Courteney Cox and David Arquette’s divorce is officially underway. Courteney apparently filed divorce papers on the same day that David filed (June 8) in Los Angeles Superior Court. The filing gives the same reason for the split and requests the same custody arrangement–irreconcilable differences and joint legal and physical custody of their 8-year-old daughter Coco.
Courteney has also requested to drop”Arquette” from her last name. In the hearing she plans to represent herself. David plans on doing the same.
Very seldom do you get a celebrity divorce so clean cut as this. Seems it’s been that way since the couple announced they were getting separated back in 2010. I always liked them as a couple, but hey, when it’s not working out, you have to do what’s right for you. It’s great they still consider themselves friends, and are moving on with this as friendly as possible. No public bashing. No messy custody hearings. No unnecessary arguments. That’s seriously rare among our stars! Wishing them both the best.
