Courteney Cox files for divorce, wants to drop 'Arquette' last name

The same day David Arquette officially filed papers to end his marriage to Courteney Cox, Cox separately filed papers as well, according to People. Cox’s filing lists the same reason for the split (irreconcilable differences) and requests the same custody agreement as Arquette’s papers. Cox also requested to drop “Arquette” from her last name. The couple married 13 years ago after meeting on the set of 1996′s Scream.

As of press time, Cox’s rep did not respond to EW’s request for comment.
