Just call Sophie Turner “Ms. Perfectly Fine” amid her divorce from Joe Jonas. Ever since the couple confirmed their split earlier this month, Turner has become fast friends with another one of Jonas’ famous exes: Taylor Swift. In the last two weeks, Swift and Turner have had two girls’ nights out in New York City. These spottings were already major; however, their friendship has recently hit a new high.

On Sept. 27, Page Six reported Swift offered Turner and her two daughters, Willa and Delphine, her Tribeca apartment as she works out her custody arrangement with Jonas. According to the outlet, Swift uses the New York apartment as an investment property and gifted it to the Game of Thrones actor as a temporary home. It seems Turner has comfortably settled in, as Page Six photographed her “loading two big suitcases and a travel crib into a black SUV.”

That same day, Turner was also seen taking a stroll around the neighborhood with a friend.

Swift’s latest ‘girls-girl’ gesture comes a week after their multiple New York dinner dates. On Sept. 21, Turner and Swift were spotted leaving dinner at the Barrière Fouquet Hotel separately. The two — who reportedly ordered a few martinis and caviar bumps — were also joined by Haim sisters (ahem, also close pals with Swift) Este, Danielle, and Alana. What a link-up.

Though Turner and Swift weren’t arm-in-arm like their first outing, the two seemingly understood the assignment in the fashion department. Both sporting muted colors, Turner wore a white T-shirt and gray midi skirt while Swift flaunted a black off-the-shoulder top with beige trousers. Then, three days prior, the duo were photographed grabbing dinner together at Via Carota.

These back-to-back friendship moments come weeks after Turner and Jonas, her husband of four years, filed for divorce in early September. The former couple, who started dating in 2016, officially confirmed their separation in a joint Instagram statement on Sept. 6. Swift and Turner’s ‘single girl summer’ activities feel like a breath of fresh air, especially since details of the divorce have gotten messier. On Sept. 21, the same day as the friends’ second dinner date, Turner reportedly sued her ex-husband for not allowing their children to go back to England with her.

As for Swift, her newly elevated friendship with Turner is interesting. Although Swift’s brief relationship with Jonas famously didn’t end well in 2008 (Alexa, play the revamped version of “Better Than Revenge”), she’s actually had a lot of sweet interactions with Turner during her marriage to Jonas.

The two first met when filming an episode of The Graham Norton Show in 2019, where they shrugged off any potential awkwardness and embraced one another. Since then, Turner has been a vocal Swiftie, even praising the breakup song Swift wrote about Jonas, “Mr. Perfectly Fine.” Last year, she gushed about her love of Swift’s album 1989 on social media, so it’s only fitting for her to reconnect with her favorite singer just as she’s reentering her 1989 era.

Turner also showed her love for Swift just weeks before she announced her divorce from Jonas. Fans noticed that Turner wore a “Mr. Perfectly Fine” friendship bracelet to the opening night of the Jonas Brothers’ tour in mid-August. Perhaps she was hinting she and Swift’s friendship would be fans’ new obsession for the fall.
