Joe Jonas & Sophie Turner Are Divorcing After 4 Years Of Marriage
The pair confirmed their split in a joint statement on Sept. 6.
Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner are going their separate ways. On Sept. 5, the Jonas Brothers singer filed for divorce from the Game of Thrones actor, stating that their marriage is “irretrievably broken” in the court documents obtained by TODAY. The filing came just days after TMZ reported that the couple was “headed for divorce” and had been having “serious problems” for the past six months, with PEOPLE adding that he had retained a divorce lawyer.
Jonas filed for divorce in Miami, where the two recently sold their home for $15 million. He requested joint custody of their two children, noting how they had been residing with him in Miami and other U.S. cities while he’s on tour, but it’s still “in the best interests of the minor children that the parties have shared parental responsibility.” The couple has a prenuptial agreement in place.
On Sept. 6, Jonas and Turner shared a joint Instagram statement confirming their divorce. “After four wonderful years of marriage we have mutually decided to amicably end our marriage,” the statement reads. “There are many speculative narratives as to why but, truly this is a united decision and we sincerely hope that everyone can respect our wishes for privacy for us and our children.”
The Camp Rock alum appeared to respond to the initial divorce rumors at the JoBros’ Sept. 3 show in Austin by wearing his wedding ring, which he also donned in multiple Instagram posts over Labor Day weekend.
Turner most recently posted about Jonas on Instagram on Aug. 12, sharing pictures from the band’s opening night of The Tour at Yankee Stadium, including a snapshot of JoBros-themed friendship bracelets and one photo of her kissing the back of his palm while walking backstage. “long long New York nights,” she captioned the post.
Jonas and Turner first started dating in 2016 after he slid into her Instagram DMs. “We had a lot of mutual friends, and they'd been trying to introduce us for a long time,” Turner told Harper’s Bazaar UK in 2019. “We were following each other on Instagram and he direct-messaged me one fine day, out of the blue.”
The two got engaged in October 2017 and tied the knot in 2019 twice, first getting married in Las Vegas after the Billboard Music Awards before holding a larger ceremony in the South of France. They welcomed their first child, 3-year-old Willa, in July 2020, and their second daughter two years later, choosing not to announce her name and instead listing her as simply “D.” in the filing.
