An “unhappy” Joe Jonas reportedly tried to “save” his four-year marriage to Sophie Turner before filing for divorce on Tuesday as a “last resort”.
Jonas Brothers singer, 34, and Game of Thrones alum, 27, “have been through it this year,” according to a source who spoke to page six.
“Divorce was a last resort for Joe. He never wanted to break up his family, but he had to take what he thought was the best course of action for his daughters,” the source added.
The couple – who reportedly have an ironclad prenup – share three-year-old daughter Willa and a one-year-old daughter, whose name they didn’t reveal, but who was on the DJ list in the divorce petition.
The source continued, “An unhappy home is no home, and the truth is he and Sophie have been through it this year. There’s a lot of noise out there, but it’s not a situation that broke the camel’s back as reported.

“It continued to grow, and Joe eventually reached a point where he felt he had exhausted all options to save the marriage.”
This follows reports that Sophie’s lifestyle is what prompted her ex-husband to file for divorce.
The actress reportedly “likes to party,” which sparked an altercation with the rather homey musician.
“She likes to party; he likes to stay at home. They have very different lifestyles,” a source revealed to TMZ.
Jonas officially filed for divorce from Turner after four years of marriage, stating in paperwork that their relationship was “broken irretrievably.”
He submitted the paperwork needed to end his marriage in a Miami Dade County courtroom – hours after it was revealed he had hired a divorce attorney.
Despite their different lifestyles, the ex-couples are unlikely to fight over money amid their divorce, as they have a ‘bulletproof prenup agreement’ in place, according to the explosion.
Jonas will keep all of her music royalties, while Turner will keep the money she earned from her acting career.

Both will keep all the property they acquired before their marriage and will only have to share their marital home.
The couple recently sold their Miami mansion, which they bought last year.
The only unknown for the moment concerns the custody of the two spouses and child support, which will be decided by the judge.
The amount of child support will be determined by their monthly salary and who earns the most money. It can also be renegotiated if either party starts making more money in the future.
Joe has been busy touring with his brothers and bandmates Nick, 30, and Kevin Jonas, 35.
The 2023 Jonas Brothers Tour kicked off on August 15 at TD Garden in Boston and will end on October 14 at the Kaseya Center in Miami.
While Joe is on tour with his band, Sophie has been filming the ITVX drama Joan in the UK since May.
Court documents obtained by DailyMail.com reveal Jonas said his marriage to Turner was ‘irretrievably broken’ – and outline the former couple’s plans to share custody of their daughters.
The documents list Willa by her initials, WJ, and allude to their other daughter’s name, naming her as a DJ.
In the petition for dissolution of the marriage, Jonas’ lawyer states: “It is in the best interests of minor children that the parties share parental responsibility. »

Jonas “respectfully requests” in the documents that he and Turner “work out a parenting plan” and a “time-sharing schedule,” with Willa and DJ’s primary residence listed as Miami, Florida, where he and Turner lived.
The documents also state that the parties “entered into a valid and enforceable prenuptial agreement” on April 29, 2019 – days before they were to marry in Las Vegas.
Jonas’ attorney did not include the prenup in the dissolution petition to “protect the privacy rights of both parties.” However, the documents further suggest that he has no intention of seeking child support from Turner, stating, “Both parties have the capacity to support minor children and they should both be held accountable. to contribute to the maintenance of minor children.
Jonas is represented by West Palm Beach-based attorney Thomas J. Sasser in the divorce proceedings, while Turner’s business manager Carrie Malcolm is listed as his primary point of contact in the filings.
Sasser is an in-demand celebrity lawyer who was previously hired to handle Tiger Woods’ high-profile divorce from wife Elin Nordegren in 2010. The Swedish model received a $100 million settlement from the professional golfer.
Sasser, managing partner of the Florida-based law firm Sasser, Cestero & Roy, also represented NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon during his divorce from his wife, model Brooke Sealey, in 2003. He was reportedly hired by Gisele Bundchen during her split from NFL star Tom. Brady last October.
Jonas’ decision to hire Sasser comes after he was photographed on Aug. 11 not wearing his wedding ring.
However, for a performance alongside his brothers in Austin, Texas on September 3, he was firmly back on the finger and Turner was reportedly present at the concert.
The couple, who started dating in 2016 after being introduced by mutual friends, got engaged a year later, posting their impending nuptials on Instagram with similar captions of “I said yes” and “She said yes”.
Marrying two years after their engagement in two ceremonies — the first, an intimate, private affair in Las Vegas with a second, grander wedding in Paris, Jonas and Turner seemed like a perfectly happy couple.

Turner opened up about her husband in an interview with Jimmy Fallon in May 2022 and said she knew it was him almost immediately.
When Fallon asked Turner when she knew she would be marrying Jonas, she replied, “I mean the first night I met him.”
However, despite the perfect public image the pair projected, issues had been brewing behind the scenes for months, according to TMZ.
Sources told the outlet that the couple had “serious issues” behind the scenes.
