The actor, best known for his work on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel and Bones, came clean to People about his multiple affairs after one of his mistresses threatened to go public if he didn't pay her off.
Boreanaz has been married to Jaime Bergman for nine years, pretty much none of them faithfully. "Our marriage has been tainted with my infidelities," Boreanaz told People. "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," he said. "She asked for money. I felt as though I was being blackmailed or there was some sort of extortion."
In fact, Boreanaz's lawyer Marty Singer claims the woman hired legal pit bull Gloria Allred to wrangle a huge settlement.
"On April 23, the woman left a very threatening message that she was going to the media, that my client had not given her enough money," Singer told TMZ. "It is true I did leave a message for the woman because of the extortionist threat she left with my client. On Monday, I received a call from Gloria Allred and she told me the woman was looking to get paid at least six figures."
Allred also reps a few of Tiger Woods' mistresses.
So what's next for Boreanaz and Bergman? "We're working on our marriage," he said. "We're working on repairing what has been damaged so badly."
