Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard separate

By Sam Rock in Arts & Culture

Indie music's most famous couple has decided to break up.

The two were wed in September 2009 in Gibbard's native Seattle, Washington, and separated this afternoon (November 1st).

One of Zooey Deschanel's representatives confirmed to Us Weekly that she and Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard have "separated amicably and mutually." The source also added that there was no affiliated third party.

The two had very busy work schedules lately—Gibbard had been working on DCFC's latest album Codes and Keys while Deschanel had been recording a Christmas album with her folk band She Him and acting in the FOX sitcom New Girl.
