Broken Confidentiality of Performance Appraisals

Hi, my problem is related to behaviour of my boss, who is a causing trouble, especially between employees, because he is spreading info gathered from one member of the team to the other members of the team. Doing that, he could get the others in a position to open their mouths too.
For instance, the last thing he did was my last perfomance appraisal, where I complained and wrote about the bad office environment.
While the performance evaluation is a confidential document, the things written there are to be known only by me, my supervisor and the boss of my supervisor, I noticed that my team mates started to reproach me what I've written in the performance evaluation.
My question is: how should I deal with that?
Many thanks for any ideas!
