David and Courtney no longer Friends
David Arquette has filed for divorce from Courtney Cox Arquette.
Court records state the actor cited irreconcilable differences in his petition to end the couple’s 12-year marriage.
David filed the petition last weekend in Los Angeles and the paperwork indicates he is self-represented. A publicist for the actor declined to comment and Courtney’s camp could not be immediately reached.
David and Courtney have a seven-year-old daughter and he is seeking joint custody. The pair met on the set of ‘Scream’ in 1996.
They married three years later. They announced their separation in 2010, although David’s filing lists the separation date as December 31, 2011.
It does not include any other details, but indicates Arquette signed the documents on March 23. Courtney gained widespread fame for her role on the smash hit TV comedy ‘Friends’ and also currently stars in ‘Cougar Town’.
David is an executive producer of that show and
has also appeared in films including ‘Never Been Kissed’ and ’3000 Miles to Graceland’.
