The battle between Sofia Vergara and her ex Nick Loeb over their frozen embryos has been going on so long that their embryos are probably covered in two-inches of freezer burn at this point. I honestly have no idea how freezing embryos works, and that’s “probably” not what happens. All I really know is that it sounds like Sofia might have found a way to finally end their fight.
The last we heard, Nick’s lawyers were trying to get the two female frozen embryos moved from California to Louisiana, because he thought he had a better chance of getting embryo custody there. There’s one major thing stopping him. ART Reproductive Center, who has the embryos, need the sign-off from both Nick and Sofia before releasing them. That’s the angle Sofia played yesterday.
TMZ says that Sofia has filed legal documents asking a court to block Nick from trying to take control of their embryos. According to the documents, Sofia alleges that Nick is attempting to bring the embryos to term without her consent, and that’s something he cannot legally do. Back when the embryos were made, Nick signed a pretty clear contract agreeing that he can’t do anything with them unless Sofia agrees. Sofia is never going to agree.
Sofia wants the court to stop Nick before he gets any more dumb ideas. Sofia claims that Nick voluntarily dismissed his case against Sofia back in December and she’s side-eyeing his motives for doing that. According to her documents, she says there’s a good chance he’ll just re-file again and keep this circus going. But again, the contract he signs states that he can’t do anything without Sofia’s go-ahead, so any re-filing would be a waste of time.
In addition to blocking Nick from filing more lawsuits, Sofia is also asking for money from him for her legal troubles. Sofia, girl, do you really want money from Nick Loeb? He’s capital-C crazy! Nothing good can come from accepting money from him. The second the transfer clears, he’s going to run to his lawyers and yell “See? SEE? Her bank account has grown larger with help from my many dollars. That’s clearly a metaphor for pregnancy! She obviously still wants children with me. Hey, where are you going?”
