Sofia Vergara and her husband Joe Manganiello did NOT got into a huge fight because she supposedly often brags about how much money she makes, despite a made-up tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this claim. We’re told it’s “not true.”

Vergara has been the highest-paid actress on television for the past five years thanks to her role on “Modern Family” and various endorsement deals. And now according to the National Enquirer, the actress’s success has gone to her head. A so-called “source” tells the magazine Manganiello recently called out his wife for allegedly boasting about her salary in public, and she “exploded” on him.

The tabloid’s dubious insider claims Vergara snapped at her husband, “Oh, did I hurt Senor Macho Man’s feelings?” The “source” then adds, “That cruel-sounding crack really did hurt Joe’s feelings and Sofia started screaming, ‘Cruel, you’re calling me cruel?'” The outlet’s seemingly nonexistent insider goes on to say the couple’s fight “raged for a good 10 minutes, until Sofia suddenly started sobbing, then crawled into Joe’s lap and wailed, ‘I’m so sorry! I must sound like an idiot! Next time I open my big mouth about money, just give me a big spanking, honey!”

Despite how ridiculous this story seems and how fake these quotes sounds, Gossip Cop still checked in with a rep for Manganiello, who exclusively assures us it’s “not true.” We’re told Vergara doesn’t brag about her money, nor have she and her husband ever fought over her finances in any way. Unfortunately, the Enquirer doesn’t have a great track record when it comes to accurately reporting about the couple, so this latest piece of fiction isn’t a surprise.

Gossip Cop recently corrected the tabloid for falsely alleging Vergara and Manganiello were having marriage problems. And shortly before that, we busted the magazine’s claim Vergara caught Manganiello flirting with a nurse. Much like those tall tales, this latest story is pure fiction.
