On September 5th, TMZ reported that Joe filed for divorce, and the couple confirmed the sad news with a joint statement posted on both of their Instagram accounts.
"After four years of wonderful marriage we have mutually decided to amicably end our marriage," the statement reads. "There are many speculative narratives as to why but, truly this is a united decision and we sincerely hope that everyone can respect our wishes for privacy for us and our children."
The "speculative narratives" mentioned in the statement appear to refer to the countless quotes that have been shared with the media by unnamed sources. The majority of those appear to paint Sophie in a bad light, including one that told TMZ: "She likes to party, he likes to stay at home."
Fans have now dug up one of Sophie's old interviews were she calls herself a "homebody", and have called out the unnamed sources at the same time.
Back in 2020, Sophie sat down for a Zoom interview with Conan O'Brien. Speaking about how she was coping with lockdown in the pandemic, Sophie said: "Yeah, I’m an introvert. I’m a homebody. I’m just like, if I could stay home all day I would, so this is great for me. I leave the house, like, once a day anyway, to walk my dogs, and then that’s it."
She went on to add that Joe was actually the "real social butterfly" of the two, saying: "So I struggle to lock him down and have him just spend time with me. It’s like prison for him, but it’s great for me."
Fans have also resurfaced an old TikTok video posted by Joe, where the two agree that Sophie is the homebody.

The contradictions between the source's quote and Sophie's actual comments have prompted fans to urge social media users to take any comments from 'sources' with a pinch of salt. They've also questioned why the 'sources' are trying to spin a negative narrative against Sophie.
Fans have been coming to Sophie's defence over the claims. On Twitter, one user wrote: "the way the media has been portraying sophie turner after the divorce was announced is so weird.. she needs to get behind me immediately."
Another, pointing out the contradictions between Sophie's old interviews and the angle of the quote, added: "Lmao anyone who has followed these two over the years knows how false this headline is."
