Zooey Deschanel files for divorce

She's filed for divorce

Mrs Carter: The papers have been filed and Zooey is back on the market

It always seems that when one part of your life is taking off, another part of your life finds itself in trouble.

Zooey Deschanel’s career is on fire right now with her brand new hit show ‘The New Girl’ and her Golden Globe nomination, but it seems that her personal life has unfortunately taken a turn for the worse.

Deschanel and her husband Ben Gibbard separated in October of 2011 and if you were one of the many fans that were hoping that these two would find a way to work through their problems and get back together, you’re going to be unhappy to hear that on December 27th Zooey filed for divorce.

According to People Magazine, the separation date listed on the papers was October 31, 2011 and ‘irreconcilable differences’ are cited as the reason for divorce.

Zooey and Ben have been pretty tight lipped when it comes to talking about the end of their marriage, but Deschanel has said “We’re friendly.  It’s all fine.”
