David Arquette Files For Divorce

Courteney Cox and David ArquetteDavid Arquette has filed for divorce from Courteney Cox.

The Scream 4 actor filed divorce papers citing irreconcilable differences on Friday, almost two years after they separated. He is asking for joint legal and physical custody of their daughter, Coco, who turns eight tomorrow. According to the papers, David does not ask for spousal or child support and is representing himself in the divorce.

Today would have been the actor and former Friends star Courteney's 13th wedding anniversary. According to TMZ.com David signed the divorce papers in March, meaning he has held on to them for almost three months.

The couple got together after meeting of the set of the first Scream film in 1995 and married in 1999, but separated in October 2010. At the time they released a statement saying, "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."

The couple remained on good terms, with Courteney and Coco supporting David when he appeared on Dancing On Ice last year. The former couple were also interviewed together by radio DJ Howard Stern last year, and while David hinted he would like for them to get back together, Courtney was not so sure.

"We are always going to be a family - whether we're together or not," she did, however, say during the interview.

Since their split, David had a short romance with TV presenter Christina McLarty, while Courteney has remained single.
