E! News confirmed Monday that Courteney Cox and husband David Arquette have separated after 11 years of marriage.
The couple, who together have a six-year-old daughter by the name of Coco, have issued a statement to the media concerning their split, stating:
“We have agreed to a trial separation that dates back for some time. The reason for this separation is to better understand ourselves and the qualities we need in a partner and for our marriage. We remain best friends and responsible parents to our daughter and we still love each other deeply. As we go though this process we are determined to use kindness and understanding to get through this together.”
“We are comfortable with the boundaries that we have established for each other during this separation and we hope that our friends, family, fans and the media also show us respect, dignity, understanding and love at this time as well.”
Fans can still see the two reunite on-screen for the upcoming slasher ‘Scream 4’, but in the meantime, with such a respectable statement, let’s all pray that the tabloids respect their wishes and don’t have a field day with this one.
