Just a few days ago the world was shocked when reports surfaced that musician and former Disney Channel star, Joe Jonas, filed for divorce from Game of Thrones actress and wife of four years, Sophie Turner. Turner (27), known best by audiences as Sansa Stark and the middle Jonas Brother (34) are officially calling it quits, and fans’ heads are spinning from all the “speculative narratives.”
So here’s our attempt to sort out and make sense of what’s being reported.
Us Weekly provides a helpful timeline of the pair’s romance from when Joe and Sophie started dating in late 2016, to getting engaged a year later in New York City, attending Nick Jonas‘ wedding, conducting their own surprise wedding, having their first baby in 2020, then their second child in 2022, and more until the recent confirmation of the divorce rumors.
Here is the couple’s official joint statement posted on their respective Instagrams:
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 for us and our children.
Fans looking for Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner divorce details have gone deep, looking for personal information on the split. And people are not happy about how information seems to be putting the blame on Sophie. First, Joe Jonas posted a picture of himself on his Instagram amidst the divorce rumors, prominently wearing his wedding ring – which fans ran with.
The Many Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner Divorce Rumors
Everyone wants a satisfying explanation for the shocking news. Media outlets capitalized on this public need and reported that Sophie was off filming in England and having a social life, while Joe was “taking care of both of the kids.” Joy Behar from The View called out the insidious sexist undertones of this narrative, saying, “I think the spin of this that bothers me is: she’s working, he’s working. These weren’t new careers. They met on these terms.” Ironically, other circulating gossip blames the split on Turner being a “homebody” while Jonas wanted to party.
Other rumors say that Sophie desperately wanted to return to her home country in England, and Joe was reluctant. Others claim Jonas “overheard something on their Ring camera” that led to the end of the marriage. Some people are blaming it on the seven year age difference between the two, speculating that Sophie never wanted to be a mother. It’s important to note that these are the exact “speculative narratives” the couple referred to.
As the general public does not actually know the couple intimately, the cause for the divorce can not be confirmed at this time. To make sense of all the rumors going back and forth about Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner’s divorce, keep in mind fans’ want to feel closure and also like to take sides in big emotional situations. Jonas and Turner seemed to have a happy joyful marriage, and we are saddened at the news of their split.
