It has been reported this week that Joe Jonas has filed for divorce from Sophie Turner after four years of marriage. 

According to documents obtained by Today via The Independent, Joe filed a petition for dissolution of marriage on 5 September, stating that "the marriage between the parties is irretrievably broken".

The Hollywood couple have been married since 2019, and share two daughters together - the first born in 2020, and the second last summer.

Joe Jonas is reportedly seeking joint custody of their two daughters.

Both Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas responded to the reports with a joint statement today, shared across both of their Instagram platforms 

"Statement from the two of us", read the statement. "After four wonderful years of marriage we have mutually decided to amicably end our marriage. 

"There are many speculative narratives as to why but, truly this is a united decision and we sincerely hope that everyone can respect our wishes for privacy for us and our children."

This news comes amid work commitments for both parties, with 34-year-old Jonas currently on The Jonas Brothers' tour in USA, and Turner 27, filming in the UK for her TV series Joan.

The couple have reportedly spent the summer apart, with their two children residing with Jonas over the past few months.

"They were not separated but they've been living separate lives for months," an insider reportedly told People following reports of their split, adding that the pair had spent "the whole summer" apart.

"As far as custody goes, this literally all just happened, so they're figuring it out in real time," the source continued. "As a family, they were based in Florida. The kids were with him the last few months, traveling with him with family while he's been on tour. Sophie's been working in the UK."
