Duchovny splits from wife

Hollywood couple David Duchovny and Tea Leoni have split after 11 years of marriage.

The pair separated some time ago, but opted to keep the news of the break-up private for the sake of their two children, Madelaine (nine) and Kyd (six) according to a statement from their representatives.

The statement read: "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 couple had hoped to keep this separation private for the sake of their children."

The news comes just a week after Duchovny checked out of a rehab clinic in Arizona after completing treatment for sex addiction.

Duchovny and Leoni wed in May, 1997 after a whirlwind romance.
