Zooey Deschanel and Jacob Pechenik: Divorce after four years of marriage

New phase of life for the "new girl"

Sad news for fans of Zooey Deschanel (39): The "New Girl" actress and her longtime companion file for divorce. The two were married for four years. Last year, the actress even had a $ 5.5 million house built, also catering to Jacob's needs. Now it's all over, as both have revealed in an official statement to “E-News”.

Zooey and Jacob prefer to be business partners rather than married people

This divorce was probably decided very rationally. The statement says: "After extensive discussion and careful consideration, we came to the conclusion that we function better as friends, business partners and parents than as life partners." For business together, we want to continue to get along - and also for their children, Zooey and Jacob want to stick together in the future as well.
