(Newser) – David Duchovny and Tea Leoni are divorced after 17 years of marriage—and they managed to keep the split secret for a couple months. Duchovny filed the paperwork in June, all the details have been settled, and only now did TMZ learn about it. They married in 1997 and separated in 2008 and again in 2011 (Page Six helpfully reminds us that 2008 was when Duchovny got treatment for sex addiction). No word on what caused the divorce other than the "irretrievable breakdown of the relationship" cited in the filing, but Leoni will have primary physical custody of their two kids, ages 12 and 15, while the couple shares joint legal custody.
