Amid his tumultuous divorce from actress Sophie Turner, Joe Jonas was recently seen enjoying a daddy-daughter day with his 3-year-old daughter, Willa. The paparazzi captured the heartwarming moment when the Jonas Brothers member was photographed carrying his little one into Twinkle Playspace in Brooklyn. This outing reportedly coincided with a birthday party that Willa was attending. Decked out in a blue striped shirt and jeans, the 34-year-old singer appeared to be in high spirits, while his adorable daughter looked cute in her pink outfit.
As the details of their custody arrangements remain in question, it is unclear where Jonas’ other daughter, 1-year-old Delphine, was during the outing with Willa. Sources indicate that Turner and both girls have been residing in one of Taylor Swift’s apartments in New York while the estranged couple navigates their complex custody proceedings. Previously, the 27-year-old “Game of Thrones” alum had been staying at a luxurious Midtown hotel before she moved into Swift’s celeb-favored Tribeca neighborhood. The arrangement allows Turner to have a temporary residence while the divorce proceedings continue.
Prior to the daddy-daughter day, a hearing was held in Miami to determine the location for the former couple’s divorce proceedings. While Joe Jonas wishes for the case to be heard in the United States, Sophie Turner is fighting for it to take place in England, where she intends to raise their daughters. However, during the hearing, the court decided to delay its decision until the resolution of another lawsuit filed by Turner. In that lawsuit, she accuses Jonas of withholding their daughter’s passports and preventing her from returning to her home country. The actress claims that she learned about her husband’s divorce filing through the media, weeks after a heated argument on his birthday. Despite these allegations, both parents reached an agreement to keep the children in New York for the time being as they navigate their legal battle.
In response to the accusations made by Turner, Joe Jonas vehemently denied abducting their children and claimed that he had informed her of his intention to file for divorce before doing so. The frontman of the band DNCE officially filed for divorce from Turner on September 5, after four years of marriage.
While Turner initially kept a low profile following their separation, she has since been seen spending time with her daughters and enjoying drinks with her friend, Taylor Swift, on multiple occasions. These outings hint at the actress slowly reentering the public sphere after the emotional rollercoaster of her divorce process.
Joe Jonas’s outing with his daughter represented a heartwarming moment amidst the challenges of his contentious divorce from Sophie Turner. Despite their disagreement regarding the location of the divorce proceedings and custody arrangements, both parents are prioritizing the well-being of their children. As the legal battle continues, it remains to be seen how the couple will navigate their separation while ensuring that their children receive the care and stability they deserve.
