Some sad news today - after nearly three years of divorce proceedings, the split between Courteney Cox and David Arquette is finally official. The couple, who got together in 1999, called it quits in 2010 and have been doing to court song and dance ever since then. According to the Washington Post, a judge officially approved the split this Tuesday, after 14 years of marriage. No details of the divorce settlement have been announced.

Cox and Arquette legally separated on Dec. 31, 2011, about six months before the pair officially filed for divorce. The couple met while filming “Scream” and announced their split in October 2010. Still, the divorce remained civil and the pair vowed to stay friends and continue raising their daughter together. The struggle to get the divorce finalized has been painfully slow, so the fact that the couple managed to remain friends throughout can only be held to their credit.

Additionally, Cox and Arquette also have some shared creative ventures. After Cox gained international stardom on the 90s sitcom Friends, she moved on to the series Cougartown, which is produced, not so coincidentally, by David Arquette. The producer and actor has also appeared in such films as Never Been Kissed. The People website was the first to break the news that the divorce had been finalised.
