“Of course the fact that Sofía is not sober had an impact on their marriage,” a source told Daily Mail Tuesday.
“He was warned about this when he started dating her and again before marrying her.”
The insider added that the “Magic Mike XXL” star “did not think” he was going to “change” Vergara in any way – but also “didn’t think about the implications” her drinking habits could have on their marriage.
However, a second source told the outlet that Vergara “could not have been more supportive” of her estranged husband’s sobriety over the years.
Manganiello has been sober since the early 2000s and has been vocal about his former issues with alcohol abuse.
In a 2019 interview with Men’s Health, the “Spider-Man” actor explained that he was struggling with alcohol back in the early days of when his career was taking off.
“There was a point where I really thought I was broken beyond the point of being able to be fixed,” Manganiello said at the time.
