After being separated for about a year and a half David has decided to officially end his marriage to Courteney. The actor, who just had his bar mitzvah in Israel, is citing irreconcilable differences and is seeking joint custody of their 8-year old daughter Coco. In what is an interesting turn of events Arquette filed the papers today on what is the couple’s 13th wedding anniversary. Wowza talk about timing huh?
US Weekly is reporting that the Scream 4 star is not seeking any kind of spousal support from his soon to be ex-wife and that David will be representing himself through the divorce. Yep as of now he has no plans to get an attorney, I don’t know how good of an idea that is but I guess only time will tell.
It doesn’t really come as a surprise that David filed, the papers were actually signed back in March but neither of them had filed yet. Since their separation back in October the two have had an amicable separation, which stayed that way even when he started dating Entertainment Tonight reported Christina McLarty off and on.
They may be going their separate ways personally but that doesn’t mean that Courteney and David are parting ways professionally. Has they have since they separated the two will continue to work on the show Cougar Town, which moves to TBS in January. There are reports of them working on more projects together but at this time nothing official has been released.
Another celebrity couple bites the dust and even though they have been apart for 20 months I was hoping that Arquette and Cox would find a way to work it out. They just seemed so darn good together, guess appearances can be deceiving.
