Hollywood stars Sophie Turner, Katy Perry, and Minnie Driver are no strangers to heartbreak as they reveal the shocking ways they learned about the end of their relationships.

In court documents obtained by Fox News Digital, Sophie Turner, known for her role in 'Game of Thrones,' alleged that she found out her estranged husband, Joe Jonas, had filed for divorce 'through the media.' Turner claimed that the sudden end of their four-year marriage took her by surprise.

However, Joe Jonas disputed Turner's claims in a statement to Fox News Digital, asserting that they had discussed the divorce multiple times and that Turner was well aware of his intentions. He also revealed that a Florida court had already issued an order preventing the parents from relocating the children.

Turner filed a lawsuit against Jonas, seeking the immediate return of their children to England.

Joining Turner in the array of celebrities blindsided by their breakups is pop sensation Katy Perry, who famously learned about her divorce from Russell Brand through a text message. In a candid interview with Vogue, Perry expressed her initial shock and the subsequent realization that the split was beyond her control.

Similarly, Minnie Driver, known for her role in 'Good Will Hunting,' found out about her breakup with Matt Damon when he announced it on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show.' Driver openly criticized Damon's announcement, deeming it 'fantastically inappropriate.' Nevertheless, Driver reflects on their relationship with love and emphasizes the importance of moving forward.

Joe Jonas seems to have a pattern of surprising breakups, as Taylor Swift also experienced heartbreak when Jonas broke up with her over a 25-second phone call. Swift, however, has moved on and maintained a strong friendship with Turner, who is currently going through her own divorce from Jonas.

Another example of a shocking split is seen in the case of Chrishell Stause and Justin Hartley, whose divorce was revealed to Stause through a text message. The 'Selling Sunset' star shared her devastation about finding out about the divorce through a message and the subsequent public announcement.

Despite the pain of these revelations, it is evident that these celebrities have found strength and resilience in their journeys towards healing and personal growth.
