No longer Friends - Courteney Cox and Johnny McDaid have reportedly split after an 18 month engagement

Another bad day for Hollywood love – Courteney Cox has reportedly split from rocker fiancé Johnny McDaid after an 18-month engagement.

According to US site TMZ, the Snow Patrol guitarist flew back to the UK shortly before Thanksgiving (November 26th), after moving all of his belongings out of Courteney’s California homes.

The gossip site claims that their differing lifestyle choices added to the strain of their relationship – while Courteney enjoys going out with friends, it is believed that Johnny is more low-key and private.

Unfortunately, more reports claim that the split comes after counselling sessions to save their relationship failed – and now, they’ve mutually decided to end things.


A source speaking to Hollywood Life reports that the Friends star isextremely upset’ about the breakup, and has not been wearing her engagement ring recently.

The couple were first linked in December 2013 where they were spotted at Jennifer Aniston‘s LA holiday party. They were introduced by an unexpected mutual friend – Ed Sheeran, who stayed rent-free at Courteney’s Malibu beach house for a few months in 2013.

After a whirlwind six months of dating, they announced their engagement with the cutest matching tweets: Courteney posted ‘I’m engaged to him!’ while Johnny wrote ‘I’m engaged to her!’, with both tweets containing a picture of the two.

The last time the couple were publically pictured together was in August, but Courteney tweeted a picture of them cuddled together in September, captioned only with a love heart.

Say it isn’t so, guys?!
