According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the exes reached a suitable consensus regarding the separation of their assets while agreeing that no spousal support be awarded to either party.
Sofia Vergara & Joe Manganiello Finally Settle Divorce
Vergara and Manganiello’s divorce settlement was pretty straightforward with the exes asking the court to terminate forever spousal or partner support.
The ex-couple didn’t have kids during their seven years of marriage so there were no custody or child support issues to deal with.
“The parties have entered into a written agreement regarding their property and their marriage or domestic partnership rights, including support, the original of which is being or has been submitted to the court. I request that the court approve the agreement,” the court document filed by Manganiello read.
In November, we broke the news that the former power couple was on the verge of amicably finalizing their divorce when the “Modern Family” actress filed a declaration of disclosure, telling the court that she had turned over all of her financial information to Manganiello.
As is the case with most celebrity divorces, the declaration of disclosure is the last filing before a settlement is reached, and the two parties go their separate ways. Things were particularly uncomplicated for Vergara and Manganiello given that they had an iron-clad prenup to help when things got complicated.
Vergara and Manganiello shared the news of their breakup in July 2023 after fans noticed the “Magic Mike” actor’s tribute to Vergara for her 51st birthday was aloof. The “Hot Pursuit” actress was also seen on multiple occasions without her wedding ring.
Shortly after they shared a joint statement to confirm the rumors, writing:
“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. Sofía and Joe have been growing apart for a while now and are taking some distance from each other to contemplate their future.”
Sofia Vergara Reveals Cause Of Joe Manganiello Split
Last month, the Colombian actress, for the first time, spoke openly about her divorce and what was responsible for it. The mother-of-one broke her silence in an interview, admitting that they called it quits over their contradicting lifestyles.
She explained that she and Manganiello didn’t end things due to bad blood but because they weren’t on the same page about their family goals.
“Well, I’m newly divorced from my second husband [actor Joe Manganiello], who I was with for 10 years,” Vergara began. “My marriage broke up because my husband was younger; he wanted to have kids, and I didn’t want to be an old mom. I feel it’s not fair to the baby. I respect whoever does it, but that’s not for me anymore.”
Vergara has a son, Manolo Gonzalez Vergara, from a previous relationship, while Manganiello remains without any offspring at 47 — a status he hoped to change with his now ex-wife.
The famous actress continued, explaining that she was more ready to have a grandchild “I had a son at 19, who is now 32, and I’m ready to be a grandmother, not a mother. So, if love comes along, he has to come with [his own] children. I’m almost in menopause; it’s the natural way of things. When my son becomes a dad, let him bring the baby to me for a while, and then I’ll give it back to him and go on with my life; that’s what I have to do.”
