Courteney Cox has revealed that she once thought her estranged husband David Arquette might secretly be gay after discovering an app purchase on her iTunes account.

"I went on to view the [iTunes] history to see what other songs that maybe David had been downloading because he's hip," the New York Daily News quoted the actress, as telling Jimmy Kimmel Live.

"And then it said 'Grindr: To find your same sex in your neighborhood.' And I was like, 'Wow. What if you actually don't know the person you've been with for that long? [I] wonder if David's buying Grindr,' " the Cougar Town star said.

Instead of going straight to the source, Cox first called her assistant, who is gay, to see if he possibly made a purchase on their account.

"He said, 'No.' And now I'm kind of shaking," she recalled.

Cox prodded her assistant some more, practically begging him to confess a purchase.

She said she asked him, "'tell me you bought one thing! You bought Grindr!' And he was like, 'Oh, no, yeah, that was a free app. Yeah, yeah, yeah.' "
