Jodie Turner-Smith is living her best life — with some help from Beyoncé — after filing for divorce from husband Joshua Jackson.

The model, 37, took to Instagram on Thursday, October 5, to share a photo of herself posing in a white tank top, jeans and a bucket hat. Beyoncé’s track “I’m That Girl” from the Renaissance album was playing in the background of the post.

Turner-Smith’s social media platforms have been business as usual with various fashion snaps since news broke about her split from Jackson, 45. Us Weekly confirmed on Monday, October 2, that Turner-Smith filed for divorce from Jackson after four years of marriage. In her petition, she cited irreconcilable differences for the split and listed September 13 as the duo’s date of separation.

“Joshua was clearly caught off guard by Jodie’s decision to divorce,” an insider exclusively told Us. “They had their issues, as many couples do — especially two busy actors who are also juggling a child. Joshua obviously didn’t realize it was this bad, that Jodie was this unhappy.”

“Partially, it’s age. I’m old enough to be able to do this. Partially it’s about finding somebody in the right moment of life,” he told the Times in April. “If we had met five years earlier we probably would have had a torrid affair, but all the rest of this stuff, I was just not ready.

And now we have this beautiful baby who is literally the manifestation of that love. It is impossible for me to look into the face of my child without feeling love for my wife.”
