â€œNew Girlâ€ star Zooey Deschanel and her husband, rocker Ben Gibbard, who tied the knot in September 2009, have amicable and mutually decided to separate, the actressâ€™ rep confirmed.
“It was mutual and amicable,” a source adds. “There was no third party involved. The intention is to move forward with a divorce.”
The 31 year-old, who recently had the honor of singing the National Anthem at a World Series game (watch video here), and the 34 year-old Death Cab for Cutie frontman met through their music manager three years ago and hit it off.
When asked about the trials and tribulations of married life, Zooey said, â€œYou can’t expect to make no effort. You still have to make the effort and be kind and understanding. It sort of just solidifies your commitment.â€ Hopefully, thereâ€™s still hope for reconciliation for Ben and Zooey.
