Sofia Vergara: I Do NOT Want To Destroy Embryos Created With Nick Loeb
Sofia Vergara is firing back at Nick Loeb after her ex-fiance filed a lawsuit alleging that the actress intends to destroy the frozen embryos the former couple created before splitting. After Loeb’s legal maneuverings surfaced earlier this week, the “Modern Family” star responded with a statement through her attorney.
As Gossip Cop reported, Loeb is suing Vergara to “ensure that the female embryos” created with his sperm and her eggs back in 2013 are kept safe, because, according to him, the actress “refuses to agree to their preservation.” His lawsuit also alleges that Vergara physically and verbally abused him.
Now she’s disputing Loeb’s allegations. In a statement to People, Vergara’s lawyer declares, “The claims made against Sofia Vergara by Nick Loeb are incredible and hold no merit. Vergara has never wanted to destroy her embryos.”
“Vergara has never suggested that she wished to have the embryos destroyed,” adds her attorney’s statement. “She has always maintained that they be kept frozen, a fact of which Loeb and his counsel have always been aware, despite Loeb’s statements to the contrary.”
The actress’ lawyer continues, “Vergara, who has happily moved on with her life, is content to leave the embryos frozen indefinitely as she has no desire to have children with her ex, which should be understandable given the circumstances.” Vergara and Loeb split in 2014. She’s now engaged to Joe Manganiello. Gossip Cop will have updates.
