    Sophie Turner Sues Joe Jonas Over Custody Of Their Two Children

    Sophie Turner is suing Joe Jonas for the return of their two young children to the UK.

    Court documents allege the Jonas Brothers singer, who filed for divorce earlier this month, is refusing to hand over the children’s passports, according reports.

    Jonas, meanwhile, has urged Turner to “reconsider her harsh legal position and move forward in a more constructive and private manner”.

    “His only concern is the well-being of his children,” his representative said.

    His statement also condemned the use of language such as “abduction” calling it “misleading at best, and a serious abuse of the legal system at worst”, according to reports.

    “The children were not abducted,” the statement said. “Sophie is making this claim only to move the divorce proceedings to the UK and to remove the children from the US permanently.”

    Turner – who was spotted out in New York last night with Taylor Swift, who also had a relationship with Jonas – claimed she heard about Jonas filing for divorce through the media.

    A joint statement from the former couple this month described the decision to divorce as “amicable” and “mutually decided” following “four wonderful years of marriage”.

    However, while Jonas filed his documents on 1 September, Turner did not find out until four days later, the petition said.


    Turner’s court documents, filed in the Southern District of New York, said the couple’s children, born in 2020 and 2022, have been wrongfully retained in New York City since 20 September from “their habitual residence” in England.

    The children are currently with Turner in New York, court documents said, with Jonas allegedly refusing to allow them to cross the Atlantic to England.

    The documents said the youngsters, who have dual citizenship, are “fully involved and integrated” in daily life in England, with the older child attending school, and both involved in playdates and cultural activities.

    Turner has “never consented or acquiesced to the removal of the children from England”, the court documents said.

    They said that Turner – who played Sansa Stark in Game of Thrones – and the singer made England their permanent home in April, partly because of a desire to have the children educated in the country.

    They moved into a rented property in May and made an offer on a permanent home in July, with a plan to move in in December, the filing said.
