Courteney Cox is not having her ex-husband David Arquette “give her away,” despite a new inaccurate report that was widely spread. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. Cox’s rep tells us it’s completely untrue.

According to a story that was first published in the magazine Closer, and then spread by publications like the Belfast Telegraph, Cox wants Arquette to walk her down the aisle when she exchanges vows with Snow Patrol rocker Johnny McDaid. A so-called “insider” for the tabloid magazine is quoted as saying, “[Cox’s] father passed away in 2001 and she’s been telling friends it feels natural for David to ‘give her away’ given how close they are and how happy they’ve been for each other to move on.”

In addition to oddly saying in normal conversation how the actress’ dad died “in 2001,” the magazine’s supposed “insider” further says that Cox’s daughter “Coco wants to be involved in the wedding, and Courteney knew how thrilled she’d be to have her dad playing such a big part.” The suspect “source” adds, “Johnny found [Cox and Arquette’s] friendship 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.”

This is all very heartwarming, but it’s entirely made up. Arquette is NOT giving Cox away at her wedding to Johnny McDaid. Cox’s rep exclusively tells Gossip Cop, “It’s not true at all.”
