Vergara and Loeb called it quits last May, after a nearly two-year engagement. However, Loeb has now filed a lawsuit, obtained by E! News, claiming he wants to prevent the destruction of two embryos he made with Vergara. The couple allegedly underwent multiple rounds of unsuccessful IVF in 2013, but broke up before the two remaining embryos could be implanted in a surrogate.
"No [plaintiff] seeks to ensure that the female embryos are not destroyed, but [defendant] refuses to agree to the preservation under all circumstances," the suit reads.
However, Vergara's attorney Fred Silberberg released a statement to E! calling Loeb's filing "uncredible."
"Vergara has never wanted to destroy her embryos," Silberberg said. "Attached are consent forms that both Vergara and Loeb signed in November 2013. The highlighted paragraph clearly states that no unilateral action can be taken with regard to the embryos unless both parties consent. Vergara has never suggested that she wished to have the embryos destroyed. She has always maintained that they be kept frozen, a fact of which Loeb and his counsel have always been aware, despite Loeb's statements to the contrary.
"Vergara, who has happily moved on with her life, is content to leave the embryos frozen indefinitely as she has no desire to have children with her ex, which should be understandable given the circumstances."
