Watch out world, Zooey Deschanel is back on the market! That’s right — a year after her split with Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard, the New Girl star and former So You Think You Can Dance guest judge has finalized her divorce. Single or married, she’s always adorkable!
It’s already been a year since Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard announced that they were splitting due to irreconcilable differences, or as the divorce papers put it, “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.”
Like most celebrity relationships, Zooey and Ben’s marriage was short lived. The two were first engaged in December of 2008 and then married the following year. They officially went their separate ways in October of 2011, but the divorce reportedly wasn’t finalized until last Wednesday.
So, how did Zooey Deschanel celebrate her newfound freedom? The actress really isn’t the partying type, but she did receive a nomination for a Golden Globe! On Thursday, she tweeted, “Holy moly!! Thank you @goldenglobes! I am over the moon with excitement!!! What a great start to the holidays!”
Divorce finalized, Golden Globe nominations…sounds like a great holiday season indeed. And according to rumors, Zooey might have a new boyfriend. The actress has been spotted holding hands with Jamie Linden, although there’s no public confirmation of their relationship as of yet. Perhaps they were keeping it under wraps until all the hassle with the divorce was over? We’ll have to wait and see, but meanwhile, we’re happy getting our usual dose of Nick and Jess drama on New Girl.
