Jonas Brothers star Joe filed for divorce from Sophie on September 1, and details of the couple’s complicated divorce battle have emerged daily.
After filing for divorce, Joe took to Instagram to post a statement, which purported to come from both him and Sophie, asking the public for respect for his privacy during this difficult time.
The post read: “After four wonderful years of marriage, we have mutually decided to end our marriage amicably. There is much speculation as to the reasons for this decision, but in reality it is of a joint decision and we sincerely hope that everyone can respect our wishes for confidentiality for us and our children.
However, it appears the couple’s divorce so far has not been amicable, as last week Sophie’s lawyers accused Joe of “wrongful failure to return” regarding their children.

Exes: Mr Perfectly Nice is the name of one of Taylor’s songs released as a Vault track from her album Fearless in 2021. At the time, fans flooded the internet with theories that the song was about the time of Taylor with Joe (seen in 2008).
The couple share three-year-old Willa and a 14-month-old baby, whose name has not yet been publicly announced.
In court documents, Sophie claimed an argument that took place on August 15 could have marked the end of their marriage, and Joe filed for divorce less than three weeks later.
Sophie also claimed that she was not directly informed of the divorce, and it was also alleged that Joe would not return the children’s passports so that Sophie could return to England with the children.
According to recent developments, Sophie’s legal application stated that the couple’s “permanent domicile” was England in April this year.
He also said Joe claimed the children, who were dual citizens, had been living in Florida for six months before filing divorce papers.
However, the court filing disputed Sophie’s claim that they had met before and agreed to have their two children “sent home to England”.
A spokesperson for Joe told CNN in a statement: “The children were born in the United States and have spent the vast majority of their lives in the United States. They are American citizens.
In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, a source said Joe thought it was “disgusting” that Sophie made him look like a “horrible father” while “victimizing” their children.
Sources have since told DailyMail.com that he is “frustrated” that the split has turned into an “ugly mess” after their four years of marriage.
Speaking exclusively to DailyMail.com, a source said: “Joe is furious with Sophie’s latest news, making him look like a horrible father.
“What she chose to do is disgusting in her eyes.
“This will only be the start of a situation that will become increasingly complicated.
“Joe thought they were moving in the direction of divorce and finding a way to co-parent, but now it’s just an ugly mess, and the latest lawsuit has deflected any kind of positivity.”
The source continued: “With the divorce, Joe is also trying to navigate his Jonas Brothers tour commitments and get to the other side.
“Frustration is the emotion going through him right now, and it doesn’t look like that’s going to change anytime soon.”
A second source added that Joe was unhappy with the way his children were drawn into his very public divorce battle with Sophie – while claiming the singer thought the Game of Thrones star’s recent outings with his significant other ex, Taylor Swift, had been staged.
“The children are the victims,” said the other source.
“Sophie and Taylor are not close. Joe took Sophie to a Taylor show, and it wasn’t even free. Once again, he was the one who filed for divorce. Read between the lines.’
They concluded: “Joe wants to take the high road and reach an amicable resolution.
“He just wants to find a compromise with Sophie so that they can both be present parents in their children’s lives. He loves his children, and she does too.
After news broke that Sophie was suing her ex-husband Joe in an attempt to bring their two children back to England, a representative for Joe said in a statement to DailyMail.com that the singer was seeking “parenthood shared” with Game. The Of Thrones star added: “The children were not kidnapped.”
“This is an unfortunate legal disagreement over a marriage that unfortunately ends. When terms such as ‘kidnapping’ are used, they are misleading at best and, at worst, a serious abuse of the legal system .The children were not kidnapped,” the representative said.
“Having been in Joe’s care for the past three months, with the agreement of both parties, the children are currently with their mother.
“Sophie is making this claim solely to move the divorce proceedings to the UK and to permanently remove the children from the US.”
Joe’s rep also said the singer has “already disavowed all statements allegedly made on his behalf that were derogatory toward Sophie.”

“They were made without her approval and do not reflect her opinions. Her wish is that Sophie reconsiders her harsh legal position and moves forward in a more constructive and private manner,” the statement said.
“Her only concern is the well-being of her children.”
The rep also denied Sophie’s allegation that she didn’t know he was filing for divorce.
“After several conversations with Sophie, Joe initiated divorce proceedings in Florida, with Florida being the appropriate jurisdiction for this matter. Sophie knew Joe was going to file for divorce,” the rep said.
“The Florida court has already issued an order prohibiting both parents from moving their children. Sophie received this order on September 6, 2023, more than two weeks ago.
