David Duchovny Enters Rehab For Sex Addiction


Californication star David Duchovny is currently at a rehabilitation center for sex addiction.

“I have voluntarily entered a facility for the treatment of sex addiction,” the former X-Files star’s lawyer Stanton “Larry” Stein tells People. “I ask for respect and privacy for my wife and children as we deal with this situation as a family.”

Duchovny, 48, has been married to actress Téa Leoni for over 10 years and have two children together–daughter Madelaine, 9, and son Kyd, 6.

The Californication premiere of season two is set for September 28, 2008. Duchovny plays womanizing writer Hank Moody on the Showtime series.

Back in May, Best Life reported, “There was the time [Duchovny] confessed to a reporter about his fascination with hotel porn (‘I like to watch other people —k’ was the exact quote) and rumors swirled that he was a sex addict.”

    This is sort of surprising. Before he was married rumors swirled that he would sleep with almost anything that moved. I wonder if he was cheating on his wife? How do they cure someone’s craving for sex?

    His wife can’t complain that he ignored her in the sack.

    What the fuckery? I don’t like this. Also, he looks like my old piano instructor.

    So I guess the song “David Duchovney..Why Dont You Love Me?” is a bit ironic?

    Seriously though……hes one of my favorite actors. It sucks that he had to make this be public…..weird. I dont know too many guys out there who arent addicted to porn in one way or another though. Strange addiction really. I’d rather just be an alcoholic and get sh!tfaced 24/7.

    oh noooo. I love David Duchovny and am a huge X-Files fan. I have the series on DVD and watch it every day! I can’t believe this, I did NOT see this coming.


    Hope him and his wife work things out, but this is just weird…

    He kinda strikes me a sex “addict”….Tea is one lucky woman.

    CLINIQUA Says:

    He may not have cheated — it sounds like he’s talking about his po rn addiction. He admitted to this years ago, before he was married, and before he even knew Tea Leoni.

    What I don’t get is why this stuff has to go public? Can’t you go into rehab andnot say what it’s for, I mean, damn.

    They’re pretty brave. because the tabloids are going to just be relentless, ditto the entertainment shows.

    This is not a joke. There are many sex addicts out there that are in complete denial. It’s worse than being a drug addict or alcoholic addict. And, nearly if not completely impossible to cure or control. So here’s what I say to this announcement: Good for him for admitting he has a problem (most sex addicts and antisocials live in complete denial justifying their addiction as merely being human or male). Sadly, though, he will not be cured as this illness can only be managed. But at least he has the balls (no pun intended) to ADMIT to it!

    This is so embarasing for his wife, I can’t even imagine.

    remember da truth Says:

    He wants privacy but he makes this announcement? No one would have known he was in rehab if he’d kept his mouth shut. He could have done this quietly and spared the humiliation for his family.

    What a schmuck. And not for having an addiction and doing something about it, but for not being respectful of his family. It’s one thing to love the fame and attention so much you announce you are a drug/alcohol addict and are going to rehab. But this is embarrassing for other people, too.

    Ha! In the X-Files, Mulder was obsessed with pornography too

    village Says:

    Well duh. This was so freakin’ obvious. It was written all over the bags under Tea’s eyes.

    I can’t believe he went for help.

    Good luck, Tea.

    AGREE NUMBER # 22…. Who would have known had he opened his big sexed mouth to a reporter? I also agree with the others that this was a joke of some kind, and almost laughed myself silly out of the chair. But then I thought why would a star of his calliber start a rumor like this or have someone create a media stunt like this? For what purpose? …………. This could have been handled alot more discreetly. I feel sorry now, for Tia and their children and the teasing that is almost envitably going to follow this ordeal…… NOW, maybe the paparazzi’s will leave them alone for some peace and let them heal.
