Zooey Deschanel

Files for Divorce --

We Broke Up on Halloween

1/4/2012 3:54 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Zooey Deschanel & Ben Gibbard
Zooey Deschanel
has decided to end her marriage ... two months after separating from her rock star husband Ben Gibbard ... TMZ has learned.

The "New Girl" star filed the divorce docs in L.A. County Superior Court on December 27 -- blaming the split on "irreconcilable differences."

She also lists the official date of separation as October 31 ... Halloween.

Deschanel and Gibbard -- lead singer for the band Death Cab for Cutie -- were married in 2009. They have no kids.

For some reason, Zooey's lawyer attached the singer's income and expense declaration ... and she's both filthy rich and shockingly thrifty.

Maybe he got sick of how ridiculous she is/has become. Can you imagine trying to go out to dinner with this girl? Let's see... we need some place organic, has to be organic... *looks for organic restaurant* Oh, and don't forget, I'm a vegan *sigh... look for organic vegan* Honey, make sure they have a gluten free menu *how about we stay home and have soup? You just know she has skin allergies by looking at her, she's also probably one of those that will walk in a room and insist there is some smell that grosses them out, that is undetectable to anyone else.
She just needs to adopt about 10 cats and call it good.

Of course it could have also been because she's been boning Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Never got the appeal of Zooey, her sister is a much better actor then her, and She looks like the tween version of Katy Perry without the enormous rack. So why's she relevant?

YES! There is not hope for me. Or there is hope for Joseph Gordon-Levitt, maybe.

I was at a party with Ben on New Years and he seemed fine. A bit overdressed, but fine.
