Shortly after Taylor and Sophie's night out, Sophie and Joe's divorce reached a new level of messy, with news breaking on September 22 that Sophie was suing Joe.
The lawsuit, which was filed in New York, accused her ex-partner of not allowing their two young daughters to return to their "forever home" in Britain.
The pair allegedly had an agreement that Sophie (who has recently finished filming her latest project in the UK) would travel to New York to collect her daughters. However, when she arrived on September 17, the lawsuit claims Joe allegedly wouldn't let the kids leave.
“The Father has prevented the children’s return to England, which is a breach of the Mother’s rights of custody under English law, England being the children’s habitual residence,” the suit says.
Now, Taylor and Sophie have been spotted out in New York together following the news that the actress was suing her ex-husband.
For some people, this was a surprising turn of events, with some assuming their only shared connection was Mr. Perfectly Fine himself: Joe. But the pair have actually had a much longer friendship!
Have they always been this close? Or has Sophie's recent split drawn them closer? We can't say...but it is clear Taylor Swift is friends with Sophie Turner and is supporting her friend during this difficult time.
