Their breaking began acrimoniously but it seems like Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas are on much more amicable terms. It was confirmed yesterday that after four days of mediation in New York last week, they’ve reached a temporary custody agreement and also released a joint statement:
"After a productive and successful mediation, we have agreed that the children will spend time equally in loving homes in both the U.S. and the UK. We look forward to being great co-parents.”
Multiple outlets are reporting that their two daughters will be with Sophie for the next couple of weeks. And then they’ll start alternating on a two week schedule between them. The children will spend the American Thanksgiving holiday in November with Joe and Sophie will be with them during the Christmas holiday and New Year’s. As noted in the statement, she can take them to the UK – which is what she was pushing for when she filed her lawsuit alleging that Joe was withholding the kids’ passports.
The temporary agreement will be in place until January at which point Sophie and Joe will be required to provide a status report so it sounds like this is basically a test run and depending on how it goes, they’ll negotiate a more permanent situation in the new year. Right now, though, for their daughters, it’s a good sign that they’ve been able to come to a compromise. And it’s also promising that after the f-ckery of those early few weeks of their breakups, the leaks have stopped.
Because the narrative that people in Joe’s circle were trying to push at the beginning, suggesting that Sophie was an absent parent, clearly did not work in his favour. And then Sophie brought in her support system, in the form of a global superstar Taylor Swift.
All the extras in the chat have now exited. The leaking has stopped. Taylor has left New York (for the time being), and everyone has dialed down the temperature. These are encouraging developments going forward.
