Zooey Deschanel’s estranged husband has filed for divorce just days after the actress went public with her new romance.
The Elf star posted photos of herself and her new man, Jonathan Scott, on Instagram last week (ends18Oct19) and now Jacob Pechenik wants to officially end his four-year marriage, according to documents obtained by The Blast.
Zooey and the producer separated earlier this year, releasing a joint statement, which read: “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.”
Deschanel and Pechenik, who wed in 2015, are parents to two children, daughter, Elsie Otter, four and two-year-old Charlie Wolf.
Zooey, who fell for her new boyfriend – the star of reality show Property Brothers – on an episode of Carpool Karaoke, was previously married to Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard. They divorced in 2012.
