"After four wonderful years, we have decided to end our marriage in a mutual and amicable manner. There is a lot of speculation about why, but the reality is that this is a mutual decision and we both wish, honestly, that everyone can respect our wishes to preserve our privacy and that of our daughters, "explained about their separation on September 6 the couple formed by Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas on Instagram, in the same message published at the same time in each of your accounts of the social network. A few days later, on September 20, that separation did not seem so "friendly": the actress who achieved fame for her role as Sansa Stark in Game of Thrones, 27, sued the singer, 34, to try to get her two children to return to her native England. That complaint seemed like a bomb that ended the cordiality between the ex-couple, because in it he accused the artist of "retaining" the little ones in the United States and claimed to have learned from the media of his divorce. A few days later, the networks were fuming when the interpreter went to dinner for the second time with Taylor Swift, who is also Joe Jonas' ex. Now it seems that the waters have calmed, at least temporarily.
"The petitioner, Sophie Belinda Turner, by and through her undersigned attorneys, presents this Verified Petition for the Return of Children to England against the Respondent, Joseph Adam Jonas," read the court filing, which was accessed by several media outlets, both American and British. Shortly after the news broke, a representative of the singer sent a statement with his version: "The Florida Court has already issued an order restricting both parents from relocating children," the note said. It added: "Sophie was served with this order on 6 September, more than two weeks ago." "The girls were born in the United States and have spent the vast majority of their lives in the United States. They are American citizens," he said, although in his statement he was willing to be raised between the United States and England.
The intrahistory of Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner's divorce: a "friendly" goodbye, months away and two conflicting lifestyles
In the middle of their mediatic divorce, according to new documents filed this Monday, September 25 in New York, the daughters of the already ex-couple will remain in this American city for the time being, until the disagreement for their custody is resolved. According to media such as People or Page Six, which have had access to these legal documents, both Turner and Jonas have agreed to keep, always temporarily, their daughters (Willa, three years old, and D., a 14-month-old girl whose full name has never been released) in the southern and eastern districts of New York. which include New York City, Long Island and the Hudson Valley.
The documents filed also reveal that both the actress and the singer have consented to this agreement. "The parties have agreed to the entry of the Provisional Consent Order, by proposal attached, notwithstanding the claims of either party, which prohibits the mobility of children outside the jurisdictions of the United States District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York." If this new order is violated, it will be the court that acts as a matter of law to "take or cause to be taken" under federal or state law "to protect the welfare of the children involved."
The couple has been married for four years. Since that September 4 in which their break was announced after weeks of speculation, much has been said and published about the reasons for their separation, although various US media specialized in heart affairs pointed out that this separation was no surprise: during this summer the musician had been seen in several of his concerts without the wedding ring. The family mansion in which both resided in Miami – the Florida city in which the singer filed for divorce – was sold in August after some reforms and price reductions. And it was learned that he had groped some matrimonial lawyers. Beyond speculation, the British actress, who in recent weeks was filming a new series, entitled Joan, precisely in Spain, it seems that she does want to return to the United Kingdom with her daughters. Although for now it will have to wait.
