Just a week after announcing her split from husband Jacob Pechenik, Zooey Deschanel was spotted out in public on a date with Property Brother‘s star Jonathan Scott.

They held hands as they arrived at Little Dom’s restaurant in Silver Lake, California. Deschanel wore a blue dress paired with metallic flats. Scott came dressed in a bomber jacket, grey denims and sneakers. Both flashed bright smiles which they kept throughout the outing.

Jonathan and Zooey met when Zooey and her sister Emily Deschanel filmed a Carpool Karaoke section for James Corden with Jonathan and his brother, Drew Scott. After the show, the four kept the party going venturing off together do real Karaoke in L.A.

This comes after the September 6 announcement when Zooey and her producer husband of four years, Pechenik told the public they would be splitting up. The couple share two children, daughter Elsie Otter and son Charlie Wolf.


“After much discussion and a long period of contemplation we have decided we are better off as friends, business partners and co-parents rather than life partners. We remain committed to our business, our values and most of all our children. Thank you for respecting our privacy at this time.” a rep for the couple said in a joint statement.
