Zooey Deschanel hurt by gossip about financial records

Zooey Deschanel felt violated following her divorce from Ben Gibbard last year (12) after her financial records were splashed across the Internet.

The New Girl star's marriage to the Death Cab for Cutie rocker was officially dissolved in December (12) and as part of the proceedings, she had to publicly state her income and all of her expenses, including credit card balances.


Gossip bloggers obtained the records and posted the figures online for all to see, and Deschanel admits she was left hurt by the invasion of privacy.


Reports at the time suggested her legal representative was to blame for the numbers becoming public, but the actress insists he was just doing his job.


She tells Marie Claire magazine, "Here's the thing about that. It is the law that you provide financial records, and they are public record.


"A lot of people said my lawyer made a mistake, and I want to say that my lawyer is a great lawyer, and he did not make a mistake.


"It felt weird, but I feel OK about how I've handles my finances. It felt like a violation, but once you get over it, you go, 'Well, if it's out there, it's out there.'"


Deschanel has since moved on to date Dear John screenwriter Jamie Linden.

I remember when her financial records were released - she is completely debt free or something and owns her home outright and I think that's why it made news.

Here was the rough breakdown.  I think it just totally shocked people.

I'd expect her to be debt free, if she wasn't there's no excuse when you make that kind of money.
