Sophie Turner sues Joe Jonas, demanding their children return to England


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

Court documents allege the Jonas Brothers singer is refusing to hand over the children’s passports, said NBC, Sky News’s US partner.

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

It also claims that Turner heard Jonas had filed for divorce through the media in early September, a couple of weeks after they had argued in mid-August.

Turner was spotted out in New York last night with Taylor Swift, who also had a relationship with Joe Jonas.

It was confirmed earlier this month that the couple were splitting, describing the decision as “amicable” and “mutually decided” following “four wonderful years of marriage”.

The 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.

They 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.

Because Turner began filming a new drama series in the UK in May, they decided the children would travel with Jonas and a nanny as he kicked off a tour with the Jonas Brothers in the United States in late July, NBC reported.

The plan, according to the petition, was for the children to stay with Jonas and his extended family until Turner finished filming.

She was then apparently expecting to travel to New York in mid-September before returning to the UK with the children.

But that was before the divorce was announced.
