David Duchovny and Téa Leoni: Back Together?

Téa Leoni and David Duchovny sure have a funny way of separating.

Rumors abounded earlier this fall regarding Californication star Duchovny, 48, and his alleged affair with tennis instructor Edit Pakay.

The actor, who famously portrayed “Fox Mulder” on The X-Files, even checked into an Arizona rehabilitation facility for sex addiciton.

But while he and wife of 11 years Leoni, 42, were said to be separated, Star is reporting they were recently spotted bringing their kids, Madelaine, 9, and Kyd, 6, to a Tasti D-Lite store in Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

“They were holding hands, and at one point, I saw David rub Téa’s back,” says a Star snitch. “They seemed incredibly loving.”

The tabloid also points out that Duchovny and Leona have slapped down $7.5 million for a  four-floor maisonette with its own entrance in a large building in the East Seventies of New York City. 

They’re apparently also subletting an apartment together in the same building, as they complete another $5 million in renovations on their new purchase.

Sounds like, in this case, absence really has made the heart(s) grow fonder.
