Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas’ relationship timeline, from meeting on Insta to rumoured divorce

Why am I so upset?

It’s everywhere – the alleged breakdown of Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner’s marriage has left us all shook. Although I was initially jealous of Sophie, like all Camp Rock fans would be, the news of their split is unexpected and obviously sad. Looking back at Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner’s relationship timeline is bittersweet. I feel like a fake fan for missing the signs their marriage was headed for divorce, and so can’t help but try and work out where it all went wrong.

Here’s the complete Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner relationship timeline:

2016: The pair connected through Instagram DMs

After multiple attempts of others trying to set them up, the eldest Jonas Brother and Game of Thrones actress eventually followed each other on Instagram in 2016. The pair then first connected over Instagram DM, with Sophie not expecting to like Joe at first. Sophie told Harper’s Bazaar UK: “We were following each other on Instagram and he direct-messaged me one fine day, out of the blue.”

She even admitted in an interview with Elle that she “thought he would be such a dick” and took some of her rugby boy mates with her, worried he might be catfishing her. But as we all know, that wasn’t the case. Soon they fell for each other after a night spent drinking hard together at a pub in the UK. The ale will do that to you, rest assured.
