We have been closely following the court battle between Modern Family actress Sofia Vergara and her ex-fiancé, Nick Loeb, and so far Vergara has remained tight-lipped on the issue.
This week, however, the 42-year-old star broke her silence during a radio interview on The Howard Stern Show, and she was understandably defiant on the subject.
Opening up on the difficult situation, which has seen Loeb claiming that keeping the embryos frozen is “tantamount to killing them”, Vergara insisted that she is not worried about losing the legal battle.
“There is a contract, he can’t do anything. I didn’t do anything wrong because somebody changes their mind suddenly,” said Vergara, adding that she is letting her legal team handle the situation.
The contract, which the pair signed after creating the embryos during their relationship, states that the embryos can only be brought to term with both parents’ consent; Loeb is now challenging this.
While the story has been getting plenty of headline space, Vergara told Stern that she is not giving the issue a second thought, and hasn’t read Loeb’s New York Times opinion piece about it.
Vergara was very vocal, however, when it came to discussing exactly why a victory for Loeb would be a bad thing, saying: “A child needs a loving relationship, with parents who get along that don’t hate each other…I don’t hate him, but obviously he has a problem with me.”
Loeb and Vergara were in an on-off relationship for four years, getting engaged in 2012. The couple broke up two years later, with Vergara going on to date and get engaged to fellow actor Joe Manganiello.
