Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner have come to an agreement on the custody of their daughters in light of their recent breakup. Turner sued Jonas last week, alleging that Jonas was withholding their daughters passports despite her wishes to return to the UK with the children. According to Page Six, an interim consent order was signed by the former couple on Monday morning (September 25th) which bars either of them from removing their kids from New York. Jonas and Turner are scheduled to appear for a pretrial conference on October 3rd.
Turner claimed in her lawsuit that the “wrongful retention” of their two daughters began on September 20th and that she and Jonas had agreed over Christmas 2022 that the UK would be the “forever home” for the children. Turner also alleged that she found out about their divorce “through the media,” following an argument on Jonas’ birthday. In response, Jonas issues a statement via his rep calling the lawsuit misleading: “After multiple conversations with Sophie, Joe initiated divorce proceedings in Florida, as Florida is the appropriate jurisdiction for the case. Sophie was aware that Joe was going to file for divorce. Joe and Sophie had a cordial meeting this past Sunday in New York, when Sophie came to New York to be with the kid. They have been with her since that meeting. Joe’s impression of the meeting was that they had reached an understanding that they would work together towards an amicable co-parenting setup.”
The singer also alluded to the ongoing divorce battle at a Jonas Brothers show over the weekend when he gave a shout-out to parents.
