Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello’s home has been vandalised by a man who claimed to be the actress’ son.

Police were called in the early hours of Monday (05.07.21) morning to Los Angeles property currently being renovated for the couple to find the newly-completed paint job had been ruined by a guy who was still present at the address.

Sources told TMZ the man admitted to just finishing some major vandalism on the exterior, having used orange paint to write and etch his social media handles onto and into the walls, as well as messages for the ‘Modern Family’ star, who he believes to be his mother and was keen to get in touch with via Instagram.

The unnamed man was arrested but it is currently clear what charges he’s facing.

However, he is believed to have caused more than $100,000 in damages.

Sofia – who has 29-year-old Manolo from a previous relationship – and Joe were not home at the time but the ‘Magic Mike’ actor arrived on the scene later to deal with police.

Last September, the couple’s house was targeted by a trespasser, who claimed he knew Manolo when questioned by security at the exclusive gated community where the property is situated.

Police were called to the scene and the man was arrested and charged with trespassing after he refused to leave quietly.

Meanwhile, Joe recently admitted he is still"coming to grips" with the fact he is married to Sofia and she has so much love for him.

He said: "The biggest adjustment in marriage? Coming to grips with the idea that someone who is not related to you could possibly love you that much. She was it for me. People say things like, 'Marriage and relationships are work'. But it's not. Life is hard. Having somebody to help you deal with it is the greatest thing that ever happened."
