Sofia Vergara punched, kicked, berated and bullied Nick Loeb during their nearly four-year relationship, the star's ex-fiancé claims in their legal battle over embryos.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the Modern Family beauty and her former boyfriend have been embroiled in a fierce public battle over two embryos they froze in 2013, as Loeb aims to retrieve the embryos, use a surrogate to deliver them, and raise the children on his own.
In newly released court documents, filed in August 2014 and acquired by RadarOnline.com, Loeb levels shocking claims against the beloved sitcom star, stemming from a November 2013 incident in which he said she "began vigorously berating" him after he questioned her signing of a document that stipulated that the embryos were to be thawed should one of them die.
"Such abuse was unfortunately common in the Parties' relationship, as Vergara was on many occasions physically, emotionally and mentally abusive to Loeb," read the documents. "For example, she physically abused him on four separate occasions: she punched him in the face on two occasions, kicked him, and threw her phone at his head."
Loeb said that the Colombian stunner "routinely bullied him, calling him a 'loser,' 'worthless,' and other degrading names" during their ill-fated relationship.
Loeb said he signed that document in question, "even though he did not agree with it, in order to avoid further abuse."
Despite the allegations, an insider told Radar, "Sofia never got physical with Nick, it just didn't happen... Did they fight? Yes, and a lot, which is why they broke up. But to portray it as Sofia being mentally abusive towards Nick is reckless, and just not true."
