Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas were photographed having dinner just two days before she sued him for the return of their children to her home country, England.

In photos obtained by TMZ, the 34-year-old Jonas Brothers member and the 27-year-old Game of Thrones actress were spotted out to eat together with their two daughters - D., 14 months, and Willa, three.

The four sat together and enjoyed a meal at Momofuku Noodle Bar Uptown in New York City on Monday (September 18), according to the outlet.

In one of the snaps, Jonas could be seen fixated on the mother of his children as she fed their youngest daughter, whose name has not yet been revealed. In another snap, the estranged couple - who decided to call it quits after four years of marriage - had switched spots as Turner carried Willa in her arms.

Check out the pictures below:

Just a few days after the seemingly pleasant interaction, Turner took legal action to have their children returned to their "forever home" in England amid the escalating tensions surrounding their divorce proceedings.

According to documents obtained by The Messenger, the actress's legal filings allege a "wrongful retention" of their children that began "on or about" September 20, invoking the Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction.

The court documents outline two main objectives: expediting the return of the children illicitly removed or retained and upholding the "rights to custody" in various contracting states.

The Dark Pheonix star claims that the 'SOS' singer is withholding their daughters' passports and breaking an alleged agreement for the children to return to England with her around the week of September 17.

In the court filing, she emphasized that Jonas "refuses to send the children home to England with their Mother," which she contends represents a violation of her "rights of custody under English law."

Furthermore, the lawsuit also stated that Turner "found out through the media" that the 'Cake By The Ocean' musician had filed for divorce less than a month after an argument on his birthday on August 15.

However, the 'Burnin' Up' singer quickly shut down his estranged wife’s claims and denied that he "abducted" the kids in a statement shared with The Los Angeles Times.

First, a spokesperson for the singer claimed that the pair had "multiple conversations" about the divorce adding that Turner was "aware." They then shared: "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."

The meeting between the pair on September 17 was described as "cordial" and the children have been with their mother since. Jonas allegedly left and the "impression of the meeting was that they had reached an understanding that they would work together towards an amicable co-parenting setup."

According to the artist, Turner then did a U-turn on their agreement and if he was to oblige her and allow the children to relocate to England, he would be "in violation of the Florida Court order".

"Joe is seeking shared parenting with the kids so that they are raised by both their mother and father, and is of course also okay with the kids being raised both in the U.S. and the U.K.," the statement continued. "The children were born in the U.S. and have spent the vast majority of their lives in the U.S. They are American citizens."

Jonas' spokesperson penned that this is "an unfortunate legal disagreement about a marriage that is sadly ending," explaining: "When language like 'abduction' is used, it is misleading at best, and a serious abuse of the legal system at worst," and emphasizing: "The children were not abducted."

"After being in Joe’s care for the past three months at the agreement of both parties, the children are currently with their mother," the rep told the publication.

The statement concluded: "Joe has already disavowed any and all statements purportedly made on his behalf that were disparaging of Sophie. They were made without his approval and are not consistent with his views."
