Kudos to David for going after the slimy, underhanded tabloid media. The Daily Mail has issued this apology to David and his family:
On October 19, an article about actor David Duchovny may have suggested he had an amorous relationship with a tennis coach, Edit Pakay.
We now accept this is inaccurate and Ms. Pakay and Mr. Duchovny are only friends who used to play tennis occasionally.
Their relationship went no further and was not a factor in Mr and Mrs Duchovny’s separation. We apologize to Ms. Pakay, Mr. Duchovny and to Mr. Duchovny’s family.
David Duchovny has opted to serve first.
The recently separated Californication star sued Britain’s Daily Mail for defamation Wednesday over the tabloid’s report last week that Duchovny cheated on his wife, Téa Leoni, with a tennis instructor.
The Mail went ahead and posted the item online despite being told “point blank” that the story was false and that the alleged object of this adulterous affection was “explicitly and specifically denying a romantic or sexual relationship with David Duchovny,” according to court documents filed today in Los Angeles Superior Court. (View the lawsuit.)
“By its intentional and reckless conduct, Daily Mail has caused substantial harm to Duchovny, in complete disregard of the truth and of even a semblance of journalistic integrity,” the suit states.
Though David Duchovny and Téa Leoni confirmed that they have been separated for several months, a source who knows the couple says they still appear close and friendly.
“They get along great together,” says a source in their New York City neighborhood.
“They are such a nice family, so down-to-earth,” the source adds. The family was seen together at the Czech Street Festival in Manhattan earlier this month.
Duchovny, 48, and Leoni, 42, were married in 1997. They have two children, daughter Madelaine West, 9, and son Kyd, 6.
Speaking to PEOPLE last week, before the separation announcement and following Duchovny’s release from rehab for sex addiction, Gossip Girl star Madchen Amick (who will appear on Duchovny’s Showtime series Californication later this season), told PEOPLE: “I know that his family is really important to him, and he always speaks fondly about them. The only hard part about doing the show [in California] is being away from them. But I know he really adores them.”
Duchovny is currently preparing for an upcoming starring role in The Joneses, also starring Demi Moore.

David Duchovny has checked out of a rehabilitation center for sex addiction, according to his lawyer, Stanton “Larry” Stein.
“David is out of rehab and about to start a new movie,” Stein tells PEOPLE. “He successfully completed his treatment.”
The actor, 48, voluntarily entered a facility to treat the addiction in August, Stein told PEOPLE at the time.
Duchovny has been married to actress Téa Leoni since 1997. They have two children, daughter Madelaine West, 9, and son Kyd, 6.
David Duchovny has checked into rehab to undergo treatment for sex addiction, E! News has confirmed.
“I have voluntarily entered a facility for the treatment of sex addiction,” Duchovny said in a statement released Thursday by his attorney, Stanton “Larry” Stein. “I ask for respect and privacy for my wife and children as we deal with this situation as a family.”
The 48-year-old X-Files star—who, ironically, won a Golden Globe this year for playing an over-sexed struggling writer on Showtime’s Californication—has been married to Téa Leoni since May 1997. They have two children together, daughter Madelaine West, 9, and son Kyd Miller, 6.
“All of us at Showtime wish David and his family the best during this very private time,” Richard Licata, the network’s executive VP of Corporate Communications, said in a statement to E! News.
The second season of Californication, premiering Sept. 28, finished shooting late last month and 12 episodes are ready to go.
Though it may have been awhile, this isn’t the first time Duchovny’s sex life has turned into a talking point.
