David Arquette

Photos Triggered Separation Story

10/11/2010 7:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The reason word got out that Courteney Cox and David Arquette separated is because pictures have surfaced of David and a woman with whom he has been intimate ... and there's a Lindsay Lohan connection.

Photos
We're told the woman in question is Jasmine Waltz (right) -- if that name sounds familiar, that's because she's the girl who punched Lindsay Lohan on LiLo's birthday a few months back.

Our sources say David and Jasmine began seeing each other after David and Courteney had separated and agreed to see other people.

That said ... we're told a divorce is by no means a done deal.  We've learned the couple has been living apart for several months, but there is a "real possibility" they could get back together.  As one source said, "It's a work in progress."

As for why they separated, one source simply said, "Life."

UPDATE: A statement from the couple reads: "We have agreed to a trial separation that dates back for some time ... 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."

Funny thing is married is married. Saying your 'separated' doesnt change that. If you want to live the single life again so bad that you are willing to forget your marriage vows & not take them seriously then go ahead & get a divorce.

misleading title. It says that photos triggered the speration then the story clearly states that photos of david with another women were taken AFTER the seperation.

I'm not too surprised...they seemed to be quite the odd couple from day one. I think he is too corney and that would get pretty old after so many years.

Just another prove that we Humans, are never happy with what we have, we keep searching for happiness outside ourselfs, and we forgett that we must be happy first inside and then we can bring happiness outside!

I wish them the best. I always pray for a marriage to work out and wild animals to stray away from them in time of them working out their problems. Right now is when people like JOLIE fly in for the kill. Dont throw away a long marriage to party and sleep around because in the end the orgazism will be the same you will NO mental satisfication because you wont LOVE them. (NOT TO MENTION STD'S FLOATING AROUND HOLLYWOOD). No thank you.......Best of luck Courtney.
