When David Duchovny and Tea Leoni first separated back in 2008 it was revealed that he was a serial cheating sex addict. He was working on the set of Californication and couldn’t keep his fingers out of that proverbial cookie jar. His cheating followed by a stint in a facility for sex addiction were well documented but apparently David wasn’t the only one cheating. According to the Sept. 1st print edition of GLOBE Magazine Tea was not only having a fling with then-costar Billy Bob Thornton, but she ditched her kids to follow his band across the country!
Sources say that after David found racy messages from Billy Bob on Tea’s phone it was a game changer for the couple. They were both dishonest and doing things that would ultimately lead to their divorce. Ultimately they split and reconciled twice in the last six years before deciding that it really wasn’t going to work. Somehow David managed to fly below the radar way back in June and file for divorce.
While David ultimately admitted to cheating with various women it was just sex, whatever Tea had going with Billy Bob resembled more of a relationship and it’s something that David was never really able to get past. It no doubt played a huge part in this couple eventually pulling the plug and admitting marital defeat. They also grew apart for sure.
The GLOBE article doesn’t delve into Gillian Anderson’s relationship with David Duchovny and so we won’t either in this article. But suffice it to say that the door is wide open at last for David and Gillian to go public with their romance.
