Former fiancé of Sofia Vergara contradicts her testimony at upcoming trial

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. – Sofia Vergara’s former fiancé – who is suing the Beverly Hills reproductive center where the ex-couple had embryos created in anticipation of a family – does not want the ex-‘Modern Family’ star to be sued during the upcoming trial of testifying him against the facility.

In the negligence lawsuit, filed in June 2020 in Los Angeles Superior Court, Nick Loeb says he and Vergara began dating in 2010, became engaged in 2012, and subsequently began discussing plans to start a family. According to his court filings, they agreed to create embryos at ART Reproductive Services LLC through in vitro fertilization.

After the first round of IVF, a surrogate mother was unable to give birth to a child with two embryos, so Loeb and Vergara consulted ART about a second round of treatment in November 2013, which Loeb said produced two more embryos. However, ART did not give Loeb and Vergara a chance to decide what would happen to the embryos if the couple separates or if storage fees are not paid, which Loeb says is a violation of state health and safety laws.

ART attorneys have listed Vergara as a witness in her case, telling Judge Stephen I. Goorvitch during a Sept. 29 hearing that they expect her to say she did not and would not consent to the implantation of the embryos in a surrogate mother that she and Loeb had discussed what would happen to the embryos in the event of a separation.

But in court documents filed Tuesday, Loeb’s attorneys say his former flame’s testimony would be irrelevant.

“In this case, (ART) failed to provide the partners with a form dealing with disposal of the embryos in the event of separation,” Loeb’s attorneys argue in their court filings. “There is no evidence Ms. Vergara can provide that would tend to prove that the defendant provided this form and secured the partners’ signatures.”

Vergara’s testimony would also be “very detrimental” to Loeb, his attorneys argue in their court filings.

“Mrs. Vergara is a very popular and well-known celebrity who has more than 26.8 million followers on Instagram”, more than the states of Louisiana, Kentucky, Oregon, Oklahoma, Connecticut, Utah, Nevada, Iowa, Arkansas, Mississippi, Kansas , New Mexico, Idaho, Nebraska, West Virginia, Hawaii, New Hampshire, Maine, Montana, Rhode Island, Delaware, South Dakota, North Dakota, Alaska and Washington DC together,” Loeb’s attorneys said in their court filings.

Allowing Vergara to testify against Loeb, with whom she was involved in extensive litigation, would show her “anger, hate and dislike” toward him and “stain him in the eyes of the jury with a star power that he will not mitigate.” could. ‘ Loeb’s attorneys continue in their court filings.
On October 18, the judge is scheduled to hold a hearing on pre-trial motions and also set a hearing date.

In one of the separate lawsuits between Vergara and Loeb, the now 50-year-old actress sued Loeb in February 2016, seeking an injunction declaring that all attempts by Loeb, now 47, to deliver the embryos violated they are original contract. Vergara won that case in February 2021.
