“Our marriage has been tainted with my infidelities,” David Boreanaz said of his affair. “I just want to be open and honest. I was irresponsible.” The former Angel star said his ex-mistress threatened to go public with her story to the media, so he decided to come clean about the affair first.

“I was associated with a woman who I was involved with and had a relationship with,” Boreanaz said. “She asked for money. I felt as though I was being blackmailed or there was some sort of extortion.” claims the alleged David Boreanaz mistress is being represented by celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred – who also represents several of Tiger Woods’ alleged mistresses. Allred reportedly contacted Boreanaz’s attorney and demanded a six figure deal to keep her client from talking.

Instead of paying up, Boreanaz decided to take his side of the story to the press first. Boreanaz said he and wife Jaime Bergman are “working on our marriage… We’re working on repairing what has been damaged so badly.” The couple has two children together, 8-year-old Jaden and 8-month-old Bardot.

We’re curious to learn who the other woman is in this affair. Last October, rumors popped up that Boreanaz had an affair with New York events planner Rachel Uchitel. Yes, the same woman named as one of Tiger Woods‘ alleged mistresses.
