David Arquette and Courteney Cox Announce Separation

After 11 years of marriage, David Arquette and Courteney Cox announced tonight in a joint statement that they're splitting up:


"The reason for this separation is to better understand ourselves and the qualities we need in a partner and for our marriage ... We remain best friends and responsible parents to our daughter and we still love each other deeply. As we go though this process we are determined to use kindness and understanding to get through this together. 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."

No word yet on who gets custody of their 6-year-old daughter, Coco, or Arquette's WCW championship belt.
