Joe Jonas filed for divorce from Sophie Turner after four years of marriage and two daughters together.
The 34-year-old Jonas Brothers singer filed a motion in court in Miami-Dade County, Florida, on Tuesday to end his marriage to the 27-year-old Game of Thrones star.
The petition states that the marriage is “irretrievably broken”.
Turner and Jonas tied the knot in a secret ceremony at a wedding chapel in Las Vegas on May 1, 2019, following the Billboard Music Awards. Country duo Dan and Shay sang at the wedding.
The couple welcomed their first daughter, Willa, in 2020, and last year they welcomed their second daughter, whose name they have not revealed.
According to the divorce documents, Jonas is seeking joint custody of the girls. The two had a prenuptial agreement, which Jonas hopes will be enforced, the document said.
Representatives for Jonas and Turner did not immediately respond to requests for comment. On Wednesday, Turner and Jonas posted identical statements to their Instagram accounts.
“After four wonderful years of marriage, we have mutually decided to amicably end our relationship,” the statement said. “There are many speculative versions as to why, but this is truly a joint decision, and we sincerely hope that everyone can respect our desire to respect our privacy and that of our daughters.”
The couple have said in interviews that mutual friends had long been meaning to introduce them when they struck up a conversation via Instagram direct messages in 2016. They met in person in October of the same year and officially started dating in December. In October 2017, they announced their engagement.
Turner, who hails from Northampton, England, played Sansa Stark on the HBO series Game of Thrones for eight seasons, as well as Jean Gray on X-Men: Apocalypse and Dark Phoenix (from 2016).
Born in Arizona, Jonas rose to fame alongside his brothers Nick and Kevin in a band they formed in 2005 and subsequent Disney Channel series. They released their sixth studio album in May and are currently on a US arena tour.
