Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner recently announced their separation via social media. After four years of marriage, they have now entered a complicated legal and child custody battle. After a slew of allegations from both parties, an alleged private letter that raises questions about Jonas’ previous statements in the ongoing divorce battle has been unearthed.
Just a day after the alleged Ring camera remarks linked to Turner and Jonas were leaked, a letter allegedly written by Jonas on June 16, less than three months before he filed for divorce, has been obtained by Page Six in a stash of court documents. The letter confirms their joint decision to raise their daughters in England. Jonas had previously said that he didn’t want their daughters to be raised in the UK.
As reported by PageSix, Jonas wrote to the seller, “When my wife and I decided we were going to spend more time in the UK and search for a permanent home, our daughter expressed three unwavering requirements: having chickens, a pony and a Wendy house. I have been completely charmed by the idea of dropping my children to school on the boat and being able to spend a leisurely afternoon cruising to the pub with friends on my very own boat.” He added, “We could tell that your family have truly loved living here and we can envision our children growing up here and making this our forever home. I really think Sophie and I will be able to look after [redacted names] and for many years pay homage to the magic you have created here.”
Jonas’s letter convinced the seller to accept their offer, and they put down a 10 percent deposit of £750,000 ($914,130) on the house on July 7, two months before their breakup. Turner stated that the family’s belongings were moved to the UK between May 5 and July 31. Her argument is that since they are no longer residents of Miami, the city’s court shouldn’t have jurisdiction over the case.
The ex-couple released a joint statement and said, “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.”
