In a brief statement posted to Turner’s Instagram on Wednesday, she wrote on behalf of both of them: “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.”
Jonas filed for divorce on Tuesday citing that “the marriage between the parties is irretrievably broken,” according to the public documents that were obtained by The Music news.
Rumors that the Game of Thrones star and musician were headed for a split began circulating over the weekend amid reports that Jonas had retained a divorce lawyer. Shortly after, however, Jonas was spotted wearing his wedding ring after being photographed without it a couple of weeks prior. He also posted a photo on his Instagram with his wedding ring visible amid the rumors.
THR has reached out to Jonas’ lawyer, as well as reps for him and Turner.
The pair welcomed their first daughter, Willa, in July 2020, and their second, whose name they haven’t yet announced, in July 2022.
The dissolution of marriage document states the pair will split custody, noting, “it is in the best interests of the minor children that the parties have shared parental responsibility.”
