Courteney Cox is NOT Dating “Cougar Town” Co-Star — or Anyone Else

Truth rating: 1

The gang at Hollyscoop is a little mixed up, confusing one Courteney Cox rumor with another.

And both are wrong.

The sloppy site claims that Cox has long had “strong feelings” for “Cougar Town” co-star Brian Van Holt, and uses a RadarOnline report to claim that “they’ve been secretly dating for some time.”

According to Hollyscoop, before she and David Arquette announced their separation this week, Cox was having “more than just a fling” with Van Holt.

There are two problems with this version of events.

One, she’s not dating Van Holt.

Two, RadarOnline, the outlet on which Hollyscoop bases its post, doesn’t link Cox to Van Holt.

Clearly, Hollyscoop didn’t read the story too carefully, because in capital letters RadarOnline writes that Cox’s alleged relationship is “with a DIFFERENT co-star” than Van Holt.


Actually, Cox is not dating anyone from “Cougar Town” — or anywhere else, for that matter.

A source close to Cox tells Gossip Cop that the actress and Van Holt happen to be “great friends,” but reiterates that Cox is not dating him or anyone else.
