Earlier today, married Bones star David Boreanaz admitted having an affair with an unnamed woman who he claims was trying to extort him for money.
Now, his wife Jamie Bergman may sue the woman he had affair with. As a Utah resident, she has grounds to file a lawsuit for "alienation of affection."
Really. Jamie believes the chick - who TMZ reports is NOT Rachel Uchitel, who Boreanaz also slept with - intended to breakup her marriage, it's so on.
The David Boreanaz affair came to light after his former mistress contacted an attorney and threatened to go to various media outlets with her story.
Naturally, that attorney was Gloria Allred.
Boreanaz says he refused to cough up the money she wanted so he, took the David Letterman route, outed himself and now accuses Allred of extortion.
Does Jaime Bergman have a case against David Boreanaz's mistress?
Allred who also reps Uchitel and helped the most notorious of the many Tiger Woods mistresses negotiate a mammoth settlement, denies any wrongdoing on her part and puts the blame for his actions squarely on Boreanaz.
Gloria claims David's lawyer, Marty Singer, tried contacting the mistress and only then did she get involved - and says she may have other "legal claims."
Singer responded that Allred's claim is only that Boreanaz had promised the mistress that she was "exclusive" ... even though she knew he was married.
The woman had a very short-term liaison with Boreanaz - 2-3 times - after which he paid her money but she allegedly kept demanding more and more.
Singer says on April 23, the woman left a threatening message that she had not gotten enough coin and was going public. On Monday, he says he got a call from Allred, who said woman was looking to get paid at least six figures.
She then threatened to go public unless David upped the ante, Singer says, so Boreanaz told the story publicly Monday. But Allred is ready to fight back:
"My client has not told her story, but now that Mr. Boreanaz is attacking her she has decided to tell the story of the relationship. The truth will come out."
The plot thickens! Stay tuned ...
