Zooey Deschanel and her husband, Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard, have separated.

Us Weekly got confirmation from the “New Girl” star’s rep that the couple — who married in September of 2009 — has called it quits.

The split between the singers — in addition to her acting, Deschanel also croons as one-half of the indie-folk duo She and Him — was reportedly mutual and amicable.

Unlike the Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries divorce, this is a severed celebrity relationship that we didn’t see coming and that makes us genuinely a little sad. Between this and the Thurston Moore/Kim Gordon split, we’re beginning to lose our faith in indie-rock marriages.
