Courteney Cox is dating her co-star Brian Van Holt, who is the man her now ex-husband, David Arquette, accused her of having an “emotional affair” with when they split.
The 49-year-old beauty, whose divorce was recently finalized to Arquette, has finally gone public with her new love.
Cox and Arquette split in 2010 and their divorce was finalized by a judge last month.
Courteney has been linked to her “Cougar Town” co-star several times in the past, but is finally ready to go public with the relationship.
An insider said, “They’ve been going out for about six months”.
Courteney Cox and Brian Van Holt were recently spotted on a date at West Hollywood’s Chi Lin restaurant, where a witness said they certainly acted like a couple as they dined with Courteney’s nine-year-old daughter with David, Coco.
The eyewitness said, “(Coco) was extremely comfortable with Brian. She treated him like a dad or an uncle.”
The news of Courteney’s romance comes two years after David Arquette claimed she was having an emotional affair with the 43-year-old actor. Brian plays Courteney’s ex-husband on the ABC show.
Arquette and Cox have insisted they are much closer after splitting.
Courteney Cox told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres of David, “He’s my best friend in the world. I love him. I appreciate David more now than I ever did.”
David Arquette, 41, recently started drinking again after his split from Christina McLarty. Could his ex-wife’s new love also have been a factor?
