Zooey Deschanel Joins the Divorcee Club


Not to be overshadowed by the Kardashian-Humphries Hoopla, the New Girl star Zooey Deschanel also pulled the cord on her marriage with musician husband Ben Gibbard.

A Day after Kardashian filed for divorce, Ms. Deschanel filed for her divorce too. A rep for the (500) days of Summer actress confirms to PEOPLE that the couple had indeed ended their two years of marriage.
“It’s amicable, it’s mutual. The intention is to move forward with a divorce,” said a source close to the couple.

Zooey, the younger sister of Bones protagonist Emily Deschanel, became engaged to “Death Cab for Cutie” front man Ben Gibbard in 2008. The pair eventually tied the knot in September 2009 in a ceremony near Seattle, Washington. It is the first marriage for Deschanel.

Zooey, who also appeared in romantic-comedy films Failure to Launch and Yes man, currently stars in FOX’s hit comedy “New Girl”, which tells the amusing tale of a quirky “freshly” single young woman, Jess, who moves into an apartment loft with three single men.

Deschanel recently figured in a public spat with L.A. Times after the paper reported that she allegedly made a very disparaging remark about downtown Los Angeles when the Royal Couple flew in for a visit.
