    That sucks. They were so cute together. I hope she doesn’t turn into one of those hollywood girls. I’m still surprised she went to Kate’s halloween party.

    This is reported by US Weekly, which makes me skeptical because they suck. I hope it’s not true.

    Their rep confirmed it to Us Weekly as well as some other publications so it’s true. Sucks to hear though.

    They always say there are three deaths in Hollywood. Guess you can count that ruling for divorces now. Gee, who’s next?

    Oh, wow, I had no idea she was married! She looks so young. I feel bad for them you know, as long as they didn’t break up because abuse or anything physical, but I guess you can’t force love nowadays.

    That’s unexpected. I’m following them on Twitter and they both seemed so happy and in love pretty recently (like a few weeks ago ago). She was writing how lucky she was and what a great husband she had or joking about him not letting her doing some weird stuff in their house (with re-decorating) , he was answering her in the same style and they seemed like a happy marriage. Something bad must have happened cause I can’t believe that someone can be so in love at one moment and then just fall out of love within a few weeks (unless they were faking their conversations wich would be weird).

    the old saying goes bad news comes in threes Kim Kardashians divorce the death of film director/producer Gilbert Cates & now Zoey and her husband separating. it’s sad but not surprising at all most marriages in hollywood don’t last

    sad. This i the average time for married couples in Hollywood though. Hope they are still friends!!
    …………… At least they were longer than Kim’s marriage.

    fake. they “seperated” for publicity………..her new show and everything…. just like Courtney Cox and her husband’s seperation. in reality they’re still together and most of the comments on here are posted by gay PR interns

    That’s unfortunate. I actually really like these two together.

    A bit of a bummer but on the upside it probably means a new Death Cab album will be on the horizon. Those emotions will have to go somewhere.

    too bad, I thought they were going to make it since she doen’t look like a hollywood girl

    She’s not stealing Kim KarTRASHian’s thunder.

    I’m sure they’ve been separated for a while. She hasn’t worn her ring in any of the New Girl press. That might not mean anything, though. But I had a feeling. They barely announced their marriage when it happened, so I’m glad this is going down pretty quietly too. They seem to enjoy their privacy.

    Yeah, I noticed she hasn’t worn her ring in the last few months. I did notice that Ben has been wearing his though. I went to a Death Cab concert in Oct. and he was still wearing it then… Kind of strange.
