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."

I'm sad to hear this. I thought they made a cute/unique couple. Hell, they lasted 11 years. In Hollyweird time that is close to 25. I hope they can resolve whatever problems they have and find their way back to one another.

Seemingly, and especially in show business, long term marriage is almost non-existent What is it people want ouside of the marriage? I guess it's the same old desires: More, More, More--chasing happiness (perceived happiness) based on immediate gratification needs and actions What a twisted Society we have all created. Now, that's the real sad.

Knock me over with a Feather! I guess Aniston can have Cox to herself now; she won't have to play second fiddle on Cox's date night with her husband. I hope this isn't Gale and Oprah, the Caucasian version. To tell you the truth Cox has probably spent more time with Aniston in the last few years than with her husband. I guess all that therapy didn't work. They both seemed to always be off doing their own thing. That's probably the only thing that kept them married this long. Anyway, since when does being SEPARATED help a marriage? It's just a prequel to the divorce. Wonder who is the next couple in their circle of friends to divorce. Laura Dern already got kicked to the curb. ANISTON is toxic, run for your lives lmao.

Another "broken" family. How sad is this. Their daughter will suffer the consequences that ALL children do should they decide to divorce. You can ignore it, but it will happen. Ask any adult today how, as a child, they managed when their parents divorced, and you will hear a painful story every time.

They said "The reason for this separation is to better understand ourselves and the qualities we need in a partner and for our marriage." So it seems that after 11 years they were unable to achieve this understanding? LOL! Looks like the same old Hollywood syndrome, " gotta get sum new nooky"! LOL!

There are many domestic abuse in Hollywood and we'll never hear their stories until something drastic have happen. The men are so abused by their wives especially if they have the money and the women abuse their husbands if they are the one who has the most money. Watch out there are much more couples on the brink and is really not together but just living together as room mates for a show to the world. Having money has a way of distorting one's reality in thinking it can solve the problems but it can also mass the problems and dig you a grave.
