Shortly thereafter Joe Jonas filed for divorce Sophie TurnerHe subtly revised the lyrics of the Jonas Brothers ballad that he wrote in her honor.
During the concert on Wednesday, September 6, in Phoenix, Arizona, Jonas, 34, changed the lyrics to “Hesitate.”
“Don’t be afraid, because I’m on their side,” Jonas sang on Wednesday, according to concert footage shared via X (formerly Twitter).
“Hesitate,” which appeared on the band’s 2019 LP Happiness beginsoriginally with the line “Don’t be afraid, I’m on your side.”
Jonas has long been open about the fact that “Hesitate” was inspired by his romance with 27-year-old Turner.
“’Hesitate’ is a song I wrote. It’s like my vows before I wrote my vows. It’s my promise to Sophie,” he said during the Jonas Brothers’ 2020 documentary. In pursuit of happiness. “I can tell from the audience that it’s definitely these other people’s songs. I see couples hugging each other. I see someone, this song got them through something.”
He continued: “For me, it takes me to a whole different universe. Every time I close my eyes I see her walking down the aisle again.”
When the Jonas Brothers got started The trip In August, “Hesitate” had a permanent spot on the three-hour setlist. Every night, Jonas dedicated the number to Turner, regardless of whether she was present in the crowd. (The game of Thrones Alum was only present for the group’s opening night in New York City on August 12 due to their filming schedule in England.)
Since then, Jonas has sung the OG lyrics on other dates The trip with brothers Kevin Jonas And Nick Jonasincluding the concert on Friday, September 8th in Las Vegas.
Joe and Turner married in 2019, shortly before welcoming two daughters: Willa, 3, and a second child, 14 months, whose name has not been publicly revealed. Us weekly confirmed on Tuesday, September 5 — the day before Joe’s lyric swap — that he had filed for divorce after four years of marriage. The DNCE frontman noted in his filing that their relationship was “irretrievably broken.”
“After four wonderful years of marriage, we have mutually decided to end our marriage amicably,” Joe and the English native wrote in a joint Instagram statement on Wednesday, hours before the Phoenix concert. “There are many speculative narratives as to why, but it is truly a shared decision and we sincerely hope that everyone can respect our desire for privacy for ourselves and our children.”
A source later told Us that the couple had been going through a difficult period in their marriage “for a while” before announcing their split. “Friends could see that there had been a breakup between the two for some time and their connection just didn’t seem to be quite the same as it had been in the past,” the insider explained earlier this month. “Joe didn’t let many people know that their problems went beyond that and that they had been struggling with their marriage for longer than they wanted to admit.”
