Sources Close to Sofía Vergara and Joe Manganiello Revealed in Detail What Led to Their Divorce
After 8 years together, 7 of those as a married couple, Sofía Vergara and Joe Manganiello stunned the world with the news of their split on July 2023. Although the reasons why then were still a mystery, the truth has finally been revealed by people close to the two stars.
Joe and Sofía always seemed like ultimate soulmates.
Manganiello and Vergara have been together since 2014. He was smitten with her long before they actually met, so he didn’t take long to propose. The couple tied the knot in November 2015 and seemed blissful throughout their marriage. Joe said they “knew right away”.
Joe once said about their union: “It’s such an easy relationship — easy in all the right ways. Looking back on the relationships I had before this, I think the universe was giving me some tough practice, so I’d get this right.” But we know that no relationship is perfect, and it seemed like Sofía and Joe couldn’t work through some hurdles they’d encountered.
Why they decided to separate.
The couple’s official statement regarding their split was pretty standard: “We have made the difficult decision to divorce. As two people who 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.” But close sources shed more information on what was happening behind the scenes.
Those close to Sofía and Joe noted that while they had a lot of love and passion for each other, they liked different things.
“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,” a source revealed. “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.”
On the other hand, Sofía is “the complete opposite,” more into the celebrity lifestyle with fancy dinners and trips. Ultimately, their differences created a distance between them.
“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. 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,” the source explained.
“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,” they added.
Our hearts go out to Sofía and Joe at this tough time, we genuinely believe they will find their soulmates eventually. Meanwhile, let’s remind ourselves that love still exists with one of the most resilient and fun Hollywood couples — Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively! Their relationship never fails to entertain us and fill our hearts with hope that everyone has that particular person reserved for them.
