In New York City on a recent Tuesday night, an unexpected scene unfolded. Shortly after the news of Joe Jonas and his wife, “Game of Thrones” actress Sophie Turner’s separation, Turner was seen going out for dinner with Taylor Swift, Jonas’s ex-girlfriend. Swift and Jonas, a member of the Jonas Brothers, had a relationship back in 2008, and since their split occurred just before Swift’s “Fearless” album release, there has been speculation about which songs from the album were inspired by Jonas. Although their breakup initially wasn’t amicable, rumors suggest songs like “You All Over Me” and “Mr. Perfectly Fine” might be about Jonas, a theory Swift hasn’t confirmed. Over the years, Swift and Jonas have apparently reconciled.
Jonas recently filed for divorce from Turner after a four-year marriage, and they have two young daughters together. So, seeing Swift and Turner, arm-in-arm, out in New York City caused quite a stir. Photos even captured them sharing a heartfelt hug. The sight led one observer to tweet about the iconic nature of the encounter, playfully referencing Swift’s song “Mr. Perfectly Fine.” In a display of camaraderie, Turner acknowledged the catchiness of “Mr. Perfectly Fine” on social media, to which Swift responded with praise, referencing Turner’s role as the Queen of the North in “Game of Thrones.”
However, not everyone was pleased with Swift and Turner’s public outing. Some fans, particularly Jonas fans, expressed discomfort over the two women showing unity, suggesting the dinner might have been a deliberate statement.
