How David And Courteney Told Their Daughter About Breakup

david arquette tells daughter coco about breakup

There's really no easy way to break the news to your child.

Here's how David Arquette says he and Courteney broke the news about their split to their 6-year-old daughter, Coco:

"We went to a beach and had a picnic. [I] explained to her that we're grownups, and a lot of the time when grownups are growing up, they need to figure out their lives…sometimes that takes each other having a little space."

More from David about Coco's reaction:

"She said, 'Are you guys getting a divorce?' I said, 'No, We're not getting a divorce, we're just taking some time apart to get to know ourselves better and get to know what we want out of our mate better."

Sounds like you dealt with this in a very mature fashion, David.

We wish Coco the absolute best during what must be a tough transition period for her.

    Well it sounds like these adults got bored of themselves and found other people to screw. Instead of working things out and re invent there spice. Now they are going to screw this little girls life with a divorce. Kids come first once they come into the picture. Sad. It all takes work and change to see the benefits. So I think.

    First question out of her mouth "are you getting a dicvorce"?
    Great job David, now your daughter knows the family is breaking up and now she feels unstable and unsafe.

    You can still stay in the same house with Courtney and see other girls on the side, for the sake of your daughters well being.

    you and Courtney are fucking SELFISH SCUMBAGS for doing this to your daughter. you should be ashamed.

    Great… now the kid will hate picnics for the rest of her life. Nice job indeed!

    Time for Courteney Cox and Neil Fifer to give little CoCo a little brother or sister!

    'No, We're not getting a divorce…' — so this separation is either a sham to the public to draw 'Heidi & Spencer-like' attention to another unnecessary, lame, pathetic 'Scream' movie, or you're both 'taking a break' to sow some really OLD stinky oats, or you're lying to your daughter.

    Honestly, why do any of us care how they told their daughter. That is really a private matter that didn't need broadcasting. And while they may have told her this fluff story, one day she will have access to his Howard Stern interview and hear about how mommy wouldn't have sex with him so he went somewhere else. Class Act!

    If David A. cares so much about Coco OR wants to get back with Courteney…WHY go on Howard Stern and blab about so many hurtful or embarrassing details? For example, he complaned that their sex life felt "scheduled" — well, SHE is the one with the regular job and they are both parents and supposed to be mature adults.

    What by lying to her and telling her that they're not getting a divorce? Um ok. I'm pretty sure they WILL be getting a divorce.

    Re: Sexsai – did it ever occur to you that maybe after a marriage ends its better for the parents to live separately rather than forcing the child to live in a hostile environment? maybe you are the selfish scumbag

    Yeah, he's really mature, that's why he went and slept with another woman while they were separated and messed up the chance for them to get back together.
