Film producer Jacob Pechenik has filed for divorce from wife Zooey Deschanel after four years of marriage, according to court documents obtained by Page Six.
Pechenik, 47, filed a dissolution of marriage with minor children petition on Tuesday at the Stanley Mosk Courthouse in Los Angeles.
He and Deschanel, 39, share two children: Elsie Otter, 4, and Charlie Wolf, 2.
In September, the former couple confirmed they were separating in a joint statement to us.
“After much discussion and a long period of contemplation we have decided we are better off as friends, business partners and co-parents rather than life partners,” they said. “We remain committed to our business, our values and most of all our children.”
This will be Deschanel’s second divorce. She was previously married to Death Cab for Cutie lead singer Ben Gibbard for three years. They had no children together.
Less than a week after Deschanel’s most recent split from Pechenik, the “New Girl” star was spotted holding hands with “Property Brothers” star Jonathan Scott.
Earlier this month, the new couple made their television debut during a double date night on “Dancing With the Stars.”
Deschanel and Scott, 41, became Instagram official this week with a photo of a trip to Universal Studios Halloween Horror Night.
