Sofia Vergara’s ex-fiancé Nick Loeb is seeking full custody of the former couple’s unborn children! The producer filed a lawsuit against the actress in hopes of getting hold of her frozen embryos, which are securely stored in California.
“The embryos are mine,” Loeb, 42, told Breitbart News on Wednesday. “The biggest misconception out there is that I’m trying to steal my ex’s eggs. But, they’re not eggs. They’re embryos. It’s 50 percent me. It’s 50 percent mine.”
Loeb filed the petition with the District Court for the Louisiana parish of Plaquemines, later telling Breitbart: “If the roles were reversed, and she wanted them, and I wanted to destroy them, the entire mainstream media would be up in arms and I would be the evil man.”
According to Loeb’s lawyer, Jalesia “Jasha” McQueen, the embryos – which are called Emma and Isabella in the lawsuit – are considered living beings, not objects, and they are as much his as they are Vergara’s.
“We’re hitting it head on with this lawsuit,” she told the publication. “This is the only case that actually looks at the embryos’ rights.”
After suffering girlfriends' abortions in his 20s, Loeb wants full custody of the embryos to award their father full and sole custody of them.
Stating that Vergara, 45, had no intention of carrying the babies in her own uterus, Loeb claimed he should be able to bring his kids to life, whether or not the actress agrees.
As RadarOnline.om readers know, Sofia Vergara and Nick Loeb ended their relationship in May 2014. When the embryo drama began, the actress publicly stated that she wished to keep the frozen embryos in cryopreservation indefinitely. In his lawsuit, Loeb claimed that this action would ultimately lead to the deaths of his unborn children. The first lawsuit was thrown out last August.
