David Arquette Checks Into Rehab
Although just a few weeks ago David Arquette admitted to have been drinking a lot, the actor claimed he had no alcohol problem. Well, it seems that the star has just checked into rehab, seeking treatment for his issues.
The fact that the separation from his famous wife, Courteney Cox, affected David Arquette is not a secret since the actor admitted to be heart broken ever since the public announcement of the split had been made. However, things are quite serious when it comes to his condition, since the “Scream” star had to enter rehab, reports claim. According to TMZ, David Arquette decided to check himself into rehab during the holiday weekend and the star is now under treatment for his alcohol issues. Still, it seems that there are no drugs issues for the famous actor, and he is seeking treatment for drinking and depression. But, it seems that Arquette made the decision to check into rehab only after partying at Beacher’s Madhouse at the Roosevelt Hotel on New Year’s Eve.
Anyway, since David Arquette made the decision to check himself into rehab it probably means that the actor acknowledged he has a problem and sought treatment for that issue. And he also claimed he did so for the sake of his family. Well, at least his wife is proud of him. A rep for Courteney Cox said that “I really admire David and his choice to take charge and better his life. I love and support him.” And the actor checked into a live-in rehab facility.
David Arquette and Courteney Cox announced their separation in October 2010. After the public statement in which the two actors confirmed to have split, David Arquette made a series of comments about the marriage and the reason why the two separated. In a talk on Howard Stern’s radio show last month, the actor confessed to have been dealing really hard with the separation from Courteney. The two have been a married couple for about 11 years and they have a 6 years old daughter, Coco. “I’ve been drinking a lot because I’m heartbroken,” he said back then, adding that the whole experience had been a traumatic one. During the same interview David also said he believed to have a nervous breakdown. However, this was just his last intervention on the show because David Arquette also talked about the split after the official statement was released, when he divulged intimate details about his failing marriage and also admitted to have had an affair with a waitress after he and his wife separated in June. He also said that the married couple has had problems for a long while and actually claimed that they hadn’t had sex for about a month before they started working at “Scream 4.” Arquette said that the one to ask for the separation was his wife and the real reason of the split is that she is actually “tired of being your mother,” as Courteney told her husband. The two are now on trial separation and since they have been apart, both actors have been linked to other people.
As imagined, Courteney Cox did not appreciate the fact that her husband made public such details from their marriage and the actor also later admitted to have revealed too much. Anyway, according to People, Arquette had to seek treatment. “He is dealing with a broken heart,” a source told the magazine. “He can’t handle all the changes in his life. All his inner demons came out,” the source added referring of course to the 39 years old actor and his personal issues. And since David Arquette can not handle this situation on his own, he had to seek treatment, being really depressed.
David Arquette and Courteney Cox first met in 1996 on the set of “Scream.” They married three years later, in 1999, and separated in October 2010. The two are currently working together at “Scream 4,” movie which is set to hit theaters in April. Courteney Cox is well known for her successful “Friends” role, but also for being the “Cougar Town” star.11
