Jodie Turner-Smith has initiated divorce proceedings, ending her nearly four-year marriage to Joshua Jackson due to what sources describe as an “unhealthy” relationship. The British actress, 37, and Jackson, 45, are dedicated to co-parenting their daughter, Juno Rose Diana Jackson, amidst their separation.
According to insiders, Turner-Smith decided to end the marriage because she found herself on a different life path than Jackson. Despite their initial casual relationship, the couple tied the knot in December 2019 after Turner-Smith proposed during a New Year’s Eve holiday in Nicaragua. However, their paths diverged, leading to their decision to part ways. The couple deeply cares for their daughter and aims to ensure her well-being as they move forward separately.
TMZ reported that Turner-Smith filed for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason behind the split. The date of separation, September 13, came shortly after the couple attended New York Fashion Week together, marking the official end of their union. Notably, they are seeking joint custody of their daughter, born in 2020, and Turner-Smith is not seeking spousal support, indicating an amicable approach to their divorce.
Celebrity divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, known for her work with high-profile clients like Kim Kardashian and Britney Spears, is representing Turner-Smith in the divorce proceedings. Despite rumors about their relationship troubles surfacing in September 2022 when they stopped following each other on social media, Jackson had previously expressed his admiration for his wife’s beauty and talent in interviews. Turner-Smith, too, had shared insights into their relationship’s beginnings, describing it as a “two, three-year one-night stand.”
The couple’s decision to part ways underscores their commitment to ensuring their daughter’s well-being amidst changing circumstances. Turner-Smith’s focus on motherhood and her career, coupled with the couple’s evolving paths, led to the realization that their marriage had become unhealthy for both parties. Despite the challenges, they aim to co-parent their daughter, fostering an environment where she can continue to thrive.
For further information, representatives for Jodie Turner-Smith and Joshua Jackson have been contacted, but no official statements have been released at this time.
