Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas were once seen as one of Hollywood's hottest couples - but now, they’re reportedly heading for a divorce.

First meeting in 2016 through mutual friends, the pair both have successful careers in acting and music, respectively. They often shared snaps of each other on Instagram and supported one another in their work.

But recently, cracks have started to show after sources said the couple have had "serious problems" for at least six months.


Here's everything you need to know about their relationship so far - from how they met, to their gorgeous wedding in the south of France, their baby news and potential divorce.

How did Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas meet?

Rumours that the pair were dating first started doing the rounds in November 2016, when Joe was spotted with his arm around the Game of Thrones star at the MTV EMAs.

In a later interview with Marie Claire, Sophie revealed they met through mutual friends.

Well. As any true Jophie fans will know, Sophie and Joe didn't just marry the one time, they got hitched twice.

The first time was on May 2, 2019 after the Billboard Awards.

Their nuptials were held in Las Vegas' Little White Wedding Chapel and were officiated by Elvis Presley himself (aka, an impersonator).

Not only did Joe's brothers Nick and Kevin attend the ceremony, Diplo tagged along - and even leaked a video of the vows on his Instagram.

The DJ later apologised to the couple and revealed they "confiscated" his phone during the second wedding ceremony in France.

Speaking of which, the couple then had a larger, more traditional wedding in the beautiful location of Avignon.

The second wedding was attended by Sophie's BFF and GoT co-star, Maisie Williams.

Sophie and Joe are reportedly planning for a divorce.

The couple have reportedly been having "serious problems" for at least six months. A source alleges that the couple's two children have been with Jonas as he tours the U.S. and that he has been caring for them "pretty much all of the time".

Joe was also recently spotted without his wedding ring.

September 5, 2023

Joe filed for divorce from Turner in Miami Dade County, Florida, with both parties citing that their marriage was “irretrievably broken”.

Joe is seeking joint custody of the couples’ two children according to the divorce documents. Him and Sophie had a prenuptial-agreement that Joe expects will be enforced, says the filing.

September 6, 2023

The couple then issued a joint statement confirming their split on their respective Instagram accounts. It read: “After four years of wonderful marriage we have mutually decided to amicably end our marriage.”

It was in contrast to claims they were leading “separate lives” for several months before the American singer filed for divorce.

“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,” said the announcement.

September 22, 2023

Things appeared less amicable as news emerged that Sophie is reportedly suing for the return of her children to England.

US broadcaster NBC said legal documents filed on behalf of Sophie accusing Joe of refusing to handover the children’s passports.

The documents, filed in a New York court, said both children have been kept in the city with their father since September 20 away from “their habitual residence” in England, where Joe is said to have agreed to move permanently in April.

The singer then issued a statement rejecting any suggestion that he has “abducted” their two daughters.

A statement issued by his representative said: “This is an unfortunate legal disagreement about a marriage that is sadly ending. When language like ‘abduction’ is used, it is misleading at best, and a serious abuse of the legal system at worst. The children were not abducted.

“After being in Joe’s care for the past three months at the agreement of both parties, the children are currently with their mother. Sophie is making this claim only to move the divorce proceedings to the UK and to remove the children from the US permanently,” it continued.
