Well, that was fast! Sophie Turner is decidedly already over ex-husband Joe Jonas as she flaunted her new romance with British aristocrat Peregrine “Perry” John Dickinson Pearson in Paris last weekend. The pair were seen kissing on a street corner—how romantic!—just a few months after both of them split from their significant others.
Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas made quite the ruckus in September with their divorce and subsequent custody battle. While they’ve agreed to settle in private and have come to a temporary custody agreement, fans are watching their every move to see how it plays out. And those eagle-eyed fans were the ones to spot the actress and aristocrat sharing a smooch. Keep reading to find out more about the Game of Thrones actress’ new beau.
Over the weekend, Sophie Turner was spotted on a street corner with Perry Pearson, heir to the 4th Viscount Cowdray, a county in Sussex. According to an eye witness, the pair were seen “chatting and laughing a lot” as they walked along the street. Sophie kept it low-key in an all-black outfit paired with a bright red baseball cap, while Pearson sported jeans, a black peacoat, and a tan scarf. The gentleman also removed his gray cap before grabbing Sophie by her coat and pulling her in for a kiss.
“He then took his hat off and leaned in to give her a big kiss. After the kiss, they parted ways,” the eagle-eyed fan reports. Though they left in separate cars, the lovebirds were spotted again later that day at Paris’s Stade de France for the Rugby World Cup, where the mother-of-two presented the trophy to an adoring crowd.
Who is Perry Pearson, Sophie Turner’s new man?
The aristocrat that has seemingly won Sophie’s heart is the eldest son of Michael Orlando Weetman Pearson and Marina Rose Cordle. He is reportedly worth $270M, and based on the pictures, appears to be quite keen about Sophie.
Pearson is newly single, having only split from his last long-term girlfriend in July. King Charles III’s goddaughter, Princess Maria-Olympia of Greece and Denmark, was his last beau, though rumors about their breakup swirled when he failed to show up to her 27th birthday party in July.
Many of Sophie Turner’s fans were very happy for her and her budding romance. But others took Joe’s side, and were wondering where her kids were while she was out and about in Paris.
“It did not take her long…,” one user posted in a comment on Reddit. “Maybe Joe will have better luck with the custody battle. She is now in love with another one, so she won’t be all stressed out about having the kids for herself.” But another user defended Sophie, replying to the comment, “Sure, keep telling yourself that. Like who a woman is dating in any way affects how much she loves her kids.”
Another user shared her well wishes for Sophie while also throwing a bit of shade at Joe, writing, “I hope this one works out for her. A much better choice on paper, and at least he’s taller than she is. She could wear heels again without worrying about her man’s ego. Good for her!”
“She deserves happiness!” one fan commented. “I hope she finds it with him.”
