David Arquette finally filed divorce papers; Courtney Cox reacts saying I didn’t know!
David Arquette finally bit the bullet earlier this week and filed divorce papers against his wife, Courteney Cox. The news comes as a surprise to no one, given that the couple has been separated for almost two years and made it obvious that reconciliation wouldn’t work.
Of course, TMZ cameras had to ask the former Friends star about her ex’s filing — and she feigned surprise about the whole thing.
“He diiiiid? Oh my god, I didn’t know,” she sarcastically replied to the inquiring cameraman.
So, it seems like both parties are moving on, though in February Cox did reveal that the dissolution of her marriage was pretty hard.
“The truth of the matter is that we love each other so much. We have such affection for each other, but we are very different,” she told Howard Stern. “I’m really not ready [to date]. I’m still emotionally… it’s hard. I was in a marriage for a very long time and just because we ended up growing apart for reasons of… we just led separate lives and we have different compatibility issues, I’m just not there.”
She even talked about what it would be like to get back with her crazy ex.
“There is a huge part of me that… there’s a huge part of my life with David, no question, but I feel like right now our relationship is probably better than it would be if we lived together, it’s definitely better than it used to be,” she said. “We communicate better, we have much more respect for each other, we listen. It’s hard.”
Basically, they’re better apart. Hopefully this translates into a positive co-parenting relationship with their daughter, Coco Arquette.
