Joe is fighting a legal battle with Sophie Turner
Joe’s shout-out comes amid his custody battle with Sophie Turner. Recently, Sophie filed a lawsuit against Joe alleging wrongful retention of the couple’s two children following which Joe filed a response. As per People, the lawsuit alleged that Joe refused to let the couple’s two children, Willa and another daughter return to England.
Sophie recently sued Joe
A part of the statement also said that 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 US and the UK,” adding that the children “have spent the vast majority of their lives in the US”.
“This is an unfortunate legal disagreement about a marriage that is sadly ending. When language like ‘abduction’ is used, it is misleading at best, and a serious abuse of the legal system at worst. The children were not abducted,” the statement added.
