Joe Jonas has initiated divorce proceedings from Sophie Turner after being married for four years.
Amid swirling rumors of marital discord, the Jonas Brothers singer officially filed for divorce from the Game of Thrones actress in Miami-Dade County, Florida, on Tuesday.
According to the details outlined in the petition, as obtained by TODAY.com, Jonas cited that “the marriage between the parties is irretrievably broken.”
The couple, consisting of the American singer and British actress, shares two daughters: Willa, aged three, and another girl, born in July 2022, whose name has been kept private, with only her initials, “D.J.,” disclosed in the legal document.
In the filed petition, the 34-year-old mentioned that the children have primarily resided with him in Miami, where the family’s primary residence is situated, as well as in various other locations across the United States during his touring commitments with his brothers. He emphasized that “shared parental responsibility” is in the best interests of the minor children.
Jonas, as reported by DailyMail.com, has made a “respectful request” for the establishment of a parenting plan and a designated “timesharing schedule” with Turner, who is 27 years old. He also indicated their Miami home as the children’s primary residence.
The legal document further revealed that the couple had entered into a prenuptial agreement before their marriage, which initially took place in Las Vegas in May 2019, followed by a larger ceremony in France the subsequent month.
Notably, the pop star expressed his lack of intention to request child support from his former spouse, stating, “Both parties have the ability to provide for the support of the minor children, and they should both be required to contribute to the support of the minor children.”
Although rumors of their separation began circulating on Sunday, Joe Jonas continued to wear his wedding ring during public appearances and on social media. He even shared a photo on Monday displaying his ring, seemingly addressing the speculations.
The romantic relationship between Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner commenced in 2016.
