Courteney Cox and David Arquette, who met on the set of “Scream 1″ have reportedly split and have reportedly been separated for months now.
It’s interesting to note that their split comes on the heels of photos being published showing David Arquette with a woman he was rumored to have had an affair with were revealed. But there were previous rumors Courteney Cox was cheating with her “Cougar Town” costar Brian Van Holt. It remains to be seen if the cheating rumors are true but it’s truly sad to see this couple split.
Courteney and David have agreed to a “trial separation” but remain married while they work things through.
The couple released a joint statement Oct. 11:
“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.”
The couple married in 1999 and have one daughter, Coco Riley Arquette, who was born in 2004.
Cox and Arquette are starring together in the fourth installment of the “Scream” series, due out next year.
