Joe Manganiello Drops Out of Charity Event Due to ‘Health Issues’
What’s up with Joe Manganiello?
Just a few days after dropping out of his role in the upcoming History Channel show Six, the Magic Mike XXL star has pulled out of a charity event on Sunday (Apr. 17, 2016) due to his ongoing health issues. He and his wife, Sofia Vergara, were scheduled to appear as honorary co-chairs at the Stuart House Benefit in West Hollywood, Calif., to raise money for victims of sexual abuse.
A rep at the event told Entertainment Tonight that the actor dropped out due to “health issues.” So what exactly are these issues? No one has confirmed, but fashion designer and longtime friend of the couple, John Varvatos, did say Manganiello is recovering.
“Basically they just couldn’t make it because [Manganiello] is recovering,” Varvatos told ET. “I don’t know a lot about it other than that he’s had a little bit of a health problem. We wish him the best. We thank him for all his support that he’s given us and, most importantly, to get well soon because he’s such a wonderful guy.”
We’re sending the actor our best wishes, too.
