Sophie Turner Sues Joe Jonas Over Kids’ Custody

According to documents that PEOPLE was able to obtain, Sophie Turner filed a complaint against Joe Jonas on Thursday, demanding their daughters return to England. According to the Game of Thrones actress, Jonas, 34, “wrongfully retained” the kids and refused to give them their passports. 

They allegedly decided previously that England would be the girls’ “forever home” and thus, sold their Florida residence earlier this year to make this decision, according to Turner’s complaint.

According to the filing, the two parties met on September 17 to discuss the terms of their separation.

However, in a statement given to EW, a representative for Jonas disputed Turner’s account of recent events and alleged that the Florida court handling their divorce had issued an order preventing either parent from moving the kids at this time. As per the statement: 

“Joe is seeking shared parenting with the kids so that they are raised by both their mother and father, and is of course also okay with the kids being raised both in the U.S. and the UK. The children were born in the U.S. and have spent the vast majority of their lives in the U.S. They are American citizens.”

Joe Jonas’s Response To Sophie Turner’s Lawsuit

In his response to Sophie Turner’s lawsuit regarding the return of their daughters to the U.K., Joe Jonas refuted her claims that she learned of their divorce from the media. He shared the following statement with ET via a representative:

“After multiple conversations with Sophie, Joe initiated divorce proceedings in Florida, as Florida is the appropriate jurisdiction for the case. Sophie was aware that Joe was going to file for divorce. 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.”

The statement went on to add (ET):

“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.”

According to the statement, less than a day after the “amicable co-parenting setup” was decided,

“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. If he complies, Joe will be in violation of the Florida Court order.”

During an interview with Ryan Seacrest On Air With Ryan Seacrest in January of this year, Jonas revealed some rare details about the moment he proposed to Turner.

“I was probably more nervous to ask her dad than I was to ask her. It just all mumbles up. You throw out there and hope that her response is good, and you look back on it, and you’re like, ‘What did I say?’ Luckily it went well.”
