Remember When Joe Jonas Accidentally Visited a Gay Club? Pride Source Remembers

It’s time to focus on a more lighthearted Joe Jonas moment

The tea on Joe Jonas and soon-to-be ex-wife Sophie Tucker must be mighty sweet, given the incessant attention their breakup has received. Did Joe cheat? Is Sophie a bad mom? Will there be new shirtless photos of Joe — or heck, Sophie — coming out soon?

Jonas himself is cautioning fans against believing the rumor mill. “If you don’t hear it from these lips, don’t believe it,” he told the crowd at a recent Jonas Brothers concert in L.A. “Me and my family love you guys.”

Jonas, 34, and Turner, 27, have two children together. Daughter Willa is 3, and a second daughter is now 14 months. The divorce appears contentious, and Jonas is taking a lot of the heat for it.

Some outlets are claiming that Jonas himself is behind a series of negative PR stories focused on Tucker, especially her parenting style, with many fans calling for Jonas to defend the mother of his children in the face of the attacks. Old quotes have resurfaced, too, including instances when he blamed ex-girlfriends Taylor Swift and Demi Lovato for those breakups.

We say it’s time to focus on a more lighthearted Joe Jonas moment — that time he dished with Pride Source about visiting a gay club in 2015.

It was a more innocent time then, when Jonas told Editorial Director Chris Azzopardi that he’d recently gone to a gay club with brother Nick Jonas. “It was really fun!” he revealed. Perhaps Joe can soothe his wounded heart at a queer club? After all, there are plenty of thirsty fellas willing to help take care of him.

In that Pride Source interview, Jonas confessed it wasn’t his first time hanging out with queer men. He also spent some time in a gay bar in Europe, unbeknownst to him… at first.

How did he figure out he was among a predominately gay crowd? “Getting hit on by more men than you would usually get hit on by,” he said. “I think that's happened to a few people. But, you know, it was cool. We went out with some of our friends who are gay. I just think we live in a world where obviously it's not a big deal – it's fine – and you can have fun wherever you go and make the best of it."
