‘Irreconcilable differences’: Jodie Turner-Smith files for divorce from Joshua Jackson after 4 years of marriage

Jodie Turner-Smith Files for Divorce from Joshua Jackson After 4 Years of Marriage

As the internet was just getting over the Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner’s divorce drama, another shocker arrived, marking its name on the list of recent Hollywood breakups!

In a surprising turn of events, actress Jodie Turner-Smith has recently made the difficult decision to file for divorce from her husband of four years, Joshua Jackson, with whom she shares a three-year-old daughter, Juno Rose Diana Jackson. The news has sent shockwaves through Hollywood and their fans, as the couple had been seen as one of the industry’s most beloved and seemingly unbreakable pairs. Known for their undeniable chemistry both on and off screen, their whirlwind romance captivated fans worldwide. Nevertheless, it appears that their relationship faced challenges that ultimately led to this heartbreaking decision. 

According to sources close to TMZ, it has been noted that their date of separation was September 13. However, it wasn’t until this week that Jodie, 37, filed for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences”. 

Many sources close to the couple reveal that despite their best efforts to work through their issues, Turner-Smith and Jackson were unable to find common ground and make their marriage work. Reports also claim that Joshua Jackson has been left ‘heartbroken’ over his split from his wife Jodie Turner-Smith, who filed for divorce on Monday after nearly being married since late 2019. That’s not it! New sources exclusively revealed to DailyMail.com that the Dawson’s Creek alum, 45, “isn’t thrilled” about the termination of his marriage – while insisting that there was no foul play involved and that their union had simply “run its course”.

“Joshua is heartbroken over the impending divorce, he always thought that he would be married and grow old with his family, and everything would be happily ever after,” the insider said. “He had the dream scenario in his mind, and Jodie was his person and the person he thought he would be with forever.”

The source added that Joshua’s primary concern is his young child as the Canadian actor now looks ahead to a life of co-parenting. “He never wanted this for their daughter,” the insider continued.

‘They both are great parents and will continue to be, he just hates that they won’t be together as a couple for their daughter anymore. They will always be connected through her.’ 

The insider also claimed that Joshua would love to reunite with his estranged wife, adding: “He would have loved nothing more than to still be with Jodie and in a perfect world would probably even take her back if she were to stop the divorce, but now that they have got to this place, he is going to have to accept it.” The source also insisted that there had been no bad behavior on either side, saying that the relationship had simply reached a natural end.

“Nothing horrible happened between the two like infidelity, the relationship just went its course, and it is just a sad time,” the source said. “Joshua isn’t thrilled about it, but as we all know, life doesn’t always work out the way you’d like it to work out.”

We speculate that the pressures of their demanding careers and conflicting priorities took a toll on their relationship, leaving them with no choice but to part ways romantically. On the other hand, they seemed to have remained united when it came to raising their daughter. As she told Bustle back in December, “I think the bottom line is, I accept the thorns that come with the rose. I accept them for me. I don’t accept them for my daughter.” “Historically, women have always been asked to choose between being great mothers and great at their careers,” she continued before adding, “Josh has always tried to maintain that I would always have all the support that I needed so that I could do both.” 

Despite all that has transpired within a few hours, it is quite surprising that the news has become public so suddenly, as it was only a few days ago that we recently got to see the couple together as Jackson and Turner-Smith spent time together for her 37th birthday, stepping out in September for a celebration in New York City. They also recently stepped out together for a J. Crew event, walking the red carpet during New York Fashion Week.

However, little did anyone know that behind closed doors, a beautiful love story was ending soon, as now it has captured the attention of media outlets and fans worldwide. Take a look at the pictures below as more details about their divorce will be disclosed soon.
