Livingston, who earlier this year married actress Rosemarie DeWitt, claims a mystery internet bandit has been relentlessly changing his Wiki page to say he’s in a relationship with a man named Lee Dennison, a claim he says is false and “malicious.”

According to the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, the hacking began in May, and every time the false information is removed, the hacker “changes them back almost immediately.”

The 42-year-old actor also claims the hacker has also created phony Facebook profiles for himself and Dennison with both pages saying the two men are in a relationship together.

Livingston is suing for libel, invasion of privacy and for using his name and likeness without his permission. Damages haven’t been specified.

Livingston also appeared in Sex and the City as a writer who had a short relationship with the lead character Carrie Bradshaw, and in the miniseries Band of Brothers.
