EXCLUSIVE: MATT LEBLANC DUMPS WIFE FOR CO-STAR

By JOHN SOUTH

Matt LeBlanc is divorcing his wife after insiders say he fell for his on-screen lover, The National Enquirer can exclusively reveal.

Sources say Matt, 38, has been secretly dating blonde bombshell Andrea Anders, 30, who played sexy neighbor Alex on his sitcom Joey. Their characters had a steamy fling on the show — now they are said to be in a real-life romance.

A pal said former Friends star Matt confessed the relationship to wife Melissa, 41, after disappearing one weekend with Andrea.

"I don't love you any more," he is said to have told Melissa, an ex-model. "I want to be with Andrea."

He filed for divorce on March 30, citing irreconcilable differences. The couple have a two-year-old daughter, Marina, who has a rare brain disorder, and Melissa has two children from a previous marriage — Tyler, 13, and Jacquelyn, 10. Said the pal: "It knocked Melissa sideways. She wanted to save the marriage and Matt said he just wanted out."
