Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner confirmed at the beginning of September they are officially splitting up, after four years of marriage and two daughters together. TMZ reported on 5th September Joe filed for divorce, requesting joint custody for their children.

However, since the announcement of their divorce, things have taken a turn for the worse with the former Game of Thrones actress suing her ex over his statement, requesting he returns their daughters back to England after they temporarily joined him on tour.

The news comes as a shock to fans of the celebrity pair, as Sophie posted a cute post in tribute to her husband just weeks prior to their divorce statement, sharing a photo of her kissing his hand after the Jonas Brothers’ concert in New York on 14th August.

So why have Sophie and Joe split, do they have a prenup and how much are they each worth? Here’s what’s been publicised so far.

After the couple confirmed in a joint statement they decided to end their marriage 'amicably', all kinds of reports surfaced about the potential reasons for their split, with one claiming Joe 'saw something on their Ring doorbell camera' that was 'the last straw in his decision.' Another recent report from TMZ claimed Joe was "less than supportive" after Sophie gave birth to their second child.

Joe and Sophie split up due to their marriage getting to a place beyond repair. In their divorce papers Joe apparently cited their marriage as ‘irretrievably broken’.

TMZ reported earlier in September the couple had been ‘having issues’ for around six months, but didn’t detail what those issues were.
