Sophie Turner Referenced A Taylor Swift Album In Her Now-Deleted Instagram Post

The Game of Thrones star is in her Fearless era.

On Oct. 8, Sophie Turner returned to Instagram in the midst of her contentious divorce from Joe Jonas, and her post — which she appeared to later delete — seemed to reference a much-loved Taylor Swift album.

The Instagram story in question featured a photo of Turner’s wrist, sporting a friendship bracelet that read “Fearless.” While this accessory could be perfectly anodyne, Swifties speculated that the bracelet may have been a reference to Swift’s album of the same name. The friendship bracelet itself could also be seen as a nod to Swift, as her fans have recently taken to making and sharing friendship bracelets at the singer’s Eras Tour concerts.

And it’s not like Turner is ignorant of this Swiftian lore: She and Swift are friends, and have been spotted together multiple times since Turner’s divorce made headlines. The singer even reportedly loaned Turner her Tribeca investment property to stay in as she navigates her split from Jonas.

If Turner did mean to reference Swift’s music, she didn’t choose an album title at random. Fearless carries a particular meaning in this context, as it was released just a month after Swift herself split from Joe Jonas. (The two dated for a few months in 2008.) The album contains numerous songs purported to be about the Jonas Brothers singer, including “You’re Not Sorry,” “Jump Then Fall,” and most notably, “Forever & Always,” which Swift reportedly wrote after they broke up via a 27-second phone call.

When Swift released the re-recorded Fearless (Taylor’s Version) in April 2021, fans further speculated that the new “from the vault” track “Mr. Perfectly Fine” was also written about Jonas. The theory was even substantiated by Turner: “It’s not NOT a bop,” she quipped on her Instagram story at the time.

Jonas filed for divorce from Turner on Sept. 5, following several reports that the couple was “headed for divorce” after nearly four years of marriage.

Weeks later, Turner filed a lawsuit against her estranged husband, accusing him of withholding their two daughters’ passports and stopping them from traveling back to England. Jonas denied the allegations, saying he did not “abduct” their children and that the lawsuit went against the “amicable co-parenting setup” they were trying to establish. “Joe is seeking shared parenting with the kids so that they are raised by both their mother and father, and is of course also okay with the kids being raised both in the U.S. and the UK,” his rep said in a statement.

The two are currently participating in a four-day mediation to sort out custody of their children.
