“A Feeling of Plus One” – NBC Chicago

Sophie Turner opens up about her life with Joe Jonas, her ex-husband.

In a May 15 interview with British Vogue, Turner recalled her romance with Jonas and how she felt isolated after moving to Los Angeles with her then-new husband.

“You can’t just pass someone at a bar there, you have to drive 40 minutes with the intention of seeing someone,” she said.

Although Turner said Jonas’ family was very welcoming, she said she couldn’t help but feel uncomfortable when people lumped her in with the other Jonas Brothers spouses.

“There was a lot of focus on the three brothers and the wives,” she said of her now ex-husband’s bandmates, Nick and Kevin Jonas, who were married to Priyanka Chopra and Danielle Jonas. “Well, we were always called women, and I hated that.

“It was kind of that plus one feeling. And it had nothing to do with him – he didn’t make me feel that way in any way – it was just us being seen as the groupies of the group,” Turner said.

The “Game of Thrones” star said things got worse once she and Jonas uprooted their family to Miami, Florida. The couple are parents to their two daughters, Willa, 3, and Delphine, 1.

“We were in this community full of 50-year-old men, so imagine trying to make friends on a dog walk,” she said. “I felt like a little bird locked in a golden cage. It was amazing, yes, but I didn’t have any friends there.

It also didn’t help that Turner didn’t like America’s lax gun laws. When the Uvalde school shooting happened, which left 19 students and two teachers dead, she said she knew it was time to return home to the United Kingdom.

“It all contributed to this feeling that I have to go, I have to go,” she said of her departure from the United States.

Back home, Turner relied on the support of family and friends. On September 5, 2023, Jonas filed for divorce from Turner, stating that their marriage was “irretrievably broken.” A day after his request, the couple released a statement regarding their decision to separate.

“After four wonderful years of marriage, we have mutually decided to end our marriage amicably. There is much speculation as to why, but it is actually a mutual decision and we sincerely hope that everyone will respect our wishes regarding privacy for us and our children,” the statement said.

What followed was a war for public opinion and a custody battle, with a deal reached in October 2023.

She called the aftermath of the divorce “the worst days of my life.”
