In her bid to dismiss Nick Loeb's lawsuit against her, the 'Modern Family' actress reportedly hires private investigator to find out whether or not he was actually living in the state.

AceShowbiz - Sofia Vergara is asking a judge to force her ex-fiance Nick Loeb to prove he is a resident of Louisiana in their frozen embryo lawsuit.

The "Modern Family" actress and Loeb froze two embryos during their time together several years ago and, under the terms of their arrangement, both parties have to consent before they could be brought to term.

The couple split in 2014, and Vergara's former fiance has been battling for the rights to bring the embryos to term ever since. He has been blocked twice by the actress, who is now married to actor Joe Manganiello.

Loeb filed a third suit against Vergara in January in Louisiana, where embryos are considered "biological human beings" under state law. He claimed he had relocated there before filing suit, and in April it was reported Sofia hired a private investigator to determine if Loeb was actually living in the state.

The private investigator reportedly discovered the address Loeb listed as his residence in Louisiana was unoccupied, and according to TMZ, Vergara has now filed a new motion to compel Loeb to turn over documentation proving he lives in Plaquemines Parish. The 46-year-old has accused Loeb of failing to co-operate with her lawyer.

Sofia has previously argued the case has no connection to the state and she has asked a judge to dismiss the lawsuit. The case is ongoing.
