Court records show Courteney Cox and David Arquette have finalised their divorce.

A Los Angeles judge approved the couple's break-up on Tuesday after nearly 14 years of marriage. Details of their divorce settlement are confidential.

Cox and Arquette legally separated on December 31, 2011, about six months before the pair filed for divorce. The couple met while filming Scream and announced their split in October 2010.

At the time, they said they were committed to raising their daughter together and remained best friends.

Cox gained widespread fame for her role on the TV comedy Friends. Arquette was an executive producer of her recent series Cougar Town and has appeared in numerous films, including Never Been Kissed.
