Thornton said that before he married Angland he dated her for many years because he did not want her to feel that she was just a number."I didn't want her to be called number six. " he said, referring to the number of times he has been married.
Thornton and Angland have been together for the past 12 years.
The pair got married in 2000 after meeting on the sets of the 1999 movie Pushing Tin.
After his split from Jolie, Thornton married Connie Angland, with whom he shares a 12-year-old daughter named Bella.
It was Miss Leoni who persuaded her husband to receive treatment for 'sexual compulsion proclivity' at the Meadows clinic in Arizona, followed by further treatment at the Keystone centre in Pennsylvania.
A spokeswoman for Leoni said: "She is living on her own with the children in New York, but we did not want to announce it for the sake of the children until after David had received treatment for his problems."A spokesman for Thornton was unavailable for comment.
Somehow David managed to fly below the radar way back in June and file for divorce.
While David ultimately admitted to cheating with various women it was just sex, whatever Tea had going with Billy Bob resembled more of a relationship and it’s something that David was never really able to get past.Social media erupted following the awkward incident, which occurred after he won the best actor in a television series gong for his Amazon show Goliath, in which he plays an alcoholic lawyer who fights for the little guy.Unlike the 61-year-old's jolly demanour on stage moments later, Billy bob looked distinctly stony faced as he forced his way past his former fiancee on his way to picking up his prestigious paperweight.When David Duchovny and Tea Leoni first separated back in 2008 it was revealed that he was a serial cheating sex addict.He was working on the set of Californication and couldn’t keep his fingers out of that proverbial cookie jar.Thornton has two sons, Willie and Harry, and two daughters, Amanda and Bella.
