Separating celeb couples promise to put children first

David Arquette and Courtney Cox and Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman have revealed they are separating

Ex-Friends star Courteney Cox and husband David Arquette have revealed they are no longer together. David said that, although the couple’s 11-year marriage has broken up, he made sure that their daughter Coco, 6, understood what was going on.


“We went to a beach and had a picnic. I explained to her that we’re grown-ups, and a lot of the time when grown-ups are growing up, they need to figure out their lives… Sometimes that takes each other having a little space,” dad David explained in an interview on US radio.

“She (Coco) said, ‘Are you guys getting a divorce?’ I said, ‘No, we’re not getting a divorce, we’re just taking some time apart to get to know ourselves better and get to know what we want out of our mate better’,” said David

Christina Aguilera and her husband of five years Jordan Bratman have also announced they’ve split. Although the couple are said to be currently living ‘separate lives’ they are making sure that their 2-year-old son, Max, comes first.


“He is their main concern,” said a friend, reports the Metro. “Christina is doing her best to be a great mom. She has a lot to juggle but she’s learning how to make it work and balance it all.”
