In light of new allegations from Sophie Turner, Joe Jonas was recently spotted looking somber during a dinner outing with his brother Nick Jonas. This comes on the heels of the shocking lawsuit filed against Joe by his estranged wife, Sophie Turner.
Sophie's recent allegations suggest Joe had wrongfully retained their children's passports, thereby hindering their travel to meet her in the UK. Observers noted the palpable tension during the brothers' dinner at The Waverly Inn, only a short distance from where Turner and Joe's ex-flame, Taylor Swift, had met earlier that week.
An insider relayed to DailyMail.com that the Jonas brothers seemed engrossed in a 'deep conversation.' Thursday brought further complications as Joe refuted Sophie's claims. She had demanded the 'immediate return' of their children and alleged they were being 'wrongfully retained.'
Court documents revealed that Turner is pursuing legal action to relocate their children to her native UK.
Joe's Rep Refutes 'Abduction' Claims
A representative for Joe issued a clarifying statement, stating, "This is a distressing legal disagreement arising from a marriage reaching its end.
Using terms like 'abduction' is at best misleading, and at worst, a gross misrepresentation of the facts. The children were never abducted." The representative further highlighted that the kids, after staying three months with Joe based on mutual agreement, are now with their mother.
"Sophie's claims appear to be a strategic move to shift the divorce proceedings to the UK and permanently take the children out of the U.S.," they added. Additionally, they clarified that Joe did not endorse any negative remarks about Sophie circulated on his behalf.
The statement emphasized, "Such comments do not align with his beliefs. Joe hopes Sophie reevaluates her aggressive legal approach and opts for a more amicable and private resolution." Reaffirming Joe's priorities, the statement concludes, "His primary focus remains the well-being of his children." Moreover, the representative refuted Turner's claims, asserting she was well aware of Joe's intent to file for divorce.
The unfolding drama underscores the complexities surrounding their divorce, with the well-being of their children at the heart of the matter.
