Joe Jonas accused of soliciting explicit pics from ‘Zoey 101’ star during his teen
Los Angeles, Sep 9 (IANS) Singer Joe Jonas reportedly asked for explicit photos from ‘Zoey 101’ star Alexa Nikolas when they were both teens.
The former ‘Zoey 101’ star made the allegation amid Joe’s divorce from Sophie Turner.
Taking to X (formerly Twitter), she dropped the bombshell claim on Friday: “I met Joe Jonas when we were teens and let’s just say he’s the guy who wore a purity ring but asked for nudes,” reports aceshowbiz.com.
Surprisingly, Alexa’s claim has backfired.
Many alleged that she only came out with the story now to put the spotlight on herself amid Joe’s divorce news.
“Way to make someone else’s divorce about yourself… celebs are so opportunistic… goodness,” one person reacted in the replies section.
Another snarkily wrote, “So what you’re saying is you don’t know him and you’re coming out of the woodwork saying something weird to make yourself relevant again because he’s trending?”
“yeah, I was fully backing you until this one,” a third said, while another trolled the 31-year-old actress, “And you sent em lmao.” Someone seemingly refused to believe as saying, “please tell me you’re a troll account and not actually Alexa cause regardless, you need to mind your own damn business and talk about something else.”
Someone else, however, backed Alexa as saying, “I, 100 per cent believe this! Always a bit too full of himself, believed his own hype too much! NEVER expected a Goddess like Sophie Turner to marry an inferior mortal, like Joe! Especially, since she’s the Power in the couple! Her success exceeds his, poor boy #TeamSophie #GoddessSophie.”
Neither Joe nor his representative has responded to Alexa’s allegation. Alexa, however, isn’t the first to hint that Joe was sexually active in his teens despite wearing the symbolic jewellery.
During the ‘Jonas Brothers Family Roast’ in 2021, Joe’s soon-to-be ex-wife Sophie joked that he “wasn’t just sticking his fingers in some dumb metal rings.”
She said, “He was sticking his fingers in co-stars, actresses, and even a supermodel or two,” adding that “the rings weren’t a good idea.”
Joe filed for divorce from Sophie on Tuesday after four years of marriage.
In a joint statement released on Wednesday, they said, “After four wonderful years of marriage we have mutually decided to amicably end our marriage. There are many speculative narratives as to why but, truly this is a united decision and we sincerely hope that everyone can respect our wishes for privacy for us and our children.”
Their first daughter Willa was born in July 2020 and their second daughter, mentioned as D.J. in court documents, was born in July 2022.
