The internet was abuzz when quirky and adorable actress Zooey Deschanel and her husband since 2009 Ben Gibbard announced they were separating in late October. The separation papers cited irreconcilable differences and although Zooey is on top of her game right now, scoring a Golden Globe nomination for her hit freshman comedy New Girl, she has decided to officially end her marriage.

Deschanel has also requested that the court terminate her requirement to pay spousal support. It looks like this indie match made in heaven has headed right down the path of Zooey’s look alike, Katy Perry who is also going through a Holiday Season divorce. Both couples looked like an offbeat match made in heaven but it looks like things just aren’t that simple.

What do you think of all of the dramatic changes in relationship status? Big break ups and about one thousand celebrity engagements have definitely started 2012 off on an interesting note! Let us know your thoughts on twitter!
