David Duchovny Enters Rehab For Sex Addiction

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.”

    Hmmm..how ironic. Did anyone ever see the movie “Trust The Man”… David Duchovony is in it and oddly enough–he plays a husband who has an affair and then decide he is going to attend a group dedicated to..what do ya know? SEX ADDICTS…. art imitating life, how bout that.
    it is good movie though if you haven’t seen it.

    Why should be any more ashamed than an alcohol or drug addict? The press would start rumours anyway so he might as well get it out in the open and then move on.

    You are so right. This has been known for years. It must have gotten worse. His new TV show is pretty sleazy and may have caused him to amp up his activity. Michael Douglas was treated for sex addiction and also Halle Berry’s ex. Charlie Sheen is also said to be this way.

    I don’t know that I would have told this but I imagine the Nat Enq since they buy medical info had the story and is about to print it.

    I hope I am wrong but I doubt the marriage will survive.

    ROTFLMAO! Ahhhhh….I see the years of rumors about DD’s little problem have finally caught up with him. I’m just shocked to hear he’s finally admitted to having a problem keeping it in his pants…

    Definitely TMI – I wonder if this means he’s a serial cheater or “just” a prn addict. Neither is a good thing. But we haven’t seen Tea with him for a while, now we know why. Kind of creepy that he resembles his character on “Californication” a little too much.

    so true lol 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.

    With all the money the porno business makes I am sure he is not the only one who enjoys watching people have sex. Maybe he was watching porn round the clock?

    DANA Says:

    A joke. The joke is on the tabloid press and they fell for it.

    Ahem, Jared. That means you,

    No way this completely uber educated upperclass PRIVATE couple would suddenly begin issuing press releases after12 years of silence. No way.

    Liz Says:

    Dana, you are an idiot.

    This couple is as far from private as you can get. I think their main topic of conversation in every interview is sex.

    And, so what if he is educated? There is probably something really scandalous about to come out and he made a preemptive strike.

    Oh God seriously? I don’t think a shrink or rehab can help you tame down your sex addiction! Anyways why the hell would you say this to the whole world? Damn.

    peach Says:

    What a time we live in!! It’s embarrassing to go to rehab for sex addiction and it’s Ok to go to rehab for drugs.

    He should have kept this private. Or lied about what he was going for.

    Jill Says:

    I can’t see why in the world he went public with this, unless he figured he’d beat the National Enquirer to it.

    I feel sorry for Tea and the kids.

    @ 20

    I agree with your comments about how society ‘masks’ it to seem normal – even ‘healthy and natural’ when nothing could be further from the truth! It’s great and inspiring that he is coming out of denial and getting help – that has to be a miserable way to life – so dehumanizing for all parties involved. He will get better! Best wishes David!

    GabriellA Says:

    Wow that’s crazy because he played the role of a married man with a sexual addiction in a film called Trust the Man that I just watched on HBO the other night. Billy Cudrup, Julianne Moore, and frumpy Maggie Gyllenhaal were in it as well. WOW I guess art does imitate life.

    LIZ is an idiot Says:

    LIZ #37

    You’re so correct. Why, every day, I wake up and there they are!!!


    Where will it end!! So many interviews! So many trips to Robertson to make sure the paps see their every move!! The IVY! Malibu Beach! Every single movie premiere! The wild parties!

    AH HA !The ruse of living far away n the hills and never going to ANY of the places were celebs are seen and photographed FOR 12 YEARS was all a RUSE!

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh, but NOW, LIZ is on the scene. Mere behavior and logic must be ignored, we have the mighty wise LIZ!

    Some of you are so dumb…I love the “he strikes me as a sex addict” and b.s. comments like that. If it said he checked himself in for OCD, you’d be saying…”he strikes me as an obsessive compulsive type..” Anyway, how smug. What’s ur addiction anyway? Personally, I’d totally do him as a sidenote. Anyway, he obviously got caught because men are as faithful as their options..Bill Maher said it first and he’s right. Time to redefine what’s allowed in a relationship you hetero types….or just keep people cheating behind their partner’s backs as almost always happens in every couple whether you like it or not. What’s the matter with a new partner here and there..if out in the open and done safely.. I say let him ****!

    didn’t he play a sex addict in the movie TRUST THE MAN? =)

    Liz Says:

    LOL, I think I struck a nerve with Dana.

    They don’t have to go to the Ivy. No one cares about them much in the mainstream anyway to stalk them. I’m talking about their interviews where TMI is a foreign concept to them. They like to talk about their sex lives. They are not a private couple.

    he did do the show on HBO called RED SHOE DIARY where he was having sooooo much sex!
