David Arquette Files For Divorce From Cox
David Arquette Files For Divorce From Cox, The star chooses an interesting time to end his 13-year marriage to Courteney Cox. It looks like David Arquette and Courteney Cox are officially just friends, as the actor has finally filed for divorce from the “Cougar Town” star, citing irreconcilable differences.
Arquette’s legal team filed the divorce papers in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday — the same day he arrived in Israel to visit Jerusalem and then Tel Aviv. The trip seems to be a spiritual one for Arquette, who had his bar mitzvah — at the age of 40 — at Israel’s Western Wall on Monday. “I had my Bar Mitzvah today,” Arquette, whose mother was Jewish, tweeted following the ceremony, noting: “Finally I’m a man.”
Apparently, Arquette was considering filing the legal documents for several months prior to when he made it official last week. Next to his signature on the divorce papers, in two spots, is the date March 23, 2012.
The news of the Arquette-Cox divorce broke on Tuesday, which would have been their 13th wedding anniversary. However, the couple, who met on the set of “Scream” and married in San Francisco three years later, had announced their separation in October 2010 following months of tabloid reports linking them to other people. In a statement at the time, they noted that they were considering it a “trial separation” and that it “dates back for some time.”
Interestingly, in the divorce papers Arquette lists their separation date as December 31, 2011.
