later confirmed by his publicist Flo Grace to the Associated Press.
The new season of Californication begins September 28. I'm sure the irony of his character, a sex-obsessed writer, and this real life drama will not be lost on anyone in the coming weeks.
Best of luck David.
