Joe Jonas has filed for divorce from Sophie Turner after four years of marriage, The Times has confirmed.
The pop musician filed a filing in Miami-Dade County, Florida on Tuesday, stating his relationship with the actor was “irrecoverably broken.” Jonas took legal action shortly after reports surfaced over the weekend that he had hired a divorce lawyer.
The “Sucker” singer, 34, and the “Game of Thrones” alum, 27, wed in 2019 after dating for around three years. Jonas’ divorce filing reveals that the two intend to share custody of their children, ages 1 and 3.
The filing also confirms that Jonas and Turner signed a prenuptial agreement, which states that both parties “have the ability” and “should be required” to financially support their children.
The celebrity couple welcomed their first daughter, Willa, in July 2020. Almost exactly two years later, Turner gave birth to a second daughter, whose name they did not disclose.
The Jonas Brothers member and the “Dark Phoenix” star have been relatively open about their relationship, often attending industry events and posting together loving photos document their romance on social media. Turner also appeared to have formed a relationship with jewelry designer Danielle Jonas and actress Priyanka Chopra, who are married to Kevin and Nick Jonas, respectively.
In May 2019, Jonas and Turner spontaneously obtained a marriage license and tied the knot in Las Vegas. About a month later, they remarried in a private, more formal ceremony in Provence, France, attended by friends and family.
“2 years as your wife holy moly love you boy,” Turner labeled a black and white photo dated June 2021 of the happy couple walking down the altar.
Earlier this month, the Emmy nominee posted a photo of her kissing her husband’s hand backstage at Yankee Stadium. Turner, Chopra and Danielle Jonas were spotted supporting their spouses during the Jonas Brothers’ ongoing concert tour.
Despite their PDAs, Turner and Jonas have made serious efforts to privately raise their children.
Both parents have avoided sharing photos of their daughters on social media. And in May 2021, Turner slammed “creepy” paparazzi for trying to photograph her and her eldest child.
“I just want to say that the reason I haven’t posted any pictures of my daughter — and made sure we avoid paparazzi at all costs — is because I specifically don’t want those photos out there,” she explained at that time .
“I feel sick. i am disgusted And I respectfully ask everyone to stop following us and stop trying to take pictures of our daughter – and especially not to print pictures. It’s disgusting and you don’t have my permission.”
Two years later, Turner accidentally shared a video of one of her children on her Instagram story. Realizing her mistake, Turner quickly deleted the video and implored her followers not to post the footage elsewhere on the internet.
“We’ve always stood up for our children’s right to privacy, so sharing this publicly goes against everything I stand for,” she said.
“Our children deserve the right to grow up outside of the public eye and to learn and grow in private. … I would really appreciate it if someone who has reposted on another platform please delete the video.”
