Jonas mirrored the post on his own Instagram, and both stars have turned off comments, maintaining a dignified silence amidst speculations.

Turner and Jonas' love story began in 2016, captivating fans worldwide. Their engagement was officially confirmed in October 2017. They tied the knot in a surprise Las Vegas ceremony in 2019, followed by a more intimate celebration in France. The couple has two children, adding complexity to the decision to separate.

In past interviews, both stars had expressed enthusiasm about their union. Jonas, on James Corden's US chat show, had once said, per Cosmopolitan: "Well, we're going to get married this year. We're going to have a summer wedding, which I'm looking forward to. It's going to be a lot of fun."

Similarly, Turner revealed to Harper's Bazaar her desire for a small, intimate ceremony, saying, "We're trying to keep it as low-key as possible."

Jonas officially filed for divorce at the Miami Dade County Court this past Tuesday, September 5. According to NBC News, he cited that the marriage is "irretrievably broken."

Additionally, both Turner and Jonas "have shared parental responsibility" of their two children, as per their prenuptial agreement.

Interestingly, Turner was recently spotted enjoying a night out at an arcade bar, Dropshot Digbeth, in Birmingham, UK. Rumored to be the wrap party for her upcoming ITV series, Joan, she was seen indulging in cocktails and retro gaming, indicating that life goes on amid personal turmoil.

While the joint statement has set the record straight, it has also led to more questions than answers.

As fans and media speculate about the reasons behind the split, respect for the couple's privacy remains crucial. For now, Turner and Jonas have collectively closed a chapter, leaving the world to ponder the complexities of love and marriage in the limelight.
