David Letterman revealed that the sex and blackmail scandal that rocked his reputation and marriage was “hell” — and sent him spiraling into depression!

In 2009, CBS News producer Robert Halderman discovered the TV host was having an affair with assistant Stephanie Birkitt — and threatened to turn the sordid story into a screenplay if he didn’t receive $2 million.

Letterman, then hosting “The Late Show,” shocked viewers by announcing he’d had sex with women who worked for him while exposing the extortion attempt.

But David confessed his agony to his inner circle, saying the experience was “akin to having killed your family in a car crash.”

“I was afraid my family was gone,” recalled the funnyman — but wife Regina Lasko still stood by him throughout the ordeal.
