David Arquette checks into rehab

David Arquette, who publicly shared his frustration and heartbreak over his separation from actress Courteney Cox, has checked into a rehab program, according to his spokesperson. People quoted an anonymous source saying that the 39-year-old needed help with alcohol and depression, not hard drugs. “He is dealing with a broken heart,” said the source. “He can’t handle all the changes in his life. All his inner demons came out.”

Arquette and Cox announced in October that they intended to separate after 11 years of marriage. They have a 6-year-old daughter, Coco.

    Didn’t he cheat on her? Sorry, I got little sympathy for the guy.

    • HD

      It was only after they had seperated.

      • Leo

        and they were specific in the separation that they could each date. Courtenay knew about it and was okay with it. She’s the one in a serious relationship with someone else, not him.

      • Angie

        It’s a RUMOR’d emotional relationship – there’s been no confirmation that it’s gone beyond feelings.

      • Good Luck

        It was a long time coming. Hard to be married to a plastic surgeried skeletor and her perfect (blech) Friend.

      • Burnsy

        So you’re saying it was OK because they were on a break?

      • anon.

        @Burnsy: it’s okay, your FRIENDS reference wasn’t completely wasted. I got it. and it was funny.

    • sfday

      Right, then publicly admitted that it made him cry. Wow, what a total a**hole. Ahh, separation, divorce, so much fun to be had. Give the guy a break, he’s clearly suffering terribly.

  • HD

    Good for him for getting the help he needs. Much love to David, Courtney and their family during this hard time.

    • Ibadeta

      Well, besides give Anna’s her due (I am still in shock how psgsreorive she is and wearing Alex McQn)This Scream is Directed by Wes Craven AND a big AND written by Kevin Williamson, so have to be awesome. luv that u guys commented on it.

  • etm

    Get that poison out of your system, David.

  • TorontoTom

    Must be tough enough to realize you need help and to check into rehab but in the celeb crazed world we live in, you’ve got to issue a press release and share all your private stuff with the whole world. Find yourself at the mercy of the TMZ culture and be scrutinized by anyone and everyone. (i.e. watch and see how many smug, judgemental posts will appear here) I used to think it’d be pretty cool to be famous but anymore – I dunno…

    • Alia

      He kind of already DID share all his demons with the world. Voluntarily. On Howard Stern.

      Still, I hope he gets the help he needs and can put this whole mess behind him.

    • @ Tom

      Yes, it must be tough so maybe chose a career that doesn’t require you to seek the spotlight.

  • Sad

    Saw this coming after the Howard Stern stint. I hope he gets better.

  • Leo

    I think he is heartbroken and possibly reckless and suicidal, and the alcohol makes him hurt less. He’s been very open and honest about what is going on. I’m rooting for the guy.

  • Heidi

    I see the little boy syndrome in him but there is also alot of genuine love and kindness, and his heart is just torn up over all this. I hope he emerges more mature from rehab and I’d love to see these two kids work it out.

    • etm

      Great comment. I hope so too.

    • Karl

      Technically i think CC is the adult in their r/s… she’s always hinted at David’s childishness and youth. So i guess she just couldn’t take it anymore.

      • just sayin

        She chose him.

  • Michael

    Poor guy. I hope they can work out their problems, both individually and together.

  • whatevs

    Oh boohoo.

  • sfday

    I really feel for him – divorce can be absolutely horrible – none of us know how we will react until it happens to us. I hope he finds some peace and comfort, for his and his whole family’s sake.

      Rolyat10 octobre 2010De maiuavs gofbt, je ne sais pas mais e7a marque, c’est clair et je pense que c’est le but, on en e9coute le message de David Arquette avec deux fois plus d’attention en fin de compte.

  • Zach

    I don’t think it’s as simple as blaming his alcoholism on the breakup. I know they were separated for some time before they made it public, but I think these issues might have prefaced and even led to the breakup.

    • Angie

      There has been no indication that there were drugs or alcohol involved before their separation. Based upon past articles from long ago – before they were married, Courtney told David he had to stay clean or they would break up. Based upon the announcements since their separation, it seems like she wants him to be more adult in their relationship. My guess is that she bears the greater responsibilities in their family and in their production company and is wanting a more equal partner.

      • Monte Hall

        Then she should have chosen more wisely.

  • Mae

    he’s only 39? i wish him a good recovery – for him and his family

  • Angie

    I’m glad he decided to get help before his problems became worse. A seperation is a big stressor and it would challenge any addict Not fall back on old habits – even people who have been ‘dry’ for multiple decades can have set backs. Hope he finds the strength to beat back his demons again.

  • Summer Bay

    I really hope Dewey dies in Scream 4.

  • Richard Christy

    Therapy? is mah favorite death metalband!
