Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello were not having it when rumors spread of infidelity and divorce.

After a magazine published that the marriage between the Modern Family actress and her husband has ended because of an alleged affair, the couple took to social media to shut down the rumors and slam the editor.

“The editor of this magazine is an idiot,” she wrote on Instagram with a laughing emoji. “If he is going to have my ring removed to created a “fake” “news” he should have made sure that he removed from social media all the other pictures of that award night in Rome where Im wearing it. By the way…thats my friend the producer of the movie Bent that I was shooting in Rome and who came to spend Easter at my home the week later.”

Manganiello even had his say in it, advising his followers to not buy the magazine. “Big surprise everyone but Star created a fake story and then photo shopped my wife’s engagement ring off of her finger in order to sell magazines. They are run by malicious trash. Do the world a favor and don’t buy their garbage,” he captioned his post.

According to an AMI spokesperson, Vergara incorrectly claimed the “that Star removed her wedding ring from a photograph on its cover that was taken during “that award night in Rome.” Instead, “the photograph in which Ms. Vergara is pictured without her wedding ring was taken in Los Angeles on April 15, after she returned from Rome, and appears on page 34 of the magazine,” said the insider.

The pair tied the knot and hosted a lavish wedding celebration in Florida in late November 2015. At the star-studded event, the Magic Mike star serenaded his bride and guests danced to a live performance by Pitbull.
