Joe Jonas had a “cordial meeting” with Sophie Turner over the weekend – before she launched a lawsuit against him.
The 27-year-old actress has alleged that her estranged husband is blocking her from taking their two children to the UK, but Joe insists he’s simply adhering to a Florida Court order, while he’s also denied claims that his divorce filing took Sophie by surprise.
In a statement obtained by PEOPLE, a representative for Joe – who has Willa, three, and a 14-month-old daughter, whose name hasn’t been publicly disclosed, with the actress – said: “After multiple conversations with Sophie, Joe initiated divorce proceedings in Florida, as Florida is the appropriate jurisdiction for the case. Sophie was aware that Joe was going to file for divorce. The Florida Court has already entered an order that restricts both parents from relocating the children. Sophie was served with this order on September 6, 2023, more than two weeks ago.
“Joe and Sophie had a cordial meeting this past Sunday in New York, when Sophie came to New York to be with the kids. They have been with her since that meeting. Joe’s impression of the meeting was that they had reached an understanding that they would work together towards an amicable co-parenting setup.”
Sophie is keen to take her children to the UK, where she was born and raised.
