David Sues Over Alleged Californication

10/22/2008 6:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David Duchovny has filed a lawsuit claiming he was defamed by a newspaper that claimed he was in a relationship with a 28-year-old tennis coach.

The Daily Mail, a London paper, ran a story over the weekend claiming that David had a "full-blown sexual affair" with Edit Pakay, a tennis instructor.

In the lawsuit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, Duchovny claims "The story falsely alleges that Duchovny sought out Ms. Pakay to be his tennis instructor and that the 'professional relationship'...quickly turned into a love match." The suit points out Duchovny had said he would leave Tea Leoni for Pakay.

Duchovny says there was never a romantic relationship. The suit claims, contrary to the story, that Pakay never told the paper there was a romantic or sexual relationship.

David wants at least a mil in damages.

Oh lord. David has been bad! If I was Tea Lioni, I'd do what i did when I found out my hubby cheated on me: sell the engagement ring he gave me to www.idonowidont.com I hope Tea does this and closes the book on this marriage for good. I used to like David Duchovny from the X-Files days but not anymore!

No wonder, huh John?    

Since when did it matter if people in other countries hate mine?

I don't give 2 $h!ts about what some stupid foreign bigot thinks about My country.

I'd rather be hated by the entire world than share the same baseless hate with people I wouldn't even trust to wash my car...

John-
If you hate Americans so much why are you reading material on an American website? And since the rest of the world hates us I guess we can stop supporting it financially. Wait! What's that you say? John doesn't speak for the rest of the world? Oh, my...

Why do you hate Americans? Is it because we have orthodontics?

Why are you saying he's bad? I think he has every right to sue them if what they said was wrong and false, If he had indeed cheated with this woman why proceed with a lawsuit at all when his marriage is already over? Stop kicking someone when their down already and knock it off.

Good for David! If the story was false then he should sue. You can't just print whatever you want and get away with it. Sign me up for that jury!

How much did they pay the tennis instructor to change her story? Do lawyers really think people are that dumb?

If David didn't do it, and as reports said, Tea coaxed him into going into rehab, then maybe she just wanted him out of the way for a time while she bobbed Billy.
