Courteney Cox and David Arquette Split Up
After 11 years of marriage, former Friends gal Courteney Cox and her husband, David Arquette have decided to separate. No reason was given for the split, though earlier this year rumors surfaced that Cox had begun dating her Cougar Town co-star Brian Van Holt.
The pair wed in June 1999, and welcomed daughter Coco Riley on June 13, 2004.
In a joint statement from both their reps, the couple said:
We have agreed to a trial separation that dates back for some time. The reason for this separation is to better understand ourselves and the qualities we need in a partner and for our marriage. We remain best friends and responsible parents to our daughter and we still love each other deeply. As we go though this process we are determined to use kindness and understanding to get through this together. We are comfortable with the boundaries that we have established for each other during this separation and we hope that our friends, family, fans and the media also show us respect, dignity, understanding and love at this time as well.
Though Cox and Arquette’s marriage may be kaput, their professional relationship continues; they’ll next be seen on screen together in the upcoming Scream 4, which opens on April 15, 2011.
