By Scott Lapatine / November 1, 2011

In the closest to home indie breakup news since Thurston & Kim called it quits, Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard and She & Him’s Zooey Deschanel have split up. Deschanel’s rep confirmed the news to US Weekly, who quotes a source that says “it was mutual and amicable” and “there was no third party involved.” The couple were married near Seattle in September 2009.
