During his time on the dance floor on Dancing With The Stars, it appeared as though David Arquette and Courtney Cox were headed toward a reconciliation, as she was in the audience each week cheering him on. Unfortunately for fans hoping so, David filed for divorce from Courtney. Keep reading for more!
David Arquette won our hearts during his stint on Dancing With The Stars, and fans were hoping that he would also win over the heart of his estranged wife, Courtney Cox. Despite the fact that David has publicly mentioned that he was hoping to reconcile with Courtney, he has officially filed for divorce from Cox. The couple have been separated since 2010, and apparently they could not work things out as David has cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the divorce.
David has also asked for split custody of the couple’s 8-year-old daughter, Coco, and he is not seeking any spousal support, according to TMZ. Ironically, even though the papers were just filed, they were signed back in March – poor David must have been holding out hope for a reconciliation. Meanwhile, Courtney Cox has stated publicly that she and David are just better off apart. Hmm, I think I know plenty of single ladies who would love to take David off your hands, Courtney.
Sadly, the divorce papers were filed on what would have been the couple’s 13th wedding anniversary. The pair met on the set of Scream back in 1995, and were married on June 12, 1999. In the past, they both have vowed to remain the best of friends – we’ll see how that plays out now.
