Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas are grieving after their beloved pup Waldo Picasso was struck by a car and died on Wednesday.
TMZ says the pet was with the couple’s dog walker in New York City when he “got spooked by a pedestrian, broke free, ran into the street and was struck by a vehicle.” A rep for Joe called it “a freak accident.”
The driver reportedly fled the scene. Sophie and Joe were so distraught that they delayed filing a police report because they had to go to a therapist to deal with the tragic death first.
The newlyweds got Waldo in April 2018.
- Unfortunately, Joe and Sophie won’t get justice. As TMZ points out the “driver cannot be criminally charged with Waldo’s death because the dog is considered property, and the incident is viewed as an accident.”
- Losing a pet can be just as devastating as losing a human loved one.
- Sophie is a dog lover. She adopted the pooch who played her dire wolf on Game Thrones. (io9)
