Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner had been navigating marriage challenges before announcing their separation, a source tells Us Weekly.

“They had been struggling with issues long before this moment and tension had been building due to their hectic schedules,” the insider exclusively tells Us. “Joe was always gone and is now on tour, and she was always away filming.”

Jonas, 34, is currently touring with brothers Kevin Jonas and Nick Jonas on the Jonas Brothers’ The Tour, which kicked off in August in New York City. Aside from the opening gig at Yankee Stadium, Turner, 27, has been notably absent from many of the live shows as she continued filming across the pond in England.

According to the source, phone calls between Joe and Turner became more infrequent and text messages “seemed more forced.” The insider adds that the “spark they once had seemed to fizzle” amid their busy schedules.
