Courteney Cox, David Arquette divorce papers filed

Posted on

David Arquette has officially filed papers to dissolve his marriage to Courteney Cox, reports People. The actor filed a formal divorce petition Friday citing irreconcilable differences, TMZ first exclusively reported. So far, their divorce seems as amicable as their 20-month separation, with Arquette seeking joint custody of their 8-year-old daughter, Coco, but neither spousal nor child support. The couple married 13 years ago today after meeting on the set of 1996’s Scream.

At time of press, Arquette’s rep did not respond to EW’s request for comment.
