New Report: Courteney Cox 'In Love' With 'Cougar Town' Co-Star Brian Van Holt! The Real Reason For Split From David Arquette?

Courteney and Brian’s fling was reportedly kept hush-hush because the news hadn’t broken about her and David’s split. But now it’s out in the open, and Courteney is said to be ‘in love!’

Oh no! Way before her separation from husband David Arquette, Courteney Cox was falling for another man — her Cougar Town co-star Brian Van Holt, 41. “She is smitten and in love with this man, almost besotted,” a source tells “He seems to be providing something that David didn’t during the marriage.”

“They’ve been secretly dating for some time,” the source continues. “And now that the split with David is official, time will tell if the relationship may well get even more serious. … Courteney doesn’t believe she was cheating on David because they had been leading separate lives for some time.”

Courteney, 46, and David, 39, called it quits after 11 years of marriage. Prior to their separation, the couple allegedly wanted a second child — their daughter, Coco Riley Arquette, is now 6 years old — but faced a series of miscarriages and rounds of fertility treatments.

Courteney’s estranged husband also admitted to having a physical relationship with waitress Jasmine Waltz. “My sexual encounter made me feel pretty manly,” David told Howard Stern on Oct. 12.
