‘New Girl’: Zooey Deschanel, Ben Gibbard divorce finalized

Zooey DeschanelMrs Carter: There’s a new girl on the market and it’s Zooey!

It has been a over a year since “New Girl” star Zooey Deschanel filed to end her marriage from “Death Cab for Cutie” rocker Ben Gibbard and after a very long wait, the divorce has finally gone through.  According to People magazine Zooey and Ben’s divorce became official on Wednesday, December 12 according to documents filed in  Los Angeles Superior Court.  As for the reason given for ending their marriage – the court documents stated: “Unhappy and irreconcilable differences have arisen between the parties, which have caused the irremediable breakdown of their marriage. There is no possibility that counseling … or mediation could save the marriage.”

Deschanel and Gibbard have been fairly quiet when it comes to talking to the media about their split, but the actress assured fans that they are “friendly” and that “it’s all fine” – other then that the pair have kept their divorce very private. Deschanel and Gibbard were married in 2009 and they officially split in October 2011.

It’s always hard to end a marriage, but things are often made more difficult when one or both parties put their anger and hurt feelings into the divorce dragging it out as they go 50 rounds over who gets the frying pan, so when we hear about divorces like Zooey and Ben’s it reminds us that things can be settled amicably without doing any further damage to the one you love.
