According to an Access Hollywood source, the duo have been together for “at least the past 10 months.” Neither Cox nor Van Holt have confirmed this news, but the heat between the two has been palpable for years.
In fact, Cox’s real life ex-husband, David Arquette, told Howard Stern back in 2010 that he believed Cox was having an “emotional affair” with her co-worker. Arquette broke up with the TBS star that same year. The pair just finalized their divorce late last month very amicably.
Cox has clearly moved on from the Scream star who was allegedly seen last week falling off the wagon after working hard on his sobriety post-marriage. Perhaps the finality of closing such a big chapter in his life was a bit too much for him.
The one thing that’s certain is the former couple has put the interests of their daughter, Coco, ahead of everything else. They continue to remain close friends for the sake of their child.
As for Cox and Van Holt, they’ll be returning to the small screen for Season 5 of Cougar Town after being renewed in March. The cable network has ordered 13 episodes for the season.
