No 'Bones' About It: David Boreanaz Cheated On Wife

The TV star goes public about a mistress who allegedly tried to blackmail him, and the remorse he feels for straying

Nothing like blackmail to bring out the honesty in a relationship! David Boreanaz, 40, is the latest famous husband making headlines for his extramarital affairs. The Bones actor has been married to former Playboy model Jaime Bergman for almost 9 years, but has now told People that he's been unfaithful... repeatedly.

"Our marriage has been tainted with my infidelities," said Boreanaz. "I just want to be open and honest."

Ah, if only honesty was the former Angel star's only motivation! Boreanaz explained: "I was associated with a woman who I was involved with and had a relationship with. She asked for money. I felt as though I was being blackmailed or there was some sort of extortion."

Sigh. Why do they only 'fess up when they get caught?

According to TMZ, the mystery woman is someone who hooked up with Boreanaz "2 or 3 times" and had been receiving payouts from him ever since. When the girlfriend allegedly decided to up the stakes and demand six figures, she hired attorney Gloria Allred -- the same celebrity lawyer who represents two of Tiger Woods' (alleged) mistresses. The identity of the "other woman" hasn't been revealed, although TMZ has reported that it's not Rachel Uchitel, the Woods mistress who shares a romantic past with Boreanaz and is also repped by Allred. (Are you keeping all this straight? If one more famous cheater is caught with his pants down, we're going to need to make a chart.)

Boreanaz says that he and his wife are "working on repairing what has been damaged so badly." The couple has two children together: Jaden, 8 years old, and Bardot, who was born to the couple in August.
