On August 5, he tweeted a photo of the four of them and wrote: "Met some new humans today. We had fun. I think I'll keep them." Just last week, Hollywood Life published photos of the Property Brothers and the recently separated actress holding hands at dinner in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles. Are Jonathan Scott and Zooey Deschanel dating?

Zooey Deschanel just split from her husband, film producer Jacob Pechenik on September 6. According to sources, the marriage had been over for months before they went public with the news. They released a joint statement saying: "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." Zooey and Jacob married in June 2015, just one month before their first child, a daughter named Elsie was born. They also have a two-year-old son named Charlie.

2. Friends first

The source said: “They were doing 'Carpool Karaoke' and they had a really fun day. They became friends after and then started talking as friends and realized there was more to it. It’s still a very new relationship.”
