Tea Leoni and David Duchovny split

They've made up in the past but Tea Leoni and David Duchovny are once again going their separate ways.

A rep for Leoni, 45, tells CNN that reports of the couple splitting up are true.

It's not the first time for the pair, who have been married for 14 years, as they previously separated for months in 2008. At the time the 50-year-old "Californication" actor had undergone treatment for sex addiction, according to People, but Duchovny and Leoni then reconciled their relationship soon after.

The couple have two children together, 12-year-old Madelaine West and 9-year-old Kyd.

    So much for the supremacy of straight marriage. This crap is what Republicans are trying to "defend"? What a crock.

    Tea is a beautiful woman inside and out. Duchovny is an idiot of the highest order to let this angel slip through his fingers.

    I really think they like the racist comments, negativity and fear mongoring to keep being posted without any sort of moderation. The demented media wouldn't have anything to report on if no hostility in the world.....thanks cnn....you win the award for the dumbest topics to comment on! Oh, but on another note...when I ran into david duchovny he tried to bend me over...what a jerk!

    They shouldn't have got married if they weren't going to act on " I Do". Thats my view if you vary from that think what you think.

    Sorry to hear this about anyone, but Hollywood marriages simply have a lousy track record. Good luck to both of them. At least if they have been reasonably careful with their money, their kids should not have to want for anything. Sad though, a nuclear family always helps kids have better outcomes in general.

    As someone who knew her before she met that tool, she deserved better from the start. All of you lining up for him better be prepared to wait while he's out pounding some tramp while you're sitting at home with dinner on the table. She is a class act and those of you who are trashing her looks will never look that good at 45. Good riddance. I just hope he didn't give her a disease.

      Duchovny is a pretty good actor actually, funny and smart. Did you see the recent movie the Jones with him and Demi Moore? Really great, X-Files of course was a huge hit for many years. He's still in his acting prime.

    Why do these Hollyweirds even bother getting married, getting divorced means about as much to them as cancelling a dinner reservation at Le Cirque.

      That's a pretty unfair statement. Yes, they get divorced more often, but the pressures they face are much different than the normal person. I'm not saying that they didn't choose that life, because they did, but I'm sure most of them go into it believing that they will be the ones to beat the odds.
