After four years of marriage, the New Girl star Zooey Deschanel, and the film producer Jacob Pechenik, are back to being single soon after Pechenik, 47, filed for divorce. He also asked to have joint legal and physical custody of their two children, Elsie Otter Pechenik and Charlie Wolf Pechenik, last Tuesday in Los Angeles.
According to the 47-year-old film producer, they have decided to split up due to their conflicting differences with one another and it took a lot of contemplation and discussion for the two parties to finally decide that they are better off as friends, business partners, and co-parents than being life-long partners.
Deschanel and Pechenik announced their split in early September of this year and a day prior to Pechenik’s filing for divorce, the actress made her relationship with the Property Brothers star, Jonathan Scott, official.
She turned to Instagram to confirm that they are indeed dating. She posted a photo with Scott when they were out having an early Halloween celebration at Universal Studios together with his brother, Drew Scott, and his girlfriend, Linda Phan. The couple both shared their photos on social media, showing how they enjoyed and had fun on their celebration for the spooky season.
The 39-year-old actress and singer was reportedly seen holding hands with Scott after only a week of being separated from her husband. It sparked rumors about their growing romance. The new couple was reported to have met during the filming for James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke series wherein Scott and Deschanel were accompanied by their siblings, Emily Deschanel, and Drew Scott, respectively. Now that they have made their relationship official, fans can expect to see a lot of photos and videos of the two together.- Advertisement -
In the meantime, both Zooey Deschanel and her former husband, Pechenik, expressed their gratitude to everybody especially their fans for giving them privacy. Presently, the two are trying to focus on moving on to the new chapter of their lives. They are currently trying their best to commit to their business, their values, and their two children who mean the world to them.
In such way, the couple joined the list of celebrity couples who are not together anymore. Zooey Deschanel and Jacob Pechenik are not the first couple to break up recently. As it was reported earlier, Dave and Odette Annable decided to split after 9 years together. And another celebrity couple Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott are also taking a break.
