Popular pop singer, Joe Jonas has been hitting the global headlines, ever since he announced his divorce from his ex-wife, Sophie Turner. For the unversed, it was on September 6, 2023, when the ex-couple shared their news of divorce, after four years of their marriage. While they mentioned that their decision was a mutual and amicable ones, keeping in mind their children, but it seems that the legal proceedings for their divorce are not going smoothly. Recently, Sophie Turner issued a fresh lawsuit against her ex-husband for allegedly restraining their daughters from returning to their mother in England. And now, Joe Jonas responds to the same.
In a recent statement to the People’s Magazine, given out by Joe Jonas’ representative, the singer responded to his ex-wife, Sophie Turner’s petition against him, citing the former for carrying out a wrongful retention of their daughters to return to their mother in England, where their schooling takes place. Reacting to such severe allegations, Joe emphasised the misleading use of the term, abduction. Moreover, he claimed that his ex-wife had demanded the passports of the children, so that she could take them away with her permanently to the UK. The statement further mentioned:
“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 U.S. permanently. The Florida Court has already entered an order that restricts both parents from relocating the children. Sophie was served with this order on September 6, 2023, more than two weeks ago.”
In the same statement, Joe Jonas further claimed that it was his ex-wife, Sophie Turner, who was actually intending to relocate the children permanently with her to the UK, thereby violating not only the previous orders issued by the Florida Court, but also disregarding the previous discussions between themselves over opting for a co-parenting method for their children. He highlighted:
“Joe and Sophie had a cordial meeting this past Sunday in New York, when Sophie came to New York to be with the kids. They have been with her since that meeting. Joe’s impression of the meeting was that they had reached an understanding that they would work together towards an amicable co-parenting setup. Sophie advised that she wanted to take the children permanently to the UK. Thereafter, she demanded via this filing that Joe hand over the children’s passports so that she could take them out of the country immediately.”
Concluding the statement, Joe Jonas condemned his ex-wife, Sophie Turner’s choice to chalk out the divorce proceedings publicly, and revealed that he instead wants a private and constructive solution. He mentioned to prioritise their daughter’s well-being primarily, and so wished that his ex-wife would stop using such harsh legal recourse.
