Actor David Arquette filed for divorce from actress Courteney Cox in Los Angeles Superior Court on June 8, 2012, citing irreconcilable differences.
Arquette, 40, and Cox, 47, separated in October 2010. At the time of the split, Cox said “I don’t know what will happen, but this is not like we’re getting divorced. This is a separation and I think that takes a lot of courage…Whatever is supposed to happen will be the best thing for us.”
Cox confessed that she and her husband had grown apart after 11 years of marriage, “Sometimes you just realize ‘Wow, we actually have grown apart.” The actress had said in the past that “divorce is not an option”, but that clearly is no longer the case.
Although the couple is has been separated for over a year and a half, Cox says they are still very good friends and always will be.
“He’s my favorite person in the world,” Cox told People in January. “He’s my best friend. No matter what happens in our future, he’s my very best friend.”
