Sofia Vergara worried ex Nick Loeb will keep trying to get custody of their frozen embryos

Sofia Vergara is fed up of her battle with ex Nick Loeb over frozen embryos and now wants it to stop.

The Modern Family star, who split from Loeb in 2014, has reportedly filed legal documents to try and permanently stop her ex-fiance from filing any more lawsuits over the embryos that they froze while they were still together and considering IVF to have children in 2013.

E! News reports that Vergara is now after a court order to put their legal battle to bed.

The actress, who is now married to Joe Manganiello, is already mum 24-year-old son with ex-husband Joe Gonzalez.

Their former couple’s battle started in 2014 when Loeb filed a lawsuit demanding full custody of the embryos so that they couldn’t be destroyed.

But Loeb voluntarily dismissed the case without prejudice in December, which Vergara claims could mean that he might file another lawsuit in the future.

On Tuesday, Vergara claimed that she believes that her ex could continue to try and obtain full custody of their frozen embryos and “attempt to obtain a legal decree that will ultimately grant him control” of them.

Now she has asked the courts for a “declaratory judgement” which orders the the Art Reproductive Center be “prohibited from releasing the Pre-Embryos for any purpose without explicit mutual written consent” from both parties. This was in their original documents they signed back in 2013.

Vergara also wants financial compensation from the “incurred damages in an amount significantly greater than the jurisdictional minimum” because of Loeb’s alleged “malicious conduct” for having tried to break that contract.

 

Speaking to E! News, the 44-year-old’s legal representative said that Vergara “never suggested that she wished to have the embryos destroyed,” but that she wanted to “leave the embryos frozen indefinitely as she has no desire to have children with her ex.”
