They separated nearly two years ago, but actor David Arquette has only now filed for divorce from Courtney Cox, according to ABC News affiliate KABC. According to the paperwork, which was signed in March, Arquette held onto the documents for months before filing.
The 40-year-old actor cites “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the divorce and has asked for joint legal custody of their daughter, Coco, who will be 8-years-old on Wednesday.
Arquette does not have a lawyer and appears to be representing himself. The divorce papers reportedly did not detail how their property and assets would be divided.
The estranged couple, who met on the set of “Scream” in 1995, get along fine. In a recent interview, Cox said that their relationship is better “than it would be if we lived together.” Cox was often seen in the audience cheering Arquette on when he competed on “Dancing with the Stars.”
The couple wed in June 1999 and first split in October 2010.
