Zooey Deschanel has confirmed that her marriage to Death Cab For Cutie singer Ben Gibbard is over.

Zooey Deschanel is a strange one. Young, beautiful, talented and female the criticism made against her comes almost by rote, the usual reaction of a patriarchal society against a fast rising star.

However the actress turned singer really seems to rub people up the wrong way. Recently slated for criticising downtown LA, Deschanel followed this with a widely criticised rendition of 'The Star Spangled Banner' at the World Series.

Now Zooey Deschanel has confirmed that her marriage to Death Cab For Cutie singer Ben Gibbard is over. The pair are to divorce, with the US Weekly reporting that no one else is involved.

"It was mutual and amicable. There was no third party involved" stated a source close to the couple.

The pair certainly have a lot on their plate. Zooey Deschanel forms one half of She & Him alongside M Ward, with the pair recently completing work on a seasonal collection. 'A Very She & Him Christmas' sits in the great tradition of festive albums, containing a raft of classic tracks.

Ben Gibbard, meanwhile, is back working with Death Cab For Cutie. The indie rock juggernaut have outlined plans to tour the UK, with the Seattle band planning to launch their latest tour later this month.

Opening with a London show, Death Cab For Cutie will play shows in Birmingham, Leeds and Glasgow.

Tickets are on sale now.

Death Cab For Cutie are set to play the following shows:

November
16 London Hammersmith Apollo
17 Leeds O2 Academy
18 Birmingham Ballroom
