Somehow we doubt that Sofia Vergara’s show Modern Family could come up with a plotline this over-the-top. According to Radar Online, her 34-year-old brother has been arrested 30 times within the past 10 years and is now being deported to Colombia!
Sadly, Sofia’s hermano Julio has been battling a drug addiction for quite some time. According to the actress, his problems spiraled out of control after the 1998 murder of their oldest brother, Rafael. And within the past decade, Julioseems to have continued down a very dark path.
“To see somebody dying over 10 years, little by little, that’s the worst punishment,” Vergara recently said. “Now he’s like another person.”
Julio’s addictions apparently ranged from marijuana to cocaine, and beyond. His most recent drug arrest in April prompted authorities to deport him back to his home country of Colombia. Though devastated, Sofia has vowed to keep pushing forward and show support for her brother.
“With so many bad things happening, it creates a tough skin,” she said. “You just have to take a deep breath and keep on going.”
