Might be a little late, but useful for the future maybe.

Usually you'd select the open path and hit ctrl/cmd+J to close the path, however what you have is two separate compound shapes so that won't work.

What you can do is draw a path between the gap and then include it in the divide, then you can delete the background separately.

I recorded a quick vid to demonstrate

Was this an image trace done? on the right side top near the hat there is an unclosed path. after closing that and any other open areas, Pathfinder > Divide should work
