Duchovny to sue over affair allegations

David Duchovny is suing a British newspaper over allegations he had an affair with a Hungarian tennis coach.

Edit Pakay, 28, has been linked with the 'X-Files' star, following the announcement of his split from wife Tea Leoni.

She told the 'Mail on Sunday': "I don't want to say anything that might hurt David. I am not going to deny it. I don't know what our relationship means to him."

But Duchovny's attorney Larry Stein says the actor will launch legal action over the article because Pakay "never had a romantic or sexual relationship (with him)".

Stein told People.com: "Ms Pakay denied the rumours to me in person last Friday, saying they are just friends, and in addition, said in writing that such stories are lies and deceit."

Prior to his split with Leoni earlier this month, 48-year-old Duchovny was treated for sex addiction at an Arizona rehab clinic.
