It’s officially Joe-ver.
Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner released a joint statement on Wednesday to publicly address their divorce for the first time.
“After four wonderful years of marriage, we have mutually decided to end our marriage amicably,” the ex-couple wrote in an Instagram post.
“There is a lot of speculation as to why, but it is really a joint decision and we sincerely hope that everyone can respect our privacy wishes for us and our children.”
The statement came a day after Jonas, 34, filed for divorce from Turner, 27, in Miami, saying in court documents obtained by Page Six that their union was “broken down irretrievably.”
The Jonas Brothers member also claimed in the filing that his and the ‘Game of Thrones’ star’s two daughters primarily live with him, but he is seeking “shared parental responsibility” after their separation.
A source close to the Jonas family told Page Six exclusively on Tuesday that “divorce was a last resort for Joe,” who “never wanted to break up his family, but…had to take what he felt was the best course of action for his daughters. .”
“Joe finally reached a point where he felt he had exhausted all options to save the marriage,” the source added.
For more Page Six you love..
The couple’s troubles in paradise made headlines on Sunday when Page Six confirmed they were headed for divorce.
“Joe is exploring the best options for his future,” a source told us at the time.
Despite their split, the “Burnin’ Up” singer sang a love song for his estranged wife, “Hesitate,” at the JoBros concert on Sunday night.
The piece of 2019 is inspired in particular by their idyll started in 2016.
“It’s like my vows before writing my vows. That’s my promise to Sophie,” Jonas said of the melody for his family band’s 2020 concert film “Happiness Continues.”
Fans also noticed the DNCE frontman handed over his wedding ring for the show – after not wearing it on previous dates of his Five Albums, One Night Tour with siblings Kevin Jonas and Nick Jonas.
Joe and Turner – who signed a prenup – eloped in Las Vegas in May 2019, nearly two years after announcing their engagement.
Their first daughter, Willa, arrived in July 2020, and a second baby girl, whose first initial is D, was born in July 2022.
