Judge finalises Deschanel divorce

The seal has been set on Zooey Deschanel’s divorce from her rocker husband of just over three years.

Los Angeles court records show a judge finalised the actress’ divorce from Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard on Wednesday.

Gibbard and Deschanel, who stars in Fox’s 'New Girl', were married in September 2009. They had no children together.

The actress filed for divorce in December 2011 after the couple separated two months earlier.

The judgment does not provide financial details of the break-up, although it states that the former couple’s marriage cannot be repaired by counselling or mediation.

Deschanel was nominated last week for a Golden Globe award for her work on New Girl.
