Colombian/American actress, Sofía Vergara and her husband, Actor Joe Manganiello have separated and are divorcing after seven years of marriage.
In a statement, the couple, Vergara, 51, and Manganiello, 46, shared: ‘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.’
The couple wed in Florida in 2015 and have no children together.
Sources close to the couple said they had drifted apart due to their ‘different attitudes’ – after first bonding over being opposites.
They said: ‘Joe is a big kid, he loves playing Dungeons & Dragons, he loves wrestling, he is all about video games, superhero movies, comic books, going to concerts, huge NFL fan. He chases fun.
‘He always loves being out and about and just having a good time. And then when it is time to be serious and when it is time to get to work, he turns on that part of himself, but he is always ready to live life to the fullest and go out and just be fun and have fun.
‘This was immediately an attraction for Sofia who is completely the opposite, sure she loves having a good time and going out, but she is more concerned with the finer things in life, the trips, lavish dinners, being a celebrity, and everything that comes with all of that.
‘She has been told her entire life she is super-hot and beautiful. It really has got to her head. She also has a temper and gets upset over stupid things very easily whereas Joe tries to let things bounce off of him and go with the flow.
‘That was not really seen while they were falling in love, but then the true versions of themselves started showing and they just got annoyed with each other, choosing work over hanging out.
‘Then bit by bit, they stopped wanting to be together and stopped hanging out because something so little would often trigger an attitude that would bug them, just their attitudes on everything were completely different and something like that is extremely draining for a relationship and they got to the point where it would be a good day and one thing would be said or done and they would just get upset with each other.
‘It added up to where now it is easier and more relaxing not being together. When people say they will be friendly, they will, but the romance part of things is over. They grew apart from something that could have been really good.
Vergara and Manganiello’s relationship began in 2014, and after a whirlwind romance, the Modern Family alum and the True Blood actor got engaged after six months of dating. They officially became husband and wife on Nov. 22, 2015.(www.naija247news.com).
