Zooey Deschanel officially divorced

Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard

Zooey Deschanel's divorce from Ben Gibbard has been formally recognised in court.

The New Girl actress separated from the Death Cab for Cutie musician on Halloween, October 31 2011, citing "irreconcilable differences" as the cause of their split. She filed for divorce in December of last year.

People magazine reports that Zooey and Ben's marriage annulment was honoured last week on December 12 by the Los Angeles Superior Court.

The court documents reveal the reason behind the couple's split.

"Unhappy and irreconcilable differences have arisen between the parties, which have caused the irremediable breakdown of their marriage," the papers read.

"There is no possibility that counseling… or mediation could save the marriage."

Financial papers filed in Zooey's case obtained by TMZ last year show that she is worth $3 million and makes an average of $95,000 a month.

It is unknown whether spousal support was decreed.

Virgo:

It's difficult to deal with a highly competitive colleague. Every time you submit work, they try to find ways to outperform you. Although you have no interest in pitting your talent against theirs, this other person thinks very differently. Ignoring them won't be possible. A good way to disarm this pest is to invite them out for coffee. Describe what you've observed and ask for a truce. Irrational people are often thrown off balance when their behaviour is addressed in a direct manner.More
