He filed for divorce amidst his wife’s new romance

The happy marriage only lasted for a few years and officially came to an end after five years in 2020. However, the couple had already separated in January 2019. Pechenik filed for divorce nine months after their separation. 

The couple announced their separation in September in a joint statement where they stated they had decided that they are better off as friends, business partners, and co-parents rather than life partners and will remain committed to their business, values, and above all, their children. 

According to the sources, the divorce was filed just a day after Deschanel officially announced her relationship with Property Brothers' star Jonathan Scott whom she first met at the set of Carpool Karaoke: The Series in 2019

The other sources also confirmed that the couple created instant chemistry on the set and was dating after they were spotted walking hand in hand in Silver Lake, California, and was also spotted being affectionate in the audience of Dancing with the Stars on the 30th of September 2019.

The divorce was filed citing irreconcilable differences, which got finalized on the 1st of June in 2020 in Los Angeles Superior court
