Duchovny's Tennis Coach To Blame For Leoni Split?

DAVID DUCHOVNY's female tennis coach has sparked rumours her friendship with the actor was the cause for his split from wife TEA LEONI.
News of Duchovny and Leoni's split hit the headlines on Wednesday (15Oct08) just days after the X-Files star checked out of an Arizona rehab centre, where he had been seeking help for sex addiction.
Leoni's co-star on upcoming film Manure, Billy Bob Thornton, was recently forced to dismiss talk of a romance between the two when the actress described him as "maybe my new favourite person in the world".
But now 48-year-old Duchovny's blonde coach Edit Pakay, 28, has sent gossips into a spin - after she failed to deny that she was having an affair with the star.
She tells Britain's The Mail on Sunday, "We have a very, very close friendship. I don't want to be the third person in the marriage but I know it can be seen that way.
"David and I are very close friends and we still play tennis together. He's an excellent player. He likes physically strong, fit women... He is a wonderful man. He's a very intelligent, very kind and good man.
"I don't want to say anything that might hurt David. I am not going to deny it (the affair claims). I don't know what our relationship means to him."
She adds, "I wasn't instantly attracted to him. What is great about David is his intelligence and kindness. He is the sort of person you get to like more the more you know him."

This woman could quite possibly have been a close friend who is now looking for a little attention in the public eye. What better way than to involve a celebrity! OR the press read it completely wrong and she is infact just a good friend. It is possible in the sick world we lve in to still confide and love a friend (without sex) and still be happily married. Rare thing, yes but not impossible! I just wish the sadistic press would leave the whole thing alone. David is getting dragged more and more through the mud and yet it was him that went for the therapy obviously trying to save his marriage! All I can say to the tabloids is back off and go and annoy someonelse! Thank you.

Another Excuse

Why does a 48 year old man, father of two, need a tennis coach? He's kinda beyond the prime tennis age, maybe he's looking for a new career choice...he may need it. My loyalty is slipping. Is she going to Georgia to continue her "coaching" while he is filming there?Just sign me "Sick To My Stomach"..
