Courteney Cox & David Arquette Split

Courteney Cox and David Arquette have split after 11 years of marriage but are still friends, JustJared.com can confirm.

Reps for the couple released the following statement: “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 [Coco, 6] 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.”

David and Courteney met in 1995 on the set of Scream, married four years later, and co-star in the new Scream movie, out next year.

InTouch first broke the news of the split.

    Totally see this one coming. It’s no surprise he cheated on her if she spends most of the time with that pathetic creature Jennifer Aniston instead of her husband.

  • Samii

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
    i just found out they were married.

  • http://jorevcosmetics.com Ms Bar Jolie Gaga

    Oh wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I did not see that coming! If Jen Aniston goes on the PR circuit to start attacking some other woman for this break-up, I think she should be banned from speaking forever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • lipz

    wow, i was shocked at first! then i thoght, when was the last time they were spotted out together and happy?

  • Sami

    Wow. I feel guilty for this because they have a child, but I feel a smug sense of glee. I always thought there were THREE people in that marriage, with Aniston stalking Cox and David, and ingratiating herself into their marriage. That marriage was crowded with Jen tagging along everywhere; when would Courteney and David have had ALONE time? No wonder the marriage failed. Aniston fuqks up everything she touches, especially when she is so clingy she ingratiates herself into another marriage and becomes the ‘third wheel’. She must have had something to do with it, considering she never leaves the Arquettes alone for a moment.

  • Sami

    And a very happy Anniversary to my parents this day the 12th October (it is the 12th where I am); their 42nd (Forty-second) Anniversary. 42 years! Then again, they never had a clingy stalker playing piggy-in-the-middle all the time.

  • Sami

    @Tracy:
    “Now her and Jen can finally be together.”

    BWAHAHAHA :D Roflmao, so SO TRUE. Its what Jen wanted all along. Now, she drove David away and has Courteney all to herself. lol, lucky Courteney. pmsl.

  • Gabe

    So does this mean that rumor about her and the blond guy on Cougar Town is true?

  • pattypatty

    They did seem mis-matched. She deserves better.

  • sue123

    Angie and brad are also mis-matched also, won’t last.

  • Sami

    @sue123: They already have lasted Sue, longer than Jen and Brad were even married. hahahahaha

  • Naughty_by_Nature

    QUOTE adjectives;
    best friends ,responsible parents we still love each other deeply, kindness and understanding, together..(…) UNQUOTE

    wow! I realy thought these characteristics make a mariage work. Seems they didn’t need to break up afterall..or is this just the drill when celebs break up..Honestly all these qualities mention where do you go wrong??

    IM PRAYING, THIS HAS TO BE A LIE

    @MrMarleyFAN:

    MrMarleyFan:
    I respect your opinion, I just happen not to agree. Obviously, I don’t think my opinion is naive because it’s my opinion.
    Your statement of:
    “We’re accepting of things we allow the heart to blind us to. We buy into “they’ll change once we get married” or, “my love will make it all ok.” Rose coloured glasses is for fools. Yeah, there are things we accept and find a way to live with; some quirk or habit that irks the hell out of us but isn’t a deal breaker. ”

    Is exactly what my previous post was based upon. You cannot change people, and you should not want to change a person that you plan on “hopefully” spending the rest of your life with. You accept a person for who they are, or you move on prior to getting married and bringing children into the equation. I was simply voicing my opinion which was formed on the information printed in the media. Let’s face it, none of us knows what goes/went on behind the closed door of their home. I wish them and their child the best in what I am sure is a difficult situation.

  • Sera Cohw

    David caught Courteney and Maniston with a strap-on.
    True story!

  • Observer2

    Well, can’t say I’m surprised. The way that Courtney talked about David, she barely tolerated him.

    And now the Goddess circle is really complete. They can have at each other. Especially Aniston and Courtney.

  • oh nos

    I hope the rumor of Courtney hooking up with her costar isn’t true.
    And I hope this separation will allow them to mend their marriage. They seemed like a good couple, and I wish them the best in their trial separation, no matter the outcome.

  • LAURA

    SHE’S SO OLD FOR HIM, HE CAN’T STAND HER BOTOX FACE.

  • Anastasia

    Aww,really sad news.they made a nice couple but as it seems they couldn’t solve theirs problems in their marriage..The good news is that they remain close,their separation is amicable and they will always have Coco..

  • kp hearts butler

    It’s too bad, but, I’d hate to say it….I kinda saw it coming.
    Does he have any career going on anymore? Cause, she does even if it’s “cougartown”, some guys just aren’t strong enough to deal with a woman who is more successful than them. Also, I think he may have wanted kids? He seems like the type?

  • http://twitter.com/veggieangel veggieangel

    OMG … -.-

    That’s soooo sad …

    They are such a great Couple ♥

    :(((((

    LIAR LIAR!!! YOU’RE SUCH A DESPERATE JERK!!!
    ———————————————————-
    Oh my were you lying on the floor with your legs and arms flailing because your comforter fell out of your mouth? I didn’t create it, it was a blind item from September which means it may or may not be true in it’s entirety or has an element of truth. I found it interesting in the wake if this split. Try to stay in your pram next time the item wasn’t about you. Only a true jerk would get this upset about it. Now here is your comforter, ok now? Next time try using your own name.

  • Edelina

    the brangelinas are unbelievable! what a nasty people! so much hatred, so much anger, so much wickedness, so much hypocrisy… what a sad people! when pitt and jolie break up their fans deserve bad words of consolation…

  • Edelina

    bad news… hope the better for they both! I guess they will back together…

  • Anastacia

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! why ?? why ???!

  • nasra

    It is true, with manniston constantly hanging around them, this marriage was too crowded! You could always tell from David’s face.

    Jen must have poisoned CC to not having more babies with David in order to look young but ugly, addicted to botox! Jen is happy now that they can fly together ………with same colours!!. Poor CC!

    Brad was right to make a quick exit! Long live brangelinas! You are sooooo goooood together!!

  • thats_right

    I’m sad for Cortney Cox I really like her in Friends as Monica, her and Phoebe were my favorites in Friends, but at the other hand David will be free of that Chinifer Aniston who was always in their lives.

    Wow,2010 is not going to be a Happy Year for all the “godless circle”.What with all the bombed movies,trial separations,divorces,cheating etc.As they say,what goes around,comes around.Bwahahahahahahahahaha!!!

  • pap
  • sianna

    I never understand people who waste their time to comment on the lives of people they dislike. This is just to criticize, be nasty and well you pity! But as they say in France “He laughs best who laughs last,” one day is the celebrity you love to live the same (it will not last long in the lap of Brangelina and I am sure they are still together just for kids

    For people who hate Jen and Courteney all, you spend much time talking about them. It’s so easy to insult behind his computer and be hateful, out of all this hatred because you’re not comfortable in your skin. A person well into his skin would not have so much hatred, jealousy and bad faith

    I hope someday you separate the man with whom you spent so many years and people will judge you and insult you without even knowing

  • angie

    Courteney is not responsible! David is crazy
    He tells their life to Howard Stern, and intimate things
    David, just shut up even if what he said about her is nice
