David Boreanaz cheated on his wife Jaime Bergman? People magazine reported that, Bones star David Boreanaz is opening up about reports that he has been unfaithful to his wife of nearly nine years, Jaime Bergman.
“Our marriage has been tainted with my infidelities,” the actor admits to PEOPLE. “I just want to be open and honest. I was irresponsible.”
The actor, 40, is coming forward, he says, because a former mistress, whom he declines to name, contacted an attorney and threatened to contact media outlets.
“I was associated with a woman who I was involved with and had a relationship with,” he says. “She asked for money. I felt as though I was being blackmailed or there was some sort of extortion.”
Now, with the news of his infidelities out in the open, Boreanaz is getting down to the difficult task of salvaging his relationship with his wife.
“We’re working on our marriage,” he says. “We’re working on repairing what has been damaged so badly.”

David Boreanaz went public today with his extra-marital affair after Gloria Allred contacted Boreanaz’s lawyer and demanded six figures … sources tell TMZ.
David admitted to PEOPLE mag he had a relationship with a woman — NOT RACHEL UCHITEL — but “She asked for money. I felt as though I was being blackmailed….”

Boreanaz then confessed the affair to Jaime Bergman, his wife of 9 years.
Enter Gloria Allred, who reps the mistress. Allred contacted Boreanaz’s lawyer — legal pit bull Marty Singer — and demanded 6 figures.
