Not too sure how reliable of a source US Magazine is sometimes, but they’re reporting star of The New Girl Zooey Deschanel is calling it quits with hubby Ben Gibbard after only 2 years of marriage. It’s kind of ironic her new show is about a young single woman trying to start over after a pretty nasty break-up.
This comes just one day after another gorgeous brunette, Kim Kardashian announces her split with Kris Humphries. Now, I’m sure Zooey and Ben had a real relationship, you know, one that wasn’t forced upon by executive producers, so the two must be in distraught right now.
Zooey and Ben got married in Seattle of ’09 and are now going through what sources call a “mutual and amicable” divorce.
It’s a real shame to see real marriages like these cut short. When Zooey and Ben first started dating, everyone expected them to last forever because they’re both quirky, have great taste in music (he leads Death Cab For Cutie, she fronts She and Him) and are great conversationalists, among many other reasons. They were a pretty private couple, so I don’t expect them to hold press conferences or write tell-all books — coughcough Kim Kardashian coughcough — about this heartbreaking ordeal.
Remember, when one marriage fails, a drunken rebound is just around the corner. And we’ll be there to report all about it.
