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 think this is just the latest in publicity stunts. They can manipulate it for a good while - so and so was seen with somebody - oh..the drama of it all. Then what will we read? They are back together, renewing their vows - all for publicity.

Whatever happened to being publicized for their work?

Sorry to hear that the "Hollywood types" can't make a go of it. My husband and I have been married for 42 years - my parents and his parents 59 years. Never made it to 60 because one of the spouses died. I realize that you never know who you are marrying, but after 11 years, you should have a good idea and be able to work through your problems. Get away from Hollywood and live a normal life in the burbs of Connecticut or Chicago or somewhere.

incredulous    

What??? Am I the only one who finds it REALLY odd that Laura Dern/Ben Harper announce divorce plans on Friday and Cox/Arquette announce divorce plans today? The two couples were together at the Lakers playoff game, David and Ben are in business together and Courtney and Laura are seen together frequently. Odd..

Don't forget Rosetta Getty - Courtney's BFF - super b*tch, rude, smug and her husband is too young and good looking for her as well. These women are power hungry, delusional, and the product of a sick world called LALA Land.

Demi is the worst one of all - COME ON! Stop tweeting sad pics of you and your much, younger, hotter husband and stop being an uber b*tch. I get the attraction for no-name, penniless actors towards these women but in the end evolution takes over and they want to be with someone whose ovaries aren't drying up. womp womp b*tches!

no one should ever get married. All married couples are secretly miserable.

She is too old for him, this whole cougar thing is a myth! No guy in his 20's or 30's wants an old bag in her 40's who has her face filled with Botox. Are you listening Demi?
