Sophie Turner Opens Up About Divorce from Joe Jonas

After months of legal turmoil and emotional battles, Sophie Turner is breaking her silence on her messy split from Joe Jonas. In a recent interview, the 28-year-old Game of Thrones star revealed the difficult repercussions of filing for divorce from the 34-year-old singer, whom she began dating in 2016. Recalling the “worst few days” of her life, Turner praised pop icon and close friend Taylor Swift for her unwavering support.

Taylor Swift’s Unwavering Support

Turner expressed immense gratitude towards Taylor Swift, highlighting how the 34-year-old singer provided crucial support during her tough times. “Taylor was an absolute hero to me this year,” Turner shared in an interview with Vogue. “I’ve never been more grateful to anyone than I am for her because she took my children and me and provided us with a home and a safe space. She really has a heart of gold.”

Dealing with “Mom Guilt”

Turner also opened up about the “mom guilt” she faced after tabloids criticized her for not being there for her children. She recalled a particularly difficult time when she was contractually obligated to be on set while her children were in the States. “I remember I was on set, I was contracted to be on set for another two weeks, so I couldn’t leave. My kids were in the States and I couldn’t get to them because I had to finish Joan,” she said.

The Messy Divorce Battle

Turner and Jonas initially decided to part ways “amicably” after four years of marriage. However, the divorce quickly turned messy as Turner sued the DNCE singer for “wrongful retention” of their daughters, 3-year-old Willa and Delphine, born in 2022, in New York City. She claimed that Jonas had kept them from their habitual residence in England. Despite the initial conflict, the former couple later reached a custody agreement.

Finding Strength for Her Children

Reflecting on the challenging period, Turner admitted there were days she doubted her ability to continue. “There were some days that I didn’t know if I was going to make it,” she said. Turner recalled how her lawyer’s reminder about fighting for her children gave her the strength to persevere. “I would call my lawyer saying, ‘I can’t do this. I just can’t.’ I was just never strong enough to stand up for myself. And then, finally, after two weeks of me being in a rut, she reminded me that it was my children I was fighting for. Once anyone says to me, ‘Do it for your kids,’ I’m doing it. I wouldn’t do it for myself, but I’ll find the strength for them.”
