Courteney Cox calls off her engagement

The Friends star and her musician beau have called it quits after a 17-month engagement

Courteney Cox and Johnny McDaid have reportedly ended their relationship after being engaged for over a year.
The couple dated for just six months before Snow Patrol guitarist Johnny popped the question in June 2014, and there are multiple claims the two of them had been battling problems long before this sad news.

Courteney, 51, and Johnny, 39, kept a low profile in recent months and were last photographed in public together back in August. Courteney shared a picture of her beau with fans on Twitter in September, but Johnny has been conspicuously absent from her social media pages since then.
The couple’s relationship reportedly hit the rocks over their different approaches to fame, with Courteney keen to go out with her friends while Johnny was more interested in avoiding the paparazzi.
According to Hollywood Life, the pair had previously attended counselling in an attempt to work through their issues, but the decision to split came as a surprise to Courteney.
“He just decided to separate. He hasn’t really given a reason, but mainly said he wants to focus on his music and can’t take the fighting,” a source told the media outlet.
Courteney was previously married to actor David Arquette from 1999-2013 and the two share a daughter, 11-year-old Coco.
