Nick Loeb, Sofia Vergara’s ex-fiance, allegedly filed a case against the actress to stop her from destroying her embryos. Read on.
The “Modern Family” actress has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Vergara has been battling the disease and was successfully cured. However, Loeb claimed that the actress was unlikely to get pregnant because of her illness. He added that Vergara has frozen two cryopreserved female embryos through the use of her eggs and Loeb’s sperm. This would be used for the In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) which Nick Loeb claimed should be saved as he believed life starts at conception.
The process was done six months before the couple finally decided to end their relationship, reported Yahoo Lifestyle.
Loeb filed a lawsuit against Sofia Vergara on April 1 in a federal court in California and used the pseudonym John Doe. The charges claimed the move was “to ensure that the female embryos are not destroyed, but Jane Doe (referring to Sofia) refuses to agree to their preservation under all circumstances.” This was according to a report from In Touch Weekly.
The report went on saying the former couple had two embryos were also implanted in a surrogate but did not turn out successful.
Meanwhile, an insider tipped that “Nick has always wanted to be a father and will do whatever it takes to save these two remaining female embryos. Nick is very emotionally invested in these female embryos because he’s pro-life and believes life begins at conception.”
Loeb also filed charges against the medical facility where the embryos are being kept. Loeb claimed he and Vergara have never decided what would happen to the stored embryos in case they split, which actually happened.
The documents showing the charges filed against the 42-year-old actress said Vergara “was physically and mentally abusive” to Loeb several instances in their entire relationship.
