Do you enjoy tall famous women who count Joe Jonas as an ex? Then you’ll love Sophie Turner and Taylor Swift’s Girls Night Out™! This GNO has it all: martinis, tall autumn boots, something called “caviar bumps”, an ill-timed WiFi outage, blonde ponytails, and more.
But first, let’s take our Gossip Time Machine back to 2008. From July to October of that year, 18-year-olds Taylor and Joe were an item. On November 11, Taylor went on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and revealed that Joe had broken up with her “over the phone in 25 seconds.” A few days later, Joe logged onto his MySpace account (!!!) and wrote a statement that claimed Taylor was the one to end their 25-second convo: “Phone calls can only last as long as the person on the other end of the line is willing to talk.”
After a couple years of musical he-said/she-said (The Jonas Brothers tracks “Much Better” and “Paranoid” were allegedly about Taylor, a bunch of Taylor’s songs from Speak Now, including “Last Kiss”, were probably about Joe), the exes decided to let bygones be bygones and become friends again. In 2015, they even went on a double-date with Joe’s then-girlfriend, Gigi Hadid, and Taylor’s then-boyfriend, Calvin Harris.
Joe and Sophie Turner began dating in 2016 (he was 27, she was 20) and got hitched in 2019. This month, after four years of marriage and two kids, their marriage very publicly blew up. Lots of mystery “sources” telling TMZ that Sophie’s a hard-partier who ignores her poor babies. It’s messy, it’s sexist, it makes Joe Jonas and his PR crisis team look like the bad guys. Probably because they are.
Since the divorce news broke, Sophie has been papped in Spain, where she’s filming the British biopic series, Joan, about 1980’s jewel thief Joan Hannington. But now, the bitch is back (and please know I mean that in the most complimentary way possible). Last night, Sophie stepped out in New York City for a very special (and public) Girls Night Out™ with Taylor Goddamn Swift.
Here are the pap pics/footage:

Damn. Arm-in-arm. What a statement! That statement being: Fuck Joe Jonas. Predictably, the Internet is going wild. Let’s just say the term “iconic” is being used even more than it usually is, in this, the year of our Lord 2023.
Page Six has all the details: first, the gals grabbed dinner at “downtown hotspot” Via Carota. Sophie “showed her stomach in a plunging halter top, matching pants and sneakers”, and “accessorized with a gold lock necklace, a black purse and a sweater tied around her waist.” Taylor opted for “an EB Denim trench coat, a burnt orange dress and brown boots”.
After dinner, Taylor and Sophie hit up “celebrity haunt” Temple Bar. A source reported that the pair enjoyed “many martinis with caviar bumps, which they seemed to love.” OK, what the hell is a “caviar bump”? Apparently, it’s a food trend where a customer pays $20 to “luxuriously lick” fancy caviar off the back of their hand. And I guess the name is an ode to snorting a line of coke? Alrighty then.
Unfortunately for Temple Bar, the moment Tay-Tay and Sophie arrived, “the Internet went out.” Dear God! Page Six’s source says, “the manager was losing his mind.” But this tragic technical issue didn’t put a damper on Taylor and Sophie’s GNO. The eyewitness says the pair appeared to be having “a fun time” before leaving with their security team in tow.
No word on where Sophie and Taylor went after Temple Bar. But I’m counting down the minutes until another “insider” informs TMZ that it was actually Sophie’s night with the kids and she didn’t stumble home ‘til dawn. Absentee mother! Burn her at the stake! Long live Joe Jonas!
