Very little public information

As the divorce was only announced last week, there is very little information available publicly about the details of the divorce, and the couple's thoughts and feelings regarding the separation. As time passes, it is likely that there will be more information shared with the public/media.

Joe filed for dissolution of marriage in Miami, Florida, which is the location of the couple's shared home. It seemed to be the best location to file for the dissolution, as it would require very little travel for Joe and Sophie to discuss, and go through with.

Private home life
