Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas’ divorce is getting complicated.
The “Game of Thrones” star filed a petition in New York City on Thursday requesting Jonas return their children to their home in England, according to court documents obtained by CNN.
The petition cites the “wrongful retention” of their children “in New York City from their habitual residence of England,” and that they had made England their “permanent” home in April of 2023.
Jonas had been caring for their two daughters while on tour with his band The Jonas Brothers, an agreed-upon arrangement while Turner was in production on a new series, according to her petition.
Turner had planned to return to England this month with the children, the petition states, but when she attempted to collect their passports from Jonas last week, she claims he refused.
In her petition, Turner outlines the now-estranged couple’s efforts over the past year to find their “forever home” in England, and that prior to the end of their marriage, they’d mutually agreed on settling in the UK.
Their children “are both fully involved and integrated in all aspects of daily and cultural life” in England, according to the petition, which also states they anticipated closing on a new home this December for which they’d been in contract negotiations on purchasing.
“Joe is seeking shared parenting with the kids so that they are raised by both their mother and father, and is of course also okay with the kids being raised both in the U.S. and the UK,” his representative added. “The children were born in the U.S. and have spent the vast majority of their lives in the U.S. They are American citizens.”
