In a surprising turn of events, Joe Jonas, the 34-year-old singer from the famed Jonas Brothers band, has filed for divorce from Sophie Turner, the 27-year-old star, most famous for portraying Sansa Stark in HBO’s “Game of Thrones.”The couple, who had been married for four years, announced on their respective Instagram accounts.
The divorce filing, which took place in Florida’s Miami-Dade County Court, cites that “the marriage between the parties is irretrievably broken.” Despite rumors circulating over the weekend regarding their relationship status, Joe Jonas had been seen wearing his wedding ring during a concert in Austin, Texas, just before the official announcement.
Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner had a whirlwind romance that captured the hearts of fans worldwide. They began dating in late 2016 and announced their engagement in October 2017. In 2019, the couple tied the knot in a private ceremony in Las Vegas, immediately following that year’s Billboard Music Awards. However, they didn’t stop there; the couple also hosted a second, more elaborate wedding ceremony at Chateau de Tourreau in the south of France, attended by a star-studded guest list that included Priyanka Chopra and Maisie Williams.
The union was blessed with the arrival of two daughters. Their first child, Willa, was born in 2020, followed by the birth of their second daughter in 2022, whose name remains undisclosed to the public.
In their joint statement posted on Instagram, Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner expressed their desire for an amicable separation and requested privacy for themselves and their children. The statement read, “After four wonderful years of marriage, we have mutually decided to amicably end our marriage. 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.”
The divorce documents reveal that Jonas is seeking joint custody of their daughters, and there is an existing prenuptial agreement that he expects to be enforced.
Sophie Turner, originally from Northampton, England, gained worldwide recognition for her portrayal of Sansa Stark in the hit television series “Game of Thrones.” She also played Jean Grey in the X-Men films, “Apocalypse” and “Dark Phoenix.”
Joe Jonas, who hails from Arizona, rose to fame alongside his brothers Nick and Kevin in the band Jonas Brothers, which started in 2005. The group achieved massive success and even had their own Disney Channel series. They recently released their sixth studio album in May and are currently embarking on a tour of U.S. stadiums.
While the announcement of Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner’s divorce may come as a shock to many, the couple’s desire for an amicable separation and focus on co-parenting their children reflect their mutual respect and commitment to their family’s well-being.
