This week, as if one Hollywood split wasn’t enough, “New Girl” star, Zooey Deschanel has announced she is splitting with her husband.

Deschanel’s rep confirmed to Us Weekly, that after just two years together, Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard have separated.

The 31-year-old and her 35-year-old husband, Death Cab for Cutie frontman got married in Washington back in September 2009.

According to the Associated Press, Deschanel’s publicist Lauren Auslander confirmed Tuesday the couple has separated and describes the split as “amicable,” with “no third party involved.”

Deschanel is best known for her role in Fox hit show, “New Girl,” and previous roles like in “(500) Days Of Summer.”

This split follows another Hollywood split that went public this week. Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kris Humphries a mere 72 days after they said “I do” Monday.

The two wed on Aug. 20, in a wedding that cost a reported $20 million and included over 400 guests. The storybook ceremony was televised as a two-part special on E!.

Kardashian reportedly blindsided the NBA player with divorce papers.

“I’m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents,” Humphries told TMZ. “I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce … I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.”

“All of us at E! are surprised and saddened by this news, and we send our support to Kim and Kris at this difficult time. The Kardashians have always been uniquely open with all aspects of their lives from joyous events to intimate moments to heartbreaking transitions. E! will continue to share the fascinating real lives and larger-than-life existence of this close-knit family,” said E! in a statement.
