David Arquette Suffers Relapse
Troubled actor David Arquette has taken a nasty fall off the wagon.
In a radio interview with The Howard Stern Show Monday, the Scream star admitted that he’s no longer sober after a two-and-a-half year stretch of sobriety. The actor sought treatment for alcohol abuse in January 2011 following his split from then-wife Courteney Cox.
When asked by Howard if his recent divorce from Cox — the mother of David’s nine-year-old daughter Coco — influenced his relapse, David insisted the exes get along just fine.
“Courteney’s super cool. Everybody’s getting along and understanding. We’re being kind and loving to each other.”
The star has been in a relationship with Entertainment Tonight reporter Christina McLarty since 2011 and notes that she is also supportive of him.
“My girlfriend’s cool. She supports me. She’s cool.”
When questioned as to whether or not his relapse into alcoholism had anything to do with with his being let go from the new film Something About Her, the actor claimed the parting was mutual and that the director was simply not happy with his performance, having his own vision for the film.
“Whatever I do, I’m gonna do; I’m gonna go through this journey and figure out my life. I’m a responsible person, I have my daughter three days a week…I’m incredibly responsible…I’m living my life and I’m trying not to hurt people.”
