Zooey Deschanel Finalizes Divorce

Last week, a Los Angeles judge finalized the divorce of Zooey Deschanel and estranged husband Ben Gibbard. Deschanel, who stars on the Fox sitcom “New Girl,” married the Death Cab for Cutie frontman in September 2009. They separated two years later and filed for divorce in December 2011, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the cause. According to the couple, their split was “mutual and amicable.”

While the financial details of the divorce are not public record, it appears that both Zooey and Ben agreed to waive their rights to spousal support. This seems reasonable considering they parted on amicable terms and both of them have substantial financial independence. Deschanel’s net worth is estimated to be approximately $3 million, while Gibbard’s band is quite successful.

The couple did not have any children, a fact which likely served to further simplify their divorce process.
