Zooey Deschanel Finalises Divorce From Ben Gibbard


New Girl star Zooey Deschanel is young, free and single once more after her divorce from Ben Gibbard was finalised in court.

The 32-year-old actress filed for divorce from the Death Cab for Cutie frontman nearly a year ago, and on Wednesday 12 December, the split was finalised, reports Us Weekly.

Los Angeles Superior Court documents show that Zooey cited ‘irreconcilable differences’ as the reasons for her split from the musician.

Bother of the stars have remained fairly quiet on the split, but Gibbard gave an interview just before the split with New York magazine, where he gushed over his then-wife.

“I’d seen her movies, and obviously I thought she was very beautiful. I was just awestruck that she was even talking to me,” he told the magazine.

The She and Him singer already has a new man in her life. The actress has been seen with screenwriter Jamie Linden.

The man behind the ‘Dear John’, ‘We Are Marshall’ and ’10 Years’ and Zooey are said to be having a good time together.

“Jamie’s a really nice guy,” an insider told Us Weekly. “He’s funny, and a little geeky… he’s into her!”
