David Duchovny and Tea Leoni said today they have been separated for quite some time, telling "Extra" that "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."
The statement continues, "The couple had hoped to keep this separation private for the sake of their children."
David, 48, entered rehab in August, seeking treatment for sex addiction. A Duchovny pal has denied the "Californication" star was having an affair -- and said he was fighting an addiction to online porn.
MomLogic.com's Dr. Shannon Fox says this type of addiction gets progressively worse until treated. "Like with any addiction, sex addiction is progressive," says Fox. "The things that used to satisfy them are no longer satisfying."
David has been married to Tea for 11 years, and they have two kids -- daughter Madelaine, 9, and son Kyd, 6.
