Sophie Turner Praises ‘Hero’ Taylor Swift for Giving Her Kids a ‘Safe Space’ Amid Joe Jonas Divorce

Taylor Swift is anything but an anti-hero, as far as Sophie Turner is concerned. In an interview with British Vogue published Wednesday (May 15), the Game of Thrones actress opened up about temporarily living with her daughters in the pop star’s New York City apartment last year amid her divorce from Joe Jonas, calling the pop superstar an “absolute hero” for supporting her through the challenging time.

According to the publication, Turner had long felt uncomfortable cultivating a relationship with Swift given the 14-time Grammy winner’s past romance with the Jonas Brothers band member. Things changed, however, when the Do Revenge star split from Jonas.

When she arrived in New York City last fall to sort out a custody disagreement with her ex, she reached out to Swift for rental recommendations. Instead, the “Karma” musician offered up her own place for free.

“I’ve never been more grateful to anyone than I am for her because she took my children and me, and provided us with a home and a safe space,” said Turner, sho shares 3-year-old Willa and 1-year-old Delphine with Jonas. “She really has a heart of gold.”

During that time, Swift was often spotted hanging out and grabbing dinner with Turner in the city. In October, the pair attended one of Travis Kelce’s Kansas City Chiefs games at MetLife Stadium together.

Simultaneously, gossip sites began painting Turner as an inattentive mother with an unhealthy love for partying. “It hurt because I really do completely torture myself over every move I make as a mother – mum guilt is so real!” she said of the rumors. “I just kept having to say to myself, ‘None of this is true. You are a good mum and you’ve never been a partier.’”

“There were some days that I didn’t know if I was going to make it,” Turner added. “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.”

Turner also said that she’s now focused on forming a healthy co-parenting relationship with Jonas, who filed for divorce in September. Shortly afterward, the pair posted a joint statement calling the split a “united decision” and writing, “We have mutually decided to amicably end our marriage.”

Later that month, Turner sued Jonas for the “wrongful retention” of their two children in New York. By mid-October, however, they tentatively resolved their custody battle after a four-day mediation period. “After a productive and successful mediation, we have agreed that the children will spend time equally in loving homes in both the U.S. and the UK.,” they said in a joint statement shared with Billboard. “We look forward to being great co-parents.”
