Inside Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner’s love story: How couple enjoyed rock star $600 Las Vegas wedding live-streamed to the world, elegant French nuptials and two kids… before marriage hit the rock bottom
Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner are said to be ‘headed for divorce’ after four years of marriage and two kids.
The Jonas Brothers singer, 34, has been seen going without his wedding ring in recent weeks, and is now reportedly preparing to file for divorce from the actress, 27. Joe has also reportedly retained a divorce attorney, according to People.
However, on Sunday the musician was wearing his ring at his Austin concert, making the current status of their marriage unknown. Some fans also claimed they spotted Sophie at the show, although it hasn’t been confirmed.
In a photo and clip posted on Twitter by @jbrosnews Joe was pictured on stage with his wedding ring. DailyMail.com has reached out to representatives for Jonas, while a representative of Turner declined to comment.
Amid rumors of a breakdown in Joe and Sophie’s marriage Dailymail.com looks back at their whirlwind romance….
The couple were married in two ceremonies in 2019, and share two children together.
Joe was first pictured with his arm around the Game of Thrones star in the audience at the MTV EMAs in November 2016, leading people to wonder if they were dating.
Later in November Sophie joined Joe in an photobooth picture at a pal’s wedding, alongside Joe’s brother Nick, as their romance continued to heat up.
Sophie appeared to confirm the romance when she shared a picture of Joe smoking a cigar on a boat to her Instagram in January of 2017.
That same month she played coy and was left red-faced when host Mario Lopez asked her about the romance and she simply responded: ‘I’m not saying anything… I’m very happy.’
Next month Joe made his first romantic and public declaration when he commented on one of Sophie’s Instagram pictures with a flame emoji.
The couple both attend the Met Gala together in 2017 – but they choose to arrive separately and were not pictured together at the event.
However, they were later seen going to the Marc Jacobs afterparty together.
Things continued to get serious between the two as they adopted a husky puppy and became proud owners of two dogs.
In October of 2017 the couple got engaged to one another and shared a picture of their hands with rings on Instagram.
Sophie wrote: ‘I said yes!’
The following year Sophie joined Nick’s wife Priyanka Chopra and Kevin’s wife Danielle Jonas on the music video for the Jonas Brothers’ new single, Sucker.
The British actress admitted to Glamour UK in 2019 that her famous significant other had helped her find happiness in things other than acting.
‘A lot of [my happiness now] is to do with being with a person I’ve fallen in love with, who loves me more than he loves himself, and who wants to see me find my own happiness. That was probably the biggest thing that pushed me to find who I am — and find my happiness in things other than acting,’ she explained.
In May of 2019 the couple tied the knot in a surprise $600 ceremony in Las Vegas with an Elvis impersonator officiating.
They later revealed that they had not told their parents in advance, but their secret got out thanks to their guest Diplo, who livestreamed the ceremony with his phone.
They tied the knot for a second time in a beautiful ceremony in the South of France, surrounded by their friends and loved ones.
The couple wed in a lavish ceremony at the Château du Martinet with a source telling E! News the newlyweds couldn’t contain their tears as they said their vows.
‘Joe and Sophie both teared up while reading their vows. Everyone stood and cheered, and they had huge smiles as they left as a couple. It was an emotional ceremony.’
The romantic ceremony came one month after the couple legally tied the knot in Las Vegas, with a source adding that Sophie and Joe had always hoped for a ‘royal-style’ and ‘traditional’ ceremony where the actress could wear white.
In February of 2020 it was revealed that the pair were expecting a baby.
‘The couple is keeping things very hush hush but their friends and family are super excited for them,’ a source told Just Jared at the time.
Another insider added: ‘Sophie has decidedly been choosing outfits to wear on and off the carpet to accommodate her changing body.’
Sophie and Joe confirmed they welcomed their first child in July of 2020, in a statement that said they were ‘delighted to announce the birth of their baby’ – a daughter named Willa.
Sophie avoided sharing any photos featuring her pregnant stomach before the birth, and it wasn’t until September of that year that she began posting throwback photos from her pregnancy.
Game of Thrones fans have theorized that Sophie took inspiration from her hit show for her daughter’s name, noticing that Willa is the name of two minor characters from the series.
One of the characters named Willa appeared on two episodes of the show back in season five and was a wildling character. The second appearance of Willa came in season eight as a servant at Winterfell.
In February of 2022 she set the internet ablaze with rumors that she was expecting her second child after she stepped out in an outfit that highlighted what many fans believed was a baby bump.
The star only strengthened the social media speculation when she was seen out in Los Angeles’ Los Feliz neighborhood with her husband Joe and their daughter Willa, 19 months at the time.
The actress wore a revealing white crop top that put the focus on her tummy, which she was seen placing her hand on delicately.
Sophie confirmed her second pregnancy during an interview with Elle UK in May, two years after giving birth to eldest child Willa.
‘The greatest thing in life is seeing my daughter go from strength to strength,’ she told the publication. ‘We’re so excited to be expanding the family. It’s the best blessing ever.’
She stunned in an embellished black gown while her husband looked dapper in a white and black tuxedo jacket with extra long tails.
The couple were both seen cradling Sophie’s burgeoning baby bump on the red carpet, as they tenderly gazed at each other while posing for photographers.
In July, it was revealed Sophie gave birth to the couple’s second child – another baby girl.
A spokesperson told People: ‘Joe and Sophie are happy to announce the arrival of their baby girl.’
However, in spite of the picture perfect public image the two projected, behind the scenes trouble has been brewing for months, according to TMZ.
Sources told the outlet that the couple have been having ‘serious problems’ behind the scenes.
In August Joe was seen going without his wedding ring multiple times, before news of an impending divorce hit on September 3rd.
However, that same day Joe was spotted still wearing his wedding ring as he enjoyed a Texas sunset with his brother Kevin and Nick in Austin.
The Jonas Brothers kept the caption under their sunset pic casual without addressing the marital drama.
Simply wishing fans a happy Labor Day weekend and noting how their ongoing tour has been ‘incredible so far,’ the melodious trio of heartthrobs added, ‘Having a little family time in the Texas sunset tonight before a big Austin show tomorrow.’
Joe, who has been frequently spotted out in public not wearing his wedding ring, looked happy in the sibling sunset pic, sporting a graphic T-shirt and blue jeans.
At least as early as August 11, Jonas was pictured with a bare left ring finger while taking care of some errands in The West Village in Manhattan.
On August 11, he was seen in a casual black T-shirt and matching shorts that showed off his fit, tattooed figure while out in New York City.
Missing from his left ring finger was the band he normally wears to commemorate his marriage to Sophie.
Sources close to the situation claim that Joe is preparing to file divorce documents, according to TMZ.
It was also revealed that Joe has been meeting with divorce lawyers and has retained one, as per People.
Joe and Sophie are said to have been having ‘serious problems’ for the past half year. Sources told the publication that Joe has been primarily handling parenting duties in recent months.
They said he had been caring for their two young daughters — Willa, three, and a one-year-old girl whose name has not been publicly revealed — ‘pretty much all of the time’ for the past three months.
Details on what came between the couple are scarce. The last time they were photographed together was in April when they were seen arriving at an afterparty in London that Jonas was DJing at.
Sophie has been filming in the UK since May, which could explain why she hasn’t been seen much on Joe’s tour.
The couple even recently sold their Miami mansion, which they just purchased last year.
The DailyMail has reached out to reps for Sophie and Joe for comment.
