 David Duchovny Enters Rehabilitation for Sex Addiction

Hollywood actor David Duchovny has entered rehab for sex addiction, his lawyer has confirmed.

The 'Evolution' actor has entered the rehab on his own will, Stanton "Larry" Stein has said.


"I have voluntarily entered a facility for the treatment of sex addiction. I ask for respect and privacy for my wife and children as we deal with this situation as a family," US Weekly quoted Duchovny, as saying in a statement.

In the year 1997, the actor, who is presently married to actress Tea Leoni with two children, had denied all reports that he's a sex addict.

"I'm single and I had a long-term girlfriend up until last November, I have been seen with more than one woman in the last few months, so I'm an easy target for those kind of things," the actor told Playgirl magazine.

"I'm not a sex addict, I have never been to those meetings, it's hurtful to my family and if I was involved with a woman in a monogamous relationship, it would be hurtful to her, There was another story claiming I was a neat freak.

"If I had to choose one of the two, I think I'd rather be a sex addict, It's not funny and I'll be glad when it goes away," he had added.
