Actress Zooey Deschanel files for divorce

Thursday January 5, 2012

Zooey Deschanel is divorcing her rocker husband of two years.

The New Girl actress has filed for divorce from Ben Gibbard, citing irreconcilable differences, a month after the couple announced they had split up.

A spokesman for the 31-year-old, who was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for her performance in the sitcom, said the split is "amicable".

Ben is the lead singer of the rock band Death Cab For Cutie, who released their album Codes And Keys in May.

Zooey and Ben were married in September 2009 and have no children.
