Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner are trying to keep things "positive" amid news of their impending divorce.

"People are trying to be negative towards both of them but they are trying to keep things as positive as possible knowing there's always a lot of tension in a divorce," a source close to the pair told PEOPLE. "They're two incredibly scrutinized people. This is incredibly stressful for them, but everything between them has been very collaborative."

The source also told PEOPLE that the sale of the former couple's home in Miami was "coordinated" by the couple together and "they made a profit on it."

"It was something they both wanted to do. Everything has been very collaborative. The sale of the house wasn't in advance of a divorce specifically as sometimes people do, but it does make it easier," they added.

On Tuesday, Jonas, 34, filed for divorce from his wife of four years in Miami. The filing claimed that “the marriage between the parties is irretrievably broken,” according to documents obtained by PEOPLE.

News of the divorce from Turner, 27, did not come as a "surprise" to the people around them, as they spent "the whole summer apart," claimed a source who knows the couple.

"They were not separated but they've been living separate lives for months," the source said.

The filing came days after PEOPLE reported that the Jonas Brothers musician had retained a divorce lawyer despite continuing to wear his wedding band. According to the source, Jonas and Turner "haven't gotten along in a while, but they're hoping to resolve this all amicably."

The former couple has a prenup in place, per the divorce filing.

The pair turned the comments off on their respective posts.
