David Arquette is NOT giving away his ex-wife Courteney Cox no matter how many times the false claim reappears. As Gossip Cop exclusively reported two weeks ago, it’s NOT true. It was wrong then and it is still wrong, regardless of who’s dusting off the debunked rumor and ridiculously passing it off as news.

The inaccurate claim began in the pages of the magazine Closer, and was then spread by a number of outlets, including the Belfast Telegraph. According to the off-base reports, Cox asked Arquette to “give her away” when she weds Snow Patrol rocker Johnny McDaid because they remain “close” and “happy” for each other. The so-called source for the original piece alleged McDaid thought his fiancee and Arquette’s friendship was “odd at first, but Courteney gave him a list of heartfelt reasons why she wanted him to walk her down the aisle, and now he has a deeper understanding of their relationship.”

It’s true that Arquette and Cox have a good relationship, especially since they co-parent their daughter Coco. But the rest of the claims are completely fictitious. Cox never asked Arquette to “walk her down the aisle” nor was there ever a conversation with McDaid about this imaginary scenario. Still, Gossip Cop went back to our sources to double and triple-check the rumor, and we’re again told flat out, “It’s not true.”
