Yet another cheating story out of Hollywood today as Bones star David Boreanaz admits that he’s been unfaithful to his wife of almost 9 years Jaime Bergman.
Rumors of David’s infidelity first popped up last October when Star magazine reported that he’d been seeing New York event planner Rachel Uchitel, alleging that the affair had taken place while Jaime was pregnant with the couple’s second child. If that name sounds familiar it’s because she’s also one of the women who has been linked to Tiger Woods.
Though he didn’t comment at the time, David has now issued a statement to People admitting, “Our marriage has been tainted with my infidelities. I just want to be open and honest. I was irresponsible.”
So why is the 40-year-old actor coming clean now? It seems a former mistress – he hasn’t said who – has threatened to go public with the news.
“I was associated with a woman who I was involved with and had a relationship with,” he says. “She asked for money. I felt as though I was being blackmailed or there was some sort of extortion.”
David says he’s now focused on getting his marriage back on track: “We’re working on our marriage. We’re working on repairing what has been damaged so badly.”
David and Jaime are parents to kids Jaden Rayne, 8, and Bardot Vita, 8 months.
