Divorce finalized for David Duchovny and Tea Leoni
After 17 years of marriage, former X Files star David Duchovny and The Naked Truth actress Tea Leoni are divorcing, an online report stated on Saturday, August 9.
Divorce papers filed by the couple in June cited “an irretrievable breakdown of the relationship” as the cause of the split. Both Duchovny and Leoni will share joint legal custody of their children, Madelaine West, 15, and Kyd Miller, 12, although Leoni will have primary physical custody. Every month, Duchovny will reportedly pay $40,000 in spousal support and $8,333 in child support, among other expenses.
The two separated in 2008, the same year Duchovny entered into a treatment center for sexual addiction. The couple separated again in 2011 before filing for a divorce this year.
Ending years of marriage through a divorce can be difficult for anyone, not just for the couple but also any kids involved.
