Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard call it quits

Gentlemen, Zooey is once again single!

Couples are splitting up left and right. Yesterday we obsessed over Kim Kardashian’s split from Kris Humphries, and today, this saddens us:

America’s newest it-girl, Zooey Deschanel, and her husband, Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie have split.

The couple, which married two years ago in Seattle, announced the end of their marriage.

“It was mutual and amicable,” a source told US Weekly.

A representative for the couple confirmed that there was no third party involved.

The two met through their mutual manager three years ago.

In an interview with New York Magazing, Gibbard said, “I was just awestruck that she was even talking to me.”

There’s no doubt the two must be busy lately. Deschanel stars in Fox’s ‘New Girl’ while Death Cab for Cutie recently released their latest album, ‘Codes and Keys.’

On a positive note, maybe this will inspire both Deschanel and Gibbard to head back into the recording studio. It’s been a while since we’ve heard an awfully depressing Death Cab album. We’re talking about  ‘Transatlanticism’ sad.

We also encourage Deschanel, who is half of the band She & Him, to start writing again. Her second album ‘Volume 2’ was a little too lovey-dovey for our liking, so we’re banking on ‘Volume 3.’ Come on, Zooey, let the music express your pain.   

If there was a celebrity couple we were rooting for it was definitely Deschanel and Gibbard. How can we ever believe in love again?
