Zooey Deschanel has officially divorced Ben Gibbard, the American indie rock singer with Death Cab For Cutie. The New Girl actress filed for divorce in January, citing "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split. They married in 2009 and have no children together.

According to TMZ.com, a judge signed off the divorce on December 12, 2012, with both waving their rights to spousal support. The move kind of makes sense given both are pretty well off financially. Gibbard's group are on their seventh studio album and have a popular following, while Deschanel has risen to become one of the most popular actresses in the U.S. and beyond. Her Fox comedy New Girl has received impressive ratings and reviews, and she remains in-demand in Hollywood. During the divorce filing earlier this month, Zooey's lawyer found it necessary to attach her income and expense declaration, which confirmed her healthy financial state. She makes an average of $95,000 a month though spends only $22,500. She has three credit cards all of which have a zero balance, and has $1,578,000 in the bank. The actress also has an additional $1,645,000 in stocks and bonds and has property worth $693,000. The documents revealed that Zooey spends around $1,000 a month on groceries and household supplies, $500 on eating out, $800 on utilities, $300 on phone and email accounts, $600 in laundry and, of course, $2,000 on clothes. 

Oh, and she also donates $1,500 a month to charity.
