Sofia Vergara wants to end the nasty legal battle between herself and ex-fiance Nick Loeb’s over her frozen embryos.
In documents obtained that the Modern Family star filed on Tuesday, it stated that Vergara is requesting to permanently block her ex-fiancé from filing any future lawsuits in an attempt to reach the embryos they froze when they were together and thinking about doing IVF in 2013.
The pair split in 2014, and later that year, Loeb entered into a lawsuit to gain full custody of the embryos and prevent Vergara from destroying them. In December of that same year, he voluntarily dismissed the case without prejudice, which Vergara believes is only leaving the door open for future lawsuits which is why she is now seeking a court order to put an end to the legal battle entirely.
In the documents filed Tuesday, Vergara stated that she believes Loeb will continue to pursue custody of the embryos in the future and “attempt to obtain a legal decree that will ultimately grant him control.”
She is seeking a “declaratory judgement” ordering that the Art Reproductive Center be “prohibited from releasing the Pre-Embryos for any purpose without explicit mutual written consent” from both Loeb and Vergara,” which follows suit with the contract the former couple signed with the center in 2013.
