Yesterday, it was announced that Courteney Cox and David Arquette had decided to separate after 11 years of marriage. The couple have confirmed the news this morning, releasing a statement that 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."
That's all well and good, but we are just so damn curious what happened! They looked so in love!
But looks can be deceiving. Sources are reporting that in the several months that the pair have been separated, not only have they been living in different places, but they have been seeing other people!
Yes, while some suspected that David could have been cheating on Court, turns out he was just exercising his given right, as per their separation agreement, to get cozy with other ladies. That's how the separation was discovered. David was spotted getting cozy with a woman named Jasmine Waltz. (You might remember her as the girl decked LiLo out on her birthday a few months ago.)
But while David might by canoodling and an official statement has been made, sources close to the couple say don't count on a divorce anytime soon. We're hearing there is a "real possibility" they could get back together.
We sure hope so. We get the need for some time apart and maybe that will be good for them, but they've had a long marriage and have got one pretty awesome kid. We'd hate to see that all go to waste!
