David Duchovny Is Not Dating 'X-Files' Co-Star Gillian Anderson: Internet Rumours Quashed

A representative for David Duchovny has shut down rumours the actor is dating his former The X-Files co-star Gillian Anderson following her split from her longtime boyfriend.

Gossip website CelebDirtyLaundry.com sparked the claims after posting an article suggesting the two former colleagues had been "in a serious relationship for some time now" on Wednesday, the day after Anderson confirmed her six-year romance with Mark Griffiths was over.

Duchovny has been single since separating from his wife Tea Leoni for a second time last year.
