Sofia Vergara is still battling her ex-fiance Nick Loeb.
Previously Sofia and Nick were engaged. The former couple had some of her eggs fertilised and frozen for future use. Sofia attended an event also attended by Joe Manganiello. A few months later Sofia and Joe were engaged.
Since Sofia left, Nick has mocked Sofia and her career (suggesting she isn’t marriage material because she values her career). Nick is seeking custody of their fertilised eggs.
Nick is taking legal action. Judges appear to be on Nick’s side or at least agree he has a case. It’s been over a year, and several tries, but Nick’s embryo custody case has not been thrown out of court.
According to sources Sofia is “panicking” and “devastated”. She is reportedly upset that she has tried, and failed, at least twice, to get Nick’s case thrown out.
According to documents exclusively obtained by In Touch magazine, on Oct. 27, a judge rejected the actress’ second motion to dismiss a lawsuit filed by her ex Nick. In Touch first broke the story in April, that Nick is trying to prevent Sofía from destroying two cryopreserved female embryos they created through in vitro fertilization prior to their 2014 split.
“Sofía is panicking. The last thing she wants is for this case to go to court,” a source tells In Touch.
Sofía is busy preparing for her Nov. 22 wedding, which will include 400 guests at The Breakers Palm Beach hotel in Florida, but suddenly she’s consumed with her past, not focusing on her future. The judge in the embryo case left open the possibility that if Nick wins at trial, he won’t need Sofía’s consent to bring the embryos to term.
“Sofía is devastated,” an insider tells In Touch, adding that the Modern Family star is “terrified” of the court battle that is now looming. “But Nick is committed to saving and bringing these embryos to term via surrogate. He’s going to see this thing through until the end.”
“[Sofía]’s just praying that her legal team finds a way to persuade the judge that this can’t go through without her blessing.” [via InTouch Weekly]
