Courteney Cox and David Arquette

Separated

10/11/2010 7:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Courteney Cox and David Arquette have separated after 11 years of marriage ... and TMZ has learned they've been separated for several months.

Separated
A source close to the couple tells us the two are "still friends" and they maintain a business relationship with each other. In fact, sources tell us ... no lawyers are involved.

The couple has one child together.

David and Courteney met on the set of "Scream" sometime around 1995 ... and were married in 1999. They are currently co-starring in the upcoming "Scream" movie due out next year.

There was a hint of things to come back on September 25 when Arquette was spotted out, sans wedding ring.

UPDATE: The couple has released a statement saying, "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."

The statement continues, "We remain best friends and responsible parents to our daughter and we still love each other deeply."

He seems like a decent man to me, even if he did run off at the mouth too much to Howard Stern. Well...? You can't have 'em stoic AND sensitive, at the same time. He's obviously more on the sensitive side...I'd rather have my man that way, I don't like the colder prouder type even if the sensitive emotional types are a little unpredictable. He is praising her character on the show. That is actually hard to find after 11 years, still sounding as if he really adores her. So he is dorky and immature -- well, he's mature enough to have stayed faithful 11 years, mature enough to be a father. Nobody's perfect. I hope they can work it out. Their kid is completely adorable.

According to David Arquette his wife was having an emotional affair with her Cougar Town co-star! Emotional may not be exactly the same as physical but a sin is a sin is a sin. Come on people where's your bitter,mean & thoughtless remarks!!!!!!!! When a man cheats on a woman, your ready to castrate him. If this story is true & the shoe's on the other foot, how come no public bashing. You did it to Jesse James & Tiger Woods. Sorry folks but fair is fair. REALLY!!!!!!!! I'M JUST SAYING!

Does anyone else notice that these two have been seperated for months -- and it just now comes out -- prior to the release of their movie??? Is this a ploy to bring attention to them (and their movie) to make more money? What is wrong with people that they will use their personal misfortunes (if they are in fact seperated) to use their fans and the public in general for their own monetary gain.

He must be an idiot. Have you seen how hot she is? He's got to do anything he can to make that work.

Never knew what she saw in the man anyways. I guess to each is own. He is kinda weird, nerdy, and creepy if u ask me and wouldn't doubt it if he married her for the money and publicity.

courteney you have been a long time with david ! seems to me that everyone makes mistakes in life. he had fallen into a trap in a habitual thing ! you still have your kid to consider and that kid needs both parents in their life ! mabey (PROPER) dident take off and that would have made a difference with him ! i dono but i am a dad of 4 and i know that is very importent to most men. you have a great relationship with jen ! did you ever ask david if he would like to run with you in the morning? instead of jen. mabey friends are not supposed to superseed faimily. i am hopeing you guys make up and live out your lives in peace ! anyways enjoy both of your tallents JD
