New Girl actress Zooey Deschanel recently filed divorce from her husband, Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard. Consequently, TMZ recently got ahold of the divorce papers and examined the indie star’s spending on utilities, pleasures and life in general.
The conclusion is that Zooey’s Deschanel’s spending is quite modest, with an income of about $95,000 a month and expenses averaging $22,550 a month, says TMZ. The article also boasts that Deschanel is worth almost $3 million, and has 3 credit cards with a $0 balance. All her spending was recorded along with Zooey’s divorce filing papers that were seized by TMZ earlier this week. My favorite detail about Zooey’s spending is that she donates $1,500 a month to charity.
I would call Zooey’s income that of a working celebrity—which is not to say other celebrities don’t work, but even though she isn’t as wealthy as your Miley Cyruses or Lil Waynes, she still is worth a substantial amount of money that makes my yearly college tuition look like a trip to the amusement park. In any case, TMZ’s nosey work woke me up to the fact that there are celebrities out there that aren’t blowing millions of dollars on designer clothes or paying $1,000 to watch strippers fight. You go, Zooey! Thanks for reminding us to spend our money wisely.Tags: Ben Gibbard, Death Cab for Cutie, divorce, Lil' Wayne, Miley Cyrus, money, New Girl, TMZ, Zooey Deschanel
