Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello are not having marriage “problems,” despite a new report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this inaccurate claim. We’re told it’s “not true.”

According to the repeatedly discredited National Enquirer, even though Vergara and Manganiello are about to celebrate their first wedding anniversary on November 22, their “friends fear it will be their last.” The often unreliable tabloid notes Manganiello was not at the recent Emmy Awards with Vergara, nor was he with her at the Oscars. The publication then quotes a so-called “source” as saying, “Joe had work commitments both times, but it irritates Sofia that he’s not available to her 24/7.” “Sofia wants a kept man, and it’s creating problems,” adds the magazine’s seemingly made-up “source.”

Gossip Cop checked in with Manganiello’s rep, who exclusively tells us the magazine’s assertion that the actor and Vergara are having “problems” is 100 percent “not true.” In fact, the couple recently returned from a vacation in the Turks and Caicos Islands, where they enjoyed some alone time. And on Saturday, Vergara posted a photo on Instagram of them sharing dinner with friends in Los Angeles.

Naturally, Gossip Cop is not remotely surprised by the inaccuracy of the outlet’s story. We busted the publication when it falsely reported Vergara wasn’t going to see Magic Mike XXL because she wasn’t comfortable with the subject matter or its male nudity. That was an interesting claim, considering Vergara was Manganiello’s date to the movie’s premiere.

We also corrected the magazine when it absurdly asserted Vergara wanted the Pope to officiate her wedding to Manganiello. And we shot down the tabloid’s entirely fabricated tale about Vergara having caught Managaniello flirting with a nurse following his appendectomy last spring. None of those contentions made by the Enquirer were accurate, and neither is the latest concocted article about the couple having “problems.”
