Jodie Turner-Smith Files For Divorce From Joshua Jackson


British actor Jodie Turner-Smith has filed for divorce to end her marriage to Canadian actor Joshua Jackson in Los Angeles Superior Court, People reported.

Jackson and Turner-Smith married in late 2019, and their first child, a daughter, was born in April 2020.

This was the first marriage for both actors.

A source confirmed to People that Turner-Smith has requested 50/50 split custody in her filing.

The couple celebrated her 37th birthday in New York City on September 9, and were also recently photographed at New York Fashion Week. However, Turner-Smith attended last week’s Albie Awards alone, hosted by George Clooney.

Turner-Smith previously said that she had been a fan of Jackson’s since his days on Dawson’s Creek and that they first met at Usher’s 40th birthday party in 2018.’

“When I first met my husband, we had a one-night stand,” the actress revealed on Late Night with Seth Meyers in 2021. “We’re in a two, three-year one-night stand now.”

Jackson and Turner-Smith fuelled rumours of an impending wedding in August 2019 after they appeared to pick up a marriage licence in Beverly Hills, California. PEOPLE later reported that the couple married in December 2019.

In April 2021, the Murder Mystery 2 actress told PEOPLE how lucky she and Jackson were to have met.
