Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello have announced that they will be divorcing, after nearly eight years of marriage. The couple shared with PageSix:
“We have made the difficult decision to divorce. As two people that love and care for one another very much, we politely ask for respect of our privacy at this time as we navigate this new phase of our lives.”
Fans have noticed that Manganiello has seemed to distance himself with Vergara in recent social media posts. The couple formally announced their impending divorce on July 17th.
A source close to the pair also revealed, “At the start of Sofia’s big birthday trip those close to her were explaining away Joe’s absence with the excuse that he was busy filming back on the East Coast; that excuse barely held up due to the writer’s strike, but once the actor’s strike took effect, he could have been on the first flight… and he quite clearly is not. So now no one out there with her is even attempting to pretend that it’s not over. It’s over. It’s done.”
This is difficult news for fans of the couple, with Manganiello once calling Vergara “the woman of his dreams”. We will provide updates as they are made available.
