It sounds like this pairing just wasn't meant to be.
According to sources, Courteney Cox and her former fiancé Johnny McDaid were so incompatible they actually split in February 2015 before calling it off for good a few months ago. Insiders also suggest the twelve year age difference led to an uncomfortable dynamic between the seemingly idyllic pair.

A confidante elaborated on the 51-year-old and her younger beau's issues, saying:
"She is domineering and used to getting what she wants in her relationships and in work. She is tough and doesn't suffer fools. Johnny is laid back and their personalities just clashed. She would try to mother him and he didn't like it."
Hmm, the "mother" angle is an interesting one because Cox's ex David Arquette is almost a decade younger than the actress. Not to mention, Arquette suffered from drinking problems during their marriage which means the beauty might have acted motherly as he battled alcoholism.
As for where Cox and the singer stand now? Apparently they're NOT talking:
"He's actually the one who instigated the breakup. He upped and moved. She doesn't know where he lives,' a source said. 'It's really bizarre how he's handled things. He's very cold, completely closed off from her."
Sounds super tough! Poor Courteney!
We just hope 2016 is better for the former lovers…
