courteney-cox-david-arquette-getty.jpgDespite the fact that he went totally TMI after announcing their divorce, David Arquette's soon-to-be ex-wife Courteney Cox was quick to jump into his corner after his rep confirmed that the'd checked into a rehabilitation program for his struggles with alcohol and depression.

"I really admire David and his choice to take charge and better his life," says Cox, in a statement to People. "I love and support him."

A friend of Arquette's tells the mag that his split with Cox, with whom Arquette has a six-year-old daughter, Coco, has been hard on the actor. "He's just not handling this situation well," the source said. "He's really depressed."

We're glad to hear that Cox is supportive. The former couple will appear together in this spring's "Scream 4," reprising the roles that they were playing when they met in 1996 on the set of "Scream."
