On Wednesday night’s Watch What Happens Live, Diplo was asked by a pair of fans about Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner’s divorce and whether he’s spoken to Joe since the news broke.
“I haven’t,” Diplo replied, before host Andy Cohen interjected and brought up how the EDM star “famously” livestreamed Jonas and Turner’s wedding on Instagram.
“Livestreaming had just started happening,” Diplo explained. “I was like, ‘This is the perfect opportunity to livestream something!’ I didn’t know it was a secret … so it was on the news.” The Grammy-winning DJ’s quips drew laughs from both the audience and his fellow interviewee, British singer Rita Ora.
The “Where Are Ü Now” producer went on to clarify that Jonas and Turner had a second wedding — the couple legally married in Las Vegas in May 2019, one month before having a full ceremony with friends and family at Chateau de Tourreau in France — and that he DJed the second wedding for “pretty cheap, maybe for free” to make up for his livestreaming gaffe.
Ultimately, Diplo said, “I wish them all the love,” particularly because they have children: 3-year-old daughter Willa and a 1-year-old daughter born last summer whose name hasn’t been reported.
On Sept. 5, Jonas filed a petition for dissolution of marriage, saying “the marriage between the parties is irretrievably broken.” The day after Jonas filed the petition, the couple released a joint statement on their social media accounts confirming their split. On Thursday (Sept. 21), Turner filed a lawsuit against Jonas demanding the “immediate return of children wrongfully removed or wrongfully retained” to England, where the couple had previously agreed to relocate.
The Jonas Brothers have notched seven top 10 albums on the Billboard 200, including three No. 1s. The Grammy-nominated sibling band has also earned three top 10 singles on the Billboard Hot 100, including the 2019 No. 1 hit “Sucker.” Joe Jonas’ band DNCE has charted a pair of projects on the Billboard 200. Their self-titled debut studio album peaked at No. 17 and spawned the Hot 100 top 10 hit “Cake by the Ocean.” As a soloist, Jonas reached No. 15 on the Billboard 200 with his debut album and No. 9 on the Hot 100 with the Camp Rock soundtrack single “This Is Me” (with Demi Lovato).
As a soloist, Diplo has earned one top 10 hit on the Hot 100: his Grammy-winning “Where Are Ü Now” collaboration with Skrillex and Justin Bieber. The renowned DJ has also charted seven titles on the Billboard 200, peaking with 2015’s Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack Ü (No. 26). Diplo has collected a plethora of Billboard chart achievements as a part of Major Lazer, LSD and Silk City.
