After months of denials, Bones star David Boreanaz is finally copping to tabloid rumors romantically-linking him to at least two extramartial affairs– including one with Tiger Woods Mistress #1 Rachel Uchitel — in a bid to thwart an extortion attempt.
Angel, how could you!!?
Boreanaz has confessed to being unfaithful to his wife of nine years, Jaime Bergman, during her recent pregnancy because a former mistress threatened to expose the affair if he didn’t pony over fistfuls of dough. In revealing chat with PEOPLE Magazine on Monday, the actor confessed that the unidentified woman contacted an attorney and asked for money in return for her silence.
Last October, rumors surfaced on the pages of Star Magazine that the actor had stepped out on his spouse with NYC hostess Rachel Uchitel. A month later, Uchitel became the first woman named in the Tiger Woods sex scandal.
“I was associated with a woman who I was involved with and had a relationship with,” Boreanaz confessed to the mag. “She asked for money. I felt as though I was being blackmailed or there was some sort of extortion,” he explained. “Our marriage has been tainted with my infidelities. I was irresponsible.”
Boreanaz rose to fame in the ’90s playing Angel on The WB cult classic Buffy The Vampire Slayer and its spinoff drama Angel. He and wife Jaime have two children together.
