David Arquette and Courteney Cox: It's Legally Over!

by at . Comments

They may still get along better than most couples, but David Arquette and Courteney Cox are officially out of the marriage game: the actor filed for divorce from the actress today.

In legal documents obtained by TMZ, Arquette cites "irreconcilable differences" as the basis for the twosome's split. They were wed exactly 13 years ago today and share an eight-year old daughter named Coco.

Cox and Arquette met on the set of the original Scream and rumors of their split first surfaced in October 2010 when the latter was accused of an affair and the stars released a statement saying: "The reason for this separation is to better understand ourselves and the qualities we need in a partner and for our marriage."

Arquette proceeded to embark on a series of wild weekends and eventually ended up in rehab in January 2011.

But Cox supported her husband throughout, going on record with how proud she was of David for seeking help.

Neither side has bashed the other in public once and Arquette is not seeking spousal or child support in the divorce proceedings.

Logan, yes thats what i thought about too when i heard they split up, thats why i'm sad for them cos at first they said it was just temporary. I guess they really drifted apart or something.


Guess what the inside of their wedding rings say: "A deal is a deal". Courtney went on record several years ago to say why they would never get divorced. "A Deal is a Deal"...


Filing doesn't make it "legally over", finalizing the divorce does.
