Actress Zooey Deschanel (star of New Girl) and Local Band “Death Cab for Cutie” Singer Ben Gibbard are officially divorced. The couple filed a petition to end their two-year marriage back in January, citing irreconcilable differences. TMZ.com says a judge finalized the divorce last week. G
Neither Gibbard nor Deschanel have said much about the break-up, although it has been described as “mutual and amicable.” Gibbard also recently told “Rolling Stone” that the lyrics on his new solo album, “Former Lives,” aren’t necessarily about the divorce. He says events in his personal life lead people to assume “some pronouns refer to certain people,” but those assumptions are “dead wrong” “99 times out of 100.” Gibbard released his first solo album, “Former Lives,” in October.
