I thought Courteney Cox was cheating on me, says David Arquette

Washington: In a candid TV interview with Oprah Winfrey, David Arquette revealed that he feared his wife Courteney Cox was cheating on him as their 11-year marriage began to fall apart last summer.

The estranged couple was separated for months before news leaked about the break-up.

And Arquette has revealed that he felt sure Cox had found another man.

“She said, ``I don`t want to be your mother anymore``... (and then) she came down (stairs) really depressed one day, and was like, ``I`m really just not happy,” a website quoted him as saying.

"I felt really sort of abandoned at that point. A deal is a deal... I was angry with... the dynamic of our relationship. I was angry with my wife.

"And there were tabloid stories coming out about her and someone on her (TV) show (Cougar Town) having, you know an affair... I thought she was having an affair with someone," he added.
