After nearly four years of marriage, Jodie Turner-Smith has filed for divorce from Joshua Jackson.
Turner-Smith, 37, on Monday submitted divorce papers in the Los Angeles Superior Court to end her marriage with the 45-year-old Dawson’s Creek actor.
In her filing, Turner-Smith cited “irreconcilable differences” as reason for the divorce, according to Entertainment Tonight.
Court papers indicate Jackson and Turner-Smith have been separated since Sept. 13, 2023. Neither actor has commented publicly on the divorce.
Jackson and the Queen & Slim star met in 2018 and tied the knot shortly afterward, when they obtained a marriage licence in August 2019. The couple did not have an official wedding until December 2019.

A year later in April 2020, the couple welcomed their first child, now three-year-old daughter Juno Rose Diana Jackson.
In her divorce filing, Turner-Smith requested joint custody of their daughter. She also requested Jackson pay for her lawyer’s fees, and no alimony payments.
In a May 2021 interview on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Turner-Smith said she and Jackson had never expected their relationship to be serious or long-lasting. Turner-Smith quipped that she and Jackson had a one-night stand that evolved into a “three-year one-night stand.”
