Is Courteney Cox About To Take Her Relationship Public?

Courteney Cox has been linked to her Cougar Town co-star Brian Van Holt roughly 600 times since she split from David Arquette, but both parties have always denied any romantic involvement. Of course, they are actually getting it on behind the scenes and apparently they’re about to go public. Why now? Who knows? Who cares?

From US Weekly:

“They’ve been going out for about six months,” one insider tells Us of the couple, who have been linked off and on since Cox split from actor David Arquette in 2010. (Arquette once told Howard Stern that his ex and Van Holt were having “an emotional affair.”)

The source adds that Cox is more comfortable taking her relationship with Van Holt out in the open now that Arquette has moved on with girlfriend Christina McLarty. Proof? On July 10, the costars “acted like boyfriend and girlfriend” during dinner at West Hollywood’s Chi Lin, a witness tells Us.

Van Holt is also tight with Cox’s pals and, more importantly, with her daughter. “The girl was extremely comfortable with Brian,” an onlooker says of Coco, 9, who visited the Cougar Town set last fall. “She treated him like a dad or an uncle.”

Well, that’s… nice? I mean, her divorce is official now, so I guess I can sort of see why she waited to be public. Still, David has been dating for ages, so I’m not sure why it really matters. Then again, Courteney is a little crazy. Brian does need to schedule a nice romantic date with a razor, though. That scruff… no.
