  • Joe Jonas told the crowd at a Jonas Brothers concert on Saturday: "It's been a tough week."

  • In a video shared on X, he appeared to address the rumors about his split from Sophie Turner.

  • The singer filed for divorce on September 5, claiming their marriage was"irretrievably broken."

Joe Jonas appeared to address the rumors about his divorce from Sophie Turner at a Jonas Brothers concert over the weekend, telling his fans not to "believe" things that haven't come directly from him.

In a video shared on X by Variety social media editor Katcy Stephan on September 9, the singer took a moment during the concert at Los Angeles' Dodger Stadium to seemingly shut down some of the speculation surrounding his and the "Game of Thrones" actor's separation.

According to Today, Jonas filed for a dissolution of marriage on September 5 in Miami, claiming "the marriage between the parties is irretrievably broken."

He stated in his petition that the couple's two young daughters have been living with him in Miami and other parts of the US, but stated that he wants to "have shared parental responsibility" with British-born Turner, the outlet reported.

The following day the pair confirmed that they had "mutually decided" to end their marriage in a statement posted to both their Instagram accounts.

 

"It's been a tough week," Jonas began, according to Stephan's tweet, although this was not caught on camera.

"I just want to say, look, if you don't hear it from these lips, don't believe it. Okay?" he continued, as the crowd could be heard erupting into cheers.

"Thank you everyone for your love and support. Me and my family love you guys," he concluded.

Since TMZ first reported that Jonas was shopping around for a divorce lawyer more than a week ago, rumors about what has led to the couple's split have been rife.

The day Jonas officially filed a divorce petition, TMZ published a report quoting a source with "direct knowledge" who said that their marriage had broken down because of Turner's "party" lifestyle.

The tabloid website ran another report the next day, this time with a source alleging that Jonas was "less than supportive" of Turner following the birth of their second daughter in 2022.

The couple — who also share a three-year-old daughter named Willa — appeared at events together last summer shortly after their second child was born at Jonas' encouragement, per the unnamed source, but Turner was "uncomfortable" with leaving the house and being photographed.

As the first few reports appeared to paint Jonas in a better light than his soon-to-be ex-wife, some fans speculated on X that Jonas or his PR team were behind the anonymous quotes given to TMZ.

Representatives for Jonas and TMZ did not immediately respond to Insider's requests for comment.

In recent days, public opinion has appeared to turn against Jonas, and the singer has come under scrutiny for some of his problematic past behavior, including romantically pursuing ex-girlfriend Gigi Hadid when she was still a child, breaking up with Taylor Swift in a 27-second phone call, and revealing on a Reddit AMA that he lost his virginity to ex Ashley Green.
