Joe Jonas files for divorce from wife Sophie Turner

 September 6, 2023

Pop superstar Joe Jonas has formally initiated divorce proceedings with his wife, actress Sophie Turner, seeking an end to their four-year marriage. The 34-year-old singer cited in the legal documents that the marriage is irretrievably broken.

In Miami Dade County court, Jonas filed a formal divorce request shortly after news broke that he had hired a lawyer.

The court documents indicate Jonas' wish to co-parent the couple's two children, three-year-old Willa and a one-year-old daughter whose name remains private, as the Daily Mail reported.

Records hint at the younger daughter's name by referring to her as D.J. Underscoring the aforementioned co-parenting intentions, the lawyer representing Jonas commented, "It is in the best interests of the minor children that the parties have shared parental responsibility."

Plans for Shared Parenting

Jonas earnestly seeks collaboration with Turner on a comprehensive parenting blueprint, which includes establishing a shared timetable for their daughters. Miami, Florida, where the couple resided, is named as the primary home for the children.

The documents also shed light on Jonas' travels across the country with the children during a recent concert tour, while Turner has been overseas on a filming assignment.

Recent reports unveiled that Jonas has been the primary caregiver for the children over the past few months amid speculation of marital discord that has persisted for some time.

Insiders suggest contrasting lifestyles may be at the heart of the differences, with Jonas being more of a homebody and Turner more inclined to socialize, as TMZ reported.

Financial Aspects and Representation

The couple was prudent in their union in that they formalized a prenuptial agreement just before their Las Vegas wedding in 2019.

The dissolution papers do not elaborate on the specifics of the contract due to privacy concerns but highlight Jonas's intention not to seek child support from Turner.

Given the financial successes both have achieved in their respective careers -- Jonas' net worth is around $50 million, and Turner's at $10 million -- providing for the children's well-being should not prove problematic.

Details suggest that the prenuptial agreement ensures that Jonas retains his music royalties, and Turner holds onto her earnings from her iconic role in Game of Thrones and subsequent residuals, The Blast reported.

Jonas has chosen to work with renowned attorney Thomas J. Sasser, who is based in West Palm Beach and known for his high-profile clientele. In contrast, Turner has designated her business manager, Carrie Malcolm, as her primary liaison for the proceedings.

A Walk Down Memory Lane

The romance between the musician and actress blossomed in 2016 after an introduction by mutual acquaintances.

Their relationship advanced swiftly, with an engagement announcement on social media just a year later, followed by two wedding ceremonies -- an intimate one in Las Vegas and a grander celebration in Paris.

In interviews, Turner has frequently expressed her deep affection for Jonas, recalling their early dates and her instant realization of their future together.

The two had shifted their residence from Los Angeles to Miami in 2021. In one of her interactions with the press, Turner indicated her desire for a permanent return to her roots in the United Kingdom.
