Joe Manganiello filed for divorce from Sofía Vergara on Wednesday, just two days after the couple announced their separation.

He cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split, TMZ reported.

The court documents, per the outlet, confirmed that the exes had a prenuptial agreement. They will each keep their own assets accumulated during the union.

Page Six broke the news on July 17 that Vergara, 51, and Manganiello, 46, had called it quits after seven years of marriage.

The actors said in an exclusive joint statement to us at the time, “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.”

An insider added of the reason for the split, “Sofía and Joe have been growing apart for a while now and are taking some distance from each other to contemplate their future.”

A source previously told Page Six the couple were separating because they had “grown apart.”

Rumors then began to circulate about what else had torn the once madly in love “Modern Family” alum and “Magic Mike” star apart.

A source previously claimed to the Daily Mail that Manganiello’s decision to get sober had impacted his marriage since Vergara still indulged in booze at social occasions.

However, a separate insider insisted at the time that the “America’s Got Talent” judge “could not have been more supportive” of her estranged husband’s sobriety.

Leading up to the separation announcement, there were several signs that there was trouble in paradise.

In August 2022, Vergara attended her former co-star Sarah Hyland’s wedding to “Bachelorette” alum Wells Adams without Manganiello as her date.

The “Hot Pursuit” star and the “True Blood” alum also placed their Italian-style Beverly Hills, Calif., villa on the market that same year.

They then briefly stopped selling it before re-listing it with a reduced price tag in May.

Vergara also seemed to be spending a lot more time without Manganiello in recent months, including going on a girls’ trip to Italy, where she posted sizzling shots of herself in a skimpy swimsuit.

The “Spider-Man” actor also wished the Colombian beauty a happy birthday in July with a social media post that many perceived to be cold and suspicious.

“Am I the only one who doesn’t like the way it sounds? ‘ Sofia’…. not even ‘ My love, My beloved wife’ …. 🤦‍♀️,” commented one fan at the time.

Another added, “What a cold greeting 🥶, not a drop of love expressed Joe Manganiello.”
