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."

So wait Courtney, Chelsea, Laura, Jen, Jenny, the Aniston Goddess circle actually get dumped. Well karma is a very important thing. Evil is as evil does. No sympathy for any of them. They all better keep their x's as friends because the truth aout who they really are would really surprise a lot of people.

Yeah, I'm thinking he is doing drugs again. That's always been the deal breaker for Courteney. He is a nice guy, but not the most dependable. Kind of like Peter Pan (and the rest of the Hollywood kids) he never really grew up.

They have been in marriage counseling for years. Their marriage has always had problems. I remember some of Courtney's recent interviews saying as much. She also continued even all these years talking about how different they were and it never sounded like she was happy. David just kind of lost himself. That wild crazy dressing guy vanished over the years.. Along with his acting. YES I know he has lots of other things in the works but he kind of just fell away. She seems nice but very cold. Well another member of the Goddess Circle is heading to a relationship end. Something is off about all these women.. Just look at the lot of them.. Aniston, Dern, Crowe, Cox and a few others..

So much for "a deal's a deal", which, per the couple, is engraved on their wedding rings.

Hey David and Courtney, who gives a rat's ass? When you have an open relationship, what reason is there to even be together? Typical hollyood tools, the both of them. When people hear that the rest of the world hates us, it is because hollywood puts out more filth than anyone else and it is full of icky people like these two idiots. Wouldn't it be wonderful to be their kids?
