Nick Loeb Sues Ex Sofia Vergara Over Frozen Embryos Destruction

The actress' ex files a lawsuit because she refused to preserve their embryos which were produced by In Vitro Fertilization.

AceShowbiz - Sofia Vergara's ex-fiance, Nick Loeb, has filed a lawsuit to prevent the actress from destroying their two frozen female embryos. It is stated in the lawsuit that Loeb wanted to preserve the embryos while Vergara didn't agree to the preservation.

In Touch Weekly reports that in November 2013 the couple had In Vitro Vertilization which produced embryos from Loeb's sperm and Vergara's eggs. They used a surrogate to implant the embryo but they split before the embryo was successfully implanted in her.

The document in which Loeb is referred to as pseudonym John Doe, and Vergara as Jane Doe states, "John seeks to save from destruction two cryopreserved Female Embryos created using John's sperm and Jane's ova for the purposes of attempting to have children. However, before the Female Embryos could be implanted in a surrogate, the Parties ended their relationship."

The document which had been originally filed in August 2014 but was refiled after amendment on April 1, 2015 further declares that "Jane insisted that in such a circumstance, the Female Embryos be thawed with no further action. John did not agree with Jane and refused to initial his agreement regarding that term."

An insider said Loeb's feelings on the preservation of the fertilized eggs were tied to his political beliefs, "He has been a Republican his entire life and has always believed that life begins at conception." The source added, "Nick is very emotionally invested in these female embryos because he's pro-life and believes life begins at conception."

The document claims that Vergara was "physically and mentally abusive." It's written in the document, "She punched him in the face on two occasions, kicked him, and threw her phone at his head. She also routinely bullied him, calling him a 'loser,' 'worthless' and other degrading names." Regarding to this case, "John Doe signed this portion of the Former Directive, even though he did not agree with it, in order to avoid further abuse," the document states.
