Gillian Anderson isn’t wasting any time. Just as news breaks that she’s split from her boyfriend of six years, Mark Griffiths, CDL has learned that she’s living with her X Files co-star David Duchovny in Los Angeles.
A source exclusively told CDL that David and Gillian have been in a serious relationship for some time now and she and her children are shacking up with the Californication actor. This is a long time coming for the pair whose chemistry on their hit show was always a source of tabloid conjecture. Gillian and David worked together from 1993 to 2002 and starred in the movie version in 2008. Although it seems every fan in the world wanted to get the two together, a relationship was never declared during filming.
Gillian and David have had their share of rocky romances. Anderson married twice and had one child with her first husband and two more with Griffiths. She did not have children with her second husband, Julian Ozanne. David married Tea Leoni in 1997 and the couple have two children. David and Tea split a couple times due to infidelity rumors on both sides and David eventually went to sex rehab in 2008. It was thought the rehab worked for the couple and they reconciled soon after but then split again. Although neither David nor Tea have declared anything, our source confirms that the two have been quietly divorced since 2009. The New York Post spotted him apartment hunting in NYC in May of this year adding credence to his single status.
If you need more evidence that Gillian and David are a couple look no further than an interview she gave to The Sunday Times Magazine just a couple weeks ago. It read:
I ask if she has a partner at the moment. Her answer is peculiar. “Um…yes…umm…umm…” There is a long pause. “Say yes,” she stutters finally.
Is this one we know about, I say, the father of the two youngest children, or a new one? “Umm, no, no… why do you ask me?” she counters. Earlier, we had been talking about her summer plans when she tells me that what really spells holiday for her is “four or five days with me and my girlfriends, no kids. That time with the girls is just divine, reading books, sitting in the sun, it’s just heaven”. I say that I wonder if she has a new partner because she hadn’t mentioned her chap in relation to the holiday plans. “But I’ve been doing those girlie holidays for the past three years,” she says. So she is still with the father of her two youngest children? “Yes, yes,” her eyes dart away, she shifts uncomfortably in her chair. It is clear that this topic is being closed down.
Odd answers, don’t you agree? And is this why Gillian keeps talking about her bisexuality, to keep the media off the trail? Do you think Gillian left Griffiths for David? It kind of sounds like it. It’s not like she’s just hanging at his place while she gets over her break up. The source says they are an item. Perhaps the time was just right for the couple. It seems like they were always in other relationships while they worked on the X Files together and now they’re both free to make it a go.
What do you make of the couple? Do you think David can put his sex addicted past aside to stay faithful? Is Gillian jumping into another serious relationship too quickly or was this just always meant to be?
