Boreanaz, who played Angel in the cult show and it’s TV spin-off, has opened up about his bad behaviour to the upcoming People magazine.
He reveals he has been unfaithful to his wife, Jaime Bergman, and the two are currently trying to save their marriage – after a former mistress threatened to go public with their affair.
He confesses, “Our marriage has been tainted with my infidelities. I just want to be open and honest. I was irresponsible.
“I was associated with a woman who I was involved with and had a relationship with. She asked for money. I felt as though I was being blackmailed or there was some sort of extortion.”
Boreanaz joins Tiger Woods, Sandra Bullock’s estranged husband Jesse James and Take That star Mark Owen on the list of famous bad boys who have been forced to come clean about their infidelities in recent months.
The actor hopes the mistakes he has made don’t end his marriage: “We’re working on repairing what has been damaged so badly.”
Boreanaz and actress Bergman have an eight-year-old son, called Jaden Rayne, and a daughter, Bardot Vita Boreanaz, who was born last summer (Aug09).
This is his second marriage. His first union with Ingrid Quinn ended in divorce after just two years in 1999.
