Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner Refute “Speculative Narratives” in Statement on Divorce
Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner are calling it quits after four years of marriage. They addressed the divorce for the first time in a joint statement posted to both of their Instagram accounts on Sept. 6, three days after news of their divorce first broke on Sept. 3.
“After four wonderful years of marriage we have mutually decided to amicably end our marriage,” they wrote. “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.”
Previously, on Sept. 3, People reported, per a source, that Jonas had retained a divorce lawyer. TMZ was first to break the news. On Sept. 5, Jonas filed for divorce in Miami-Dade County, FL, according to online records viewed by POPSUGAR. Per “Today,” the filing states that “the marriage between the parties is irretrievably broken.”
According to “Today,” the couple’s two children — daughter Willa, 3, and their other baby girl, 1 (whose name has not been shared yet) — have been living with Jonas in Miami and other places throughout the US. However, Jonas notes in his petition that “it is in the best interests of the minor children that the parties have shared parental responsibility.” The petition also states that Jonas and Turner have a prenuptial agreement.
Reps for Jonas and Turner did not immediately respond to POPSUGAR’s requests for comment on Jonas’s divorce filing. Previously, a rep for Turner declined to comment on the initial reports of their split.
On the same day that news broke of Jonas and Turner’s impending divorce, the former posted a photo on Instagram of him with his brothers Nick and Kevin and wished his followers a “Happy Labor Day weekend.” The snap shows Jonas wearing his wedding ring. Fans who were at the Jonas Brothers concert on Sept. 3 in Austin, TX, were quick to report on social media that he was also wearing the ring on stage.
Jonas, 34, and Turner, 27, started dating in late 2016 and announced their engagement in October 2017. They tied the knot Las Vegas style with a star-studded wedding — which Diplo famously live-streamed on his Instagram — on May 1, 2019, just hours after they attended the Billboard Music Awards. A month later, the parents of two got married again in France with their closest family and friends in attendance.
This year, Turner supported Jonas at his Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony, where he received a star with his brothers, Nick and Kevin. The couple also attended Vanity Fair’s 2023 Oscars afterparty in March. Most recently, Turner celebrated Jonas’s 34th birthday by posting a selfie of them wearing matching pajamas on Instagram. Turner captioned it, “happy birthday handsome.”
