Sophie Turner enjoyed another girls’ night out with her estranged husband Joe Jonas’ ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift on Thursday in New York City.
The outing — which is Sophie’s second with Taylor this week — comes amid new developments in the Game Of Thrones star, 27, and Joe’s, 34, bitter custody row as she’s now suing him in the hopes of moving their daughters back to their native United Kingdom.
But Sophie didn’t seem to have the messy divorce on her mind as she arrived just moments ahead of Taylor outside the luxury Hotel Barriere Fouquet for dinner.
She was photographed carrying a colorful quilted Louis Vuitton purse that she held in front of her face.
The blonde beauty — who wed Joe back in 2019 — kept it casual in a white T-shirt, a gray maxi skirt and red satin ballet flats.

She entered the restaurant with several close friends in tow.
Minutes later, Taylor rolled up in a chauffeured black SUV with two well-dressed security guards.
The singer — notably dated Joe from July 2008 until their split only a few months later in October — looked ultra chic in a tight black off-the-shoulder top.
It was tucked into a pair of light brown trousers that she cinched into at the waist with a black leather belt.
She strolled the sidewalk in black sandals and a carried her essentials in a black designer purse.
Two evenings earlier, Taylor and Sophie partied until 2AM as they grabbed a low-key dinner at Via Carota restaurant
The blonde duo also enjoyed ‘martinis and caviar bumps’ at the trendy celeb haunt Temple Bar.
A source told PEOPLE that it ‘cheered [Sophie] up’ and that she enjoyed the normalcy of it all.
‘They were normal. Completely normal. Everyone was all excited, but they were normal,’ an insider recalled, adding: ‘Sophie seemed to be enjoying the night.’
Another continued: ‘Taylor is a great friend — Sophie can talk to her about anything. It cheered Sophie up to spend time with Taylor.’
Earlier Thursday, Sophie stepped out with her and Joe’s daughter Willa – after accusing her ex of ‘abducting’ their kids and blindsiding her with his divorce filing in explosive court documents.
Sophie looked happy to be stepping out with her eldest daughter, three, amid her increasingly acrimonious split from the Jonas Brothers rocker, 34, after she claimed he lied in court documents and said a birthday row sparked the end of their marriage.
Joe accused his estranged wife of ‘lying’ in her filing and clarified that their ‘children were not abducted,’ after she petitioned to have them return to the UK.
Sophie filed documents in US District Court for New York to petition for ‘the return of children to England,’ her home country.

Round two! Taylor and Sophie partied until 2AM as they grabbed a low-key dinner at Via Carota restaurant earlier this week
A source told PEOPLE that the hangout ‘cheered [Sophie] up’ amid her relationship woes
Jonas had previously filed for divorce from the actress earlier this month.
The couple, who married in 2019, share daughters Willa and D.J., one.
In documents seen by DailyMail.com, Turner made the claim that Jonas had refused to return the children’s passports, effectively preventing them from traveling back to the UK.
In the filing, she says the exes met on September 17 to discuss a previously planned trip to the UK with her children set for September 20, but Jonas allegedly would not turn over the passports or send the children to the UK on his own.
‘Based on the Father’s express statements that he will not return the children to England and will not return the children’s passports to the Mother, on September 20, 2023, the Mother has submitted her Hague Convention Application for Return to the Central Authority for England & Wales seeking the return of the children to England,’ the filing read.
She added that the move to the UK was not unexpected, as the couple had allegedly planned to spend an extended amount of time there in the near future.
According to Turner, she and the children expected to accompany Jonas on his US tour with the Jonas Brothers, and then when it wrapped up the entire family had planned to travel to the UK and to live at a rented property near her parents’ home.
She claimed that the move was a prelude to a full-time life in the UK, and that the couple had agreed to move their children there as their oldest Willa prepared to begin attending school.
The X-Men actress alleged that she and Jonas toured properties from December 2022 until July of this year, when they discovered a ‘beautiful country property’ in Oxfordshire and they ‘both agreed they would purchase the property for the family’s permanent home.’
They allegedly signed a contract for the property in July and planned to finalize the sale in December of this year.
Last year, Turner and Jonas put their Miami mansion on the market after previously buying it for $11 million.
They sold the property in August at a profit for $15 million, only after they slashed the asking price by $2 million, suggesting they may have been trying to unload it quickly.
In her filing, Turner also disputed Jonas’ claim in his divorce filing that their children had resided in Florida for six months, which would make it easier for a court in that state to decide custody matters.
She appears to allege that a fight on August 15 was a major precipitating event for their separation, and afterward the couple had agreed ‘with some hesitation’ to have the children travel to the US to accompany their father on tour, as Jonas was able to care for them during the day on dates when he was scheduled to perform.

Jonas has since denied Turner’s claims that he blindsided her with the divorce, and argues that their children will be raised in the U.S. because they are American citizens
While Jonas was on tour with his brothers, Sophie was engaged filming the new series Joan in the UK, which would have significantly impacted her ability to care for the children during the limited period that she was on set.
Unlike Jonas’ tour, which would presumably allow him some free time when he wasn’t on stage or in rehearsals, Turner would likely have had little free time while working, as film and television productions often keep actors working for long hours each day on tight schedules.
According to TMZ, the musician allegedly realized his marriage was finished after catching Turner ‘saying and/or doing something’ that irked him on their security camera.
Early reports focused on Jonas’ alleged devotion to their children after parenting them on his own for a short period of time, but critics subsequently defended Turner, pointing out that her work required her husband to share some of the burden for a limited period, and that Jonas should not have been praised for fulfilling his parental obligations.
