Many have wondered if they should try to be friends with their exes, but what about their exes' ex-wives? That's what Taylor Swift has done with Sophie Turner, who split from Joe Jonas at the end of this summer. Turner and Swift became friends during the former's marriage to Jonas, but now that the pair have split (and had some major divorce drama this Autumn), Swift has stood by her friend, and they've been spotted out together multiple times.

In case you need a little refresher, Swift and Jonas dated in 2008. Their relationship ended after Jonas reportedly broke up with Swift over a 27-second phone call. After their split, Swift seemingly wrote several songs about Jonas on her "Fearless," "Speak Now," and "Red" albums. Although she and Jonas appeared to not be on speaking terms for years, that all seemingly changed once Swift became friends with Turner. Once the actor grew close with Swift, the "Cruel Summer" singer appeared to put her past with Jonas behind her.

But we also know Swift was a major fan of Turner way before they connected as friends. Back in 2019, Swift opened up to Entertainment Weekly about some of the inspirations for her 2016 album "Reputation" and it included an unexpected one: "Game of Thrones." Swift started watching the show in 2016 while working on the album. ""So much of my imagination was spent on 'Game of Thrones,'" she told the outlet. She explained that she took things that were happening to her and added a "Game of Thrones" filter for different songs, adding, "'I Did Something Bad' I wrote after Arya and Sansa conspire to kill Littlefinger." And of course, Turner played Sansa (Swift also told EW she wanted Sansa to sit on the Iron Throne). So in a way, Swift and Turner's friendship was a little preordained.
