Joe Jonas Faces Backlash on Social Media After Filing for Divorce from Sophie Turner

In a shocking turn of events, Joe Jonas, the eldest Jonas brother, has faced a wave of backlash on social media after filing for divorce from his ex-wife Sophie Turner. According to TMZ, a source close to the couple revealed that their split was due to their differing lifestyles, with Turner's affinity for partying being a major point of contention. However, online users have accused Jonas of trying to make Turner, who is known for her role in "Game of Thrones," look like a bad mother.

The comments made by the source have led to a barrage of criticism aimed at Jonas, with users on X expressing their disappointment in his actions. One user scoffed at his over-the-top smear campaign, stating that he should have quietly filed for divorce instead of trying to tarnish Turner's reputation. Another user condemned Jonas for attempting to portray himself as a martyr for simply being a dad, questioning his controlling behavior. The general sentiment among fans is that Jonas and his PR team are trying to get ahead of something by releasing these stories.

News of Jonas seeking to end his four-year marriage to Turner first emerged on Sunday and was later confirmed after he hired lawyer Tom Sasser, who famously handled Tiger Woods' divorce, to represent him. Despite the impending divorce, Jonas and Turner have expressed their desire to share joint custody of their two children, 3-year-old Willa and a 1-year-old whose name has yet to be announced.

Additionally, it has been revealed that the couple had an ironclad prenuptial agreement in place. As part of the agreement, Jonas will keep all of his royalties from the music he has made with his brothers, as well as his other band DNCE. Turner, on the other hand, will retain the money she made from "Game of Thrones" and any residuals from her acting career. They will also maintain the rights to their image and likeness, as well as any businesses associated with their celebrity status.

In a joint statement released on Instagram, the couple referred to their split as a "united decision" and requested privacy for themselves and their children. However, rumors about the reason behind their divorce have been running rampant, with many outlets pointing to Turner's alleged partying habits. In their statement, Jonas and Turner denied these claims, stating that their decision to end their marriage was not influenced by any specific behavior.

The divorce filing came as a surprise to fans, as Turner had recently posted a photo of herself kissing Jonas' hand backstage at his Jonas Brothers tour. Jonas, too, had shared a photo flaunting his wedding ring amidst the divorce rumors. The couple, who reportedly sold their Miami home for $15 million earlier this year, initially met after Jonas messaged Turner on Instagram. They became engaged in 2017 and had an impromptu wedding in Las Vegas, followed by a more lavish ceremony in France.

As the news of Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner's divorce continues to unfold, fans and critics alike are anxiously awaiting any further developments.
