The plot thickens: David Boreanaz’s clandestine romp with a money-grubbing golddigger could end up being very costly for the actor’s still unidentified mistress. Boreanaz, who stars on the FOX series Bones, confirmed Monday that he had an extramarital affair — while his wife was pregnant — after his former mistress demanded a six-figure settlement to keep quiet about the relationship, Now that Boreanaz has copped to the tryst, his heartbroken wife is considering filing a lawsuit against the other woman, RadarOnline.com said Tuesday.
Boreanaz’s wife of nine years, Jaime Bergman, 34, lives in Utah, a state that still allows a spouse to sue under the long-standing “alienation of affection” clause, a law that provides financial compensation to spouses who believe a third party deliberately intended to breakup their marriage. It’s just the law Jaime needs to take her love rival to the cleaners.

The former Buffy the Vampire Slayer star did not name the woman he slept with but last October Star Magazine linked the star to Tiger Woods’ ex-mistress, NYC nightclub hostess Rachel Uchitel. The affair was revealed just a month before The National Enquirer broke the story of Uchitel’s affair with Woods.
In related news, TMZ.com suggests that Boreanaz was strong-armed in to admitted his infidelity by an unrelenting Gloria Allread.
