Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner call divorce a ‘joint decision’ in first statement since split

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.
