She And Him's Zooey Deschanel and Death Cab For Cutie's Ben Gibbard's divorce has been finalised.

The musical couple filed for divorce on December 27, 2011 with the Los Angeles County Superior Court. The papers listed the date of their separation as October 31, 2011 and cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for their break up. The pair tied the knot in December 2009.

A judge signed off the divorce last week on December 12, reports TMZ.

The divorce documents state that both parties waved their rights to spousal support.

Deschanel is currently starring in Channel 4 sitcom New Girl whilst Gibbard released his first solo album, 'Former Lives’, last month. Gibbard said that some of the lyrics on the album were inspired by his relationship with Deschanel.

He said of the content of the album: "These songs span eight years, three relationships, living in two different places, drinking then not drinking. They're a side story, not a new chapter."

When the pair's divorce papers were filed, Deschanel told People magazine: "We're friendly… It's all fine."

At the time of their split a source close to the pair reportedly said: "It was mutual and amicable. There was no third party involved."

She And Him will release a Christmas single, a cover of 'Baby, It's Cold Outside', on December 24. Scroll down to watch the animated video.
