According to Radar Online, 'X-Files' actor David Duchovny and his wife Tea Leoni have divorced after seventeen years of marriage. The couple filed for divorce last year, and a judge finalised the documents in June. The couple previously split briefly in 2008 whilst Duchovny sought treatment for sex addiction, but then seperated again in 2011. In 2012 David confirmed the couple were still married despite their seperation, but it appears they have now finalised their split.
