Courteney Cox was snapped frolicking in the ocean off the coast of St. Barts with Hopkins, and gossips started suggesting the actress had moved on from her broken marriage to Aruqette with her TV pal.
But Arquette insists the media got it all wrong.
He says, "We're not together... but there are horrible articles.
"She went away to St. Barts with (daughter) Coco and her best friend and Josh from the show and I knew about all of this. But the tabloids make it like there's some kind of scandal going on.
"There's no scandal; we're really honest and open. We really care about each other."
