Maybe he wasn't the one who needed rehab?

Californication star David Duchovny and his wife Tea Leoni have been separated for "a few months," according to a new statement from the former couple.

"In light of continuous speculation over the lives and marriage of Tea Leoni and David Duchovny, the couple has confirmed that they have in fact been separated for several months," the statement, released by their reps, says. "The couple had hoped to keep this separation private for the sake of their children."

David reportedly decided to end his 11-year marriage to fellow actress Tea, with whom he has two children, nine-year-old Madelaine West and six-year-old Kyd, after finding raunchy and sexually charged messages on her cell phone.

The messages were reportedly from Billy Bob Thornton, who Tea met while shooting the movie ‘Manure’ earlier this year. The pair are now said to be romantically involved.
