Washington: The reason word got out that former ‘Friends’ star Courteney Cox and David Arquette have parted ways is because pictures have surfaced of David and a woman with whom he has been intimate.

The woman in question is Jasmine Waltz, who punched Lindsay Lohan on the ‘Mean Girls’ star’s birthday a few months back.

According to sources, David started dating Jasmine after he and Courteney had separated and agreed to see other people.

However, a divorce is by no means a done deal.

The couple has been living apart for several months, but there is a "real possibility" they could get back together.

"It`s a work in progress," Tmz.com quoted a source as saying.

As for why they separated, one source simply said, "Life".
