Joe Jonas filed for divorce from Sophie: ‘she likes to party, he likes to stay at home’

Welp, Joe Jonas has officially filed for divorce from Sophie Turner. We got a little preview during the Labor Day weekend, when Joe’s people briefed TMZ and People Magazine with the news that he had met with divorce lawyers and hired one of them. TMZ’s story was dripping with casual misogyny about Sophie not having a lot going on career-wise (she had two babies in three years) and something about Joe looking after their kids while he was on tour. TMZ also broke the “he filed for divorce” story, and they added some new layers:

Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner are headed to divorce court, because TMZ has learned Joe has filed legal docs to end his marriage. Joe is asking for joint custody of their 2 daughters, 3-year-old Willa and their 1-year-old.

Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ … Joe and Sophie have a prenup — something Joe also addresses in his divorce docs, obtained by TMZ. There’s more in here as it pertains to their kids — including the fact that Joe wants a judge to establish a parenting plan between him and Sophie that allows for “frequent and continuing contact with both parties.”

Another interesting tidbit in his petition … Joe confirms what we’ve known since this weekend — namely, that the two children have been residing with him of late. Here in the docs, though, he makes sure to note where … Miami, as well as “other locations throughout the United States.” In other words, he’s been taking them with him on the road as he’s toured.

The issue of child support is also addressed in Joe’s docs … he says both parents can pay to support their children and that they should both be required to do so. With that said, JJ wants a Florida court to establish what’s fair … and to take health insurance for the kids into consideration in determining that.

TMZ broke the story … the couple has been having problems for around 6 months. Joe has been shopping for divorce lawyers for at least a week. He filed in Florida. He’s repped by Tom Sasser, who handled Tiger Woods’ divorce.

As for why Joe filed for divorce … a source with direct knowledge tells us this … “She likes to party, he likes to stay at home. They have very different lifestyles.”

As we reported, Joe has been taking care of the children pretty much all of the time over the last 3 months. When it comes time to hash out a custody arrangement, he could ask for significantly more than 50% physical custody, and our sources say that’s likely.

“She likes to party, he likes to stay at home” – my translation of that is: Joe expected his young, beautiful actress wife to stay at home and raise their kids while he toured and worked. As soon as Sophie went back to work, started hanging out with friends and enjoying herself without him, suddenly Joe wanted a divorce. I mean, that’s just my interpretation – maybe Sophie has been out partying (there have been zero photos of that) and maybe she’s not a super-engaged mother. But this framing feels so dirty to me and I feel sorry for Sophie, because no matter what, he’s trying to paint her as a bad mother from the very start of this divorce.
