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

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

Cox and Arquette legally separated on Dec. 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, who grew up in Mountain Brook, a wealthy suburb of Birmingham, 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."

The website for People magazine was first to report Wednesday that the divorce is final.
