Sophie Turner recalls dealing with ‘mom guilt’ as children got caught in a divorce crossfire 

In September 2023, after Joe Jonas filed for divorce from Sophie Turner, the actress sued her ex for alleged "wrongful detention," accusing him of refusing to allow their daughters to return to England. In October, they reached a temporary custody agreement. "After a productive and successful mediation, we have agreed that the children will spend time equally in loving homes in both the US and the UK. We look forward to being great co-parents," they said in a joint statement in October.

The actress, in an interview with Vogue, recalled going through ‘mom guilt’ during the custody battle. She said, “I remember I was on set, I was contracted to be on set for another two weeks, so I couldn't leave. My kids were in the States and I couldn’t get to them because I had to finish Joan.” In the same interview, the actress shared how she was initially hesitant of standing up for her rights. She said, “There were some days that I didn't know if I was going to make it. I would call my lawyer saying, 'I can't do this. I just can't.' I was just never strong enough to stand up for myself. And then, finally, after two weeks of me being in a rut, she reminded me that it was my children I was fighting for. Once anyone says to me, 'Do it for your kids,' I'm doing it. I wouldn't do it for myself, but I'll find the strength for them.”
