I’m fearful for David Arquette! Rumor has it he’s fallen off the wagon – and in a big way. A little background…back in 2011, Arquette sat down with Oprah, and discussed his abusive childhood, and admitted he began drinking at age 12. His marriage to Courteney Cox crumbled, and he entered rehab early in 2011 after she staged an intervention. He told Oprah that he was focusing on staying clean, and as of early 2012 admitted to being sober for a year.
RadarOnline is reporting that David is back to drinking and partying:
Local indie R&B producer Somnate, aka Nathan Keeyes, spotted David drinking solo at Popkins Tavern in Richmond, VA on Saturday night. “It was so random,” he tells RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview. “He was literally the only dude siting at the bar, by himself. I wouldn’t have recognized him if my friend hadn’t. He didn’t look too good. Much older.”
“He was so f***d up,” Somnate says. “I don’t know what number he was on, but he smelled like alcohol and he was slurring his words.”
A bar employee confirms to RadarOnline.com that the 41-yer-old Scream star was drinking a significant amount of Macallan 18 Scotch, which retails at around $165 per bottle. “He was very good for us,” the source laughed, referencing the drink’s price tag. “We hope he’ll come in again!” CONTINUE READING (NEW PICTURE OF HIS 9-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER COCO!)
Somnate adds: “David bought me and my two friends tequila shots as soon as we sat down. But he told us he didn’t take shots. He just kept ordering his drinks.”
Soon, David was joined by a group of locals who had met David the night before.
“One of them was telling this story about how it was his 21st birthday and David took him to the strip club,” Somnate reveals. “David literally got all these strippers to drag the kid onto the floor and start dancing on him.” [A dancer at Club Rouge confirmed David was at the club Friday night.]
Not long after, David decided to take his posse to the nearby Paper Moon strip club.
“He was like, you guys should come to the strip club with us!” says Somnate. “We were like, ‘Woah. That’s crazy!’ We did not expect him to say that.”
“David was like ‘I’ll pay the fee for you so you guys can just get in. So we went there and he got a few drinks.”
Leaving his entourage to enjoy the club, David “was talking to girls left and right,” Somnate says. “He had all these girls hanging on him. Random girls were walking up to him being like, ‘Are you David Arquette?’ Dude was loving it.”
I really hope he isn’t spiraling out of control again. I’ve always really liked the guy, and secretly hoped he and Courteney would get back together.
Speaking of Courteney – look how old their daughter is? Coco is 9 now! Courteney shared this picture on her Twitter page, as she celebrated her 49th birthday on June 15.
