Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello are NOT fighting over money, despite a report from one of the tabloids. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk the claim. We’re told the story is simply made up.

According to the National Enquirer, Vergara “has the bankroll of a Rockefeller but the stinginess of a scrooge.” The magazine claims that even though she’s currently the highest-paid actress on TV, she still “pinches every nickel and dime as if it’s her last — and it’s driving husband Joe Manganiello crazy.” The piece goes on to say Manganiello is “annoyed by his new wife’s frugal ways, and it’s starting to drive a rift between them.”

“Joe has always been very generous with his money. He doesn’t quite get why she’s so tight with it,” a so-called “insider” alleges. “Sofia grew up poor, so it’s a lifelong habit that’s not likely to change.”

The supermarket tabloid goes on to describe Vergara as “adept at hustling for deals and keeping precise tabs on all aspects of her finances,” but says the “cheapo act is starting to wear thin on Joe.” The outlet’s supposed source adds, “She’s always looking for ways to save money. Sofia just keeps reminding Joe that he didn’t grow up poor like she did… and accuses him of wasting money!”

And this is where Gossip Cop accuses the National Enquirer of wasting paper on nonsense. One only needs to look back at Vergara’s extravagant wedding last November to see she’s anything but cheap. Regardless of how she chooses to spend her money, though, Gossip Cop is exclusively assured that Vergara and Manganiello are not having any financial issues.

Of course, this is the same tabloid that claimed Vergara was asking the Pope to officiate her wedding, so nonsense is clearly the National Enquirer’s specialty.
