After 11 years of marriage, Courteney Cox and David Arquette’s couples therapy has officially failed. The couple who met on the set of Scream are splitting up.
Unfortunately, Courteney’s past vocal expression about “how divorce is not an option” - is now buried in history. Interestingly, rumors of Courteney cheating on David with Cougar Town co-star Brian Van Holt may not just be rumors. And David may not have been the most faithful either.
Not free of the rumor mill himself, David’s been in the tabloids for seeing 28-year-old bartender Jasmine Waltz who’s most famous for punching Lindsay Lohan. Life & Style reports that, “David’s new girl, Jasmine, is a serial Hollywood dater. The aspiring actress has been linked to everyone from Ryan Seacrest to Jesse McCartney.” Jasmine’s also been with Danny Cipriani and Paris Hilton ex Doug Reinhardt.
Regardless of infidelity or just “irreconcilable differences,” Courteney and David remain cordial friends, maintaining a “business relationship.” According to a source for TMZ, there are no lawyers involved. For those who keep a close eye on the couple, this split wouldn’t have come as a complete shock since David was seen last month without his wedding ring.
A joint statement released by the couple states, “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 through 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.”
The parents of six-year-old Coco also are co-starring in another Scream movie due to hit theaters next year.
