Joe Manganiello and fiancee Audra Marie have reportedly broken up. The pair, who became engaged during a trip to Italy in October of 2010, are parting ways according to a pair of insiders.
SheKnows has reached out to a rep for Joe Manganiello for confirmation on the reports of his split.
At the time of his engagement to model-actress Audra Marie the 34-year-old happily gushed to E! News, “I always dreamed of finding someone who is beautiful and sweet, equal parts, and I did. From there she’s just unbelievably understanding and compassionate and patient from all the craziness that comes from this job and lifestyle.”
Reportedly signs of trouble in the relationship began this spring, when the True Blood hunk stopped talking about he and Audra Marie’s upcoming wedding, refusing to set a date. “He [went] completely quiet about discussing wedding details,” a source reveals.
Along with a return to singledom, Joe Manganiello’s future includes baring all for his role in the film Magic Mike, about an all-male strip club. While fans may be shocked to see the man most know as Alcide on True Blood in the full-frontal buff, it won’t be the actor’s first time.
On his boastful list of 25 Things to Know Joe Manganiello shared #23: “I appeared full frontal nude in an off-Broadway play.” (Try not to drool.)
We’re wishing both Joe and Audra Marie the best as they sort their relationship out. Perhaps there’s a lucky lady out there who’ll be able to cheer Joe Manganiello up!
