Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner confirmed that they are divorcing in a joint statement posted to Instagram on Wednesday.

The post comes after Jonas

“After four wonderful years of marriage we have mutually decided to amicably end our marriage,” the post reads. 

“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,” the statement continued.

According to Today, the singer filed for a dissolution of marriage on September 5 in Miami, Florida, claiming “the marriage between the parties is irretrievably broken.” 

TMZ first broke the news of Jonas shopping for a divorce lawyer, reporting that the pair, who have been married four years, have had “serious problems” for months. 

He stated in his petition that the couple’s two young daughters have been living with him in Miami, Florida, and other locations throughout the US, but stated that he wants to “have shared parental responsibility” with the British actor.

Representatives for Jonas and Turner did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
