There’s a new guy for New Girl Zooey Deschanel. After two years together, the 34-year-old actress and boyfriend Jamie Linden have gone their separate ways, sources tell Us Weekly.


In a strange way, this is actually kind of good news since Z was spotted nuzzling up to a dude who wasn’t Jamie just last month. Photos of Zooey locking lips with film producer Jacob Pechenik surfaced in July; the two were on the set of Jacob’s new film Rock the Kasbah, in which Zooey stars alongside the likes of Bruce Willis, Kate Hudson, and Bill Murray.

Then, last weekend, Zooey and Jacob were spotted out together once again, grabbing lunch and looking all kinds of couple-y.

Where the line falls between Zooey and Jamie calling it quits and Zooey picking up with the new guy, we’re not so sure. She and the screenwriter first started dating in June 2012, the year after she and ex-husband Ben Gibbard announced their separation after two years of marriage. Whatever’s going on these days, we just hope the two parted on OK terms.

Are you surprised Zooey and Jamie broke up? What do you think of the new guy? We’re all ears in the comments below.
