It's officially over for Zooey Deschanel and musician Ben Gibbard.

The pair, who married in September 2009, are officially divorced as of December 12 according to court documents filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court.

According to the documents, "unhappy and irreconcilable differences have arisen between the parties, which have caused the irremediable breakdown of their marriage. There is no possibility that counseling...or mediation could save the marriage," according to People magazine.
