Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner, had a love story that seemed like a fairy tale- until it wasn't. Their seemingly perfect marriage took an unexpected turn when Joe filed for divorce this week after four years, stating that his marriage was “irretrievably broken.” However, sharing a joint statement on Instagram (with comments deliberately switched off), the couple expressed that they had mutually decided to amicably end the marriage, leaving fans with an abundance of unanswered questions about the unraveling of their once-idyllic union. Yet amidst the drama, one detail appears to be receiving an excessive amount of attention: the fact that Joe has reportedly been the primary caregiver for the couple's two children while Sophie is out of the country filming a movie. The fact that Joe has garnered praise, while Sophie has faced unwarranted criticism has sparked conversations about how if the roles were reversed, would this even be a noteworthy topic of discussion?


While rumors have been circulating for a while, it's hard not to be a bit skeptical. Especially with stories of a shrewd entrepreneur launching a 'quiet luxury' brand and one of Hollywood's most in-demand actors promoting a new movie, one might question the authenticity of the latest celebrity power couple making their public debut at none other than Beyoncé's birthday concert. When Kylie Jenner and Timothée Chalamet decided to take their romance public, they did so by indulging in some serious PDA right in front of massive crowds. Their very steamy relationship has sent TikTok into an absolute frenzy this week, giving rise to a cascade of memes and snarky comments.
