"In light of continuous speculation over the lives and marriage of Tea Leoni and David Duchovny, the couple has confirmed that they have in fact been separated for several months," People magazine quoted a statement by Duchovny, as stating.
"The couple had hoped to keep this separation private for the sake of their children," the statement added.
The Evolution actor has two kids with Leoni Madelaine West, 9, and son Kyd, 6. The actor voluntarily entered rehab last summer 'for the treatment of sex addiction,' he said in a statement issued in August. The separation statement was released by reps Annett Wolf and Evelyn Karamanos.
