I have upsetting news for all of us who adore the big, lovable lug named David Boreanaz. According to Star Magazine, David was having an affair with a New York woman named Rachel Uchitel. David has been married to his second wife Jamie Bergman for eight years, since 2001. David and Jamie have two children – 7-year-old Jaden and nearly 2-month-old daughter Bardot. Star claims that David has been having an affair with Rachel Uchitel since the spring, when his wife was pregnant. Star has a photograph of Rachel and David, but it looks like it was taken at a party and doesn’t really prove anything. Here’s Star’s report:
David Boreanaz and his wife of eight years, Jaime Bergman, were all lovey-dovey at the opening night of Cirque du Soleil’s Kooza on Oct. 16. But behind their smiles, the couple is dealing with a dark revelation: David cheated on Jaime throughout her recent pregnancy!
Star has learned exclusively that the Bones star — who welcomed daughter Bardot six weeks ago — was seeing brunette beauty Rachel Uchitel, a NYC events planner, since the spring when he celebrated his 40th birthday at a club she works for, Griffin. “He was attracted to Rachel and asked her for her number,” says an insider. “She gave him her card, and he texted her that night to have a drink with him. She went, and they had a major connection.”
During their relationship, which Rachel ended two weeks after Bardot’s birth, David and Rachel saw each other once a month in NYC or L.A., and spoke on the phone or via text message up to 50 times a day! Even though their romance was long-distance, when together, the chemistry was electric. “David would walk in the door, and they’d have sex right away,” reveals the insider. “He told her, ‘Every time I have sex with you is like the first time.’”
But although David promised to leave his wife, Rachel tired of sharing him with Jaime and their two children (the couple also has a 7-year-old son). The final straw for Rachel came when David was in the delivery room with Jaime for their daughter’s birth on Aug. 31. “He was on the phone with Rachel, giving updates,” says the insider. “That grossed her out, because she felt that should have been private.”

Ugh. If this has any truth, then I am sorely disappointed. However, I have serious doubts. On Live Journal, someone pointed out that the photo of David and Rachel looked weird, and could possibly be photoshopped. They also pointed out that originally the picture was from September 17th, when David was backstage at the Rock of Ages Broadway show in New York, if that makes any difference.
What’s the verdict? Is David a bad guy who cheated on his pregnant wife? Or is he the victim of nasty tabloid reporting? I have no idea. In every interview I’ve ever seen with him, he seems like one of the sweetest guys in the world. And I know for a fact that he and his Bones costar Emily Deschanel absolutely adore each other – if I were going to believe a “David Boreanaz is a cheater” story, I’d buy him and Emily before this other woman. Speaking of, I’ll leave you with this cute interview from earlier this year with Emily and David… see? They could totally be doing it.
