It's war between Sofia Vergara and her ex-fiance Nick Loeb.

The Blast website is reporting that the Modern Family star has now hired a private investigator never-ending battle over embryos.

Loeb filed a lawsuit this year in Louisiana in connection with the case.

Vergara countered that the case has no connection to Louisiana and should be booted-out.

Loeb has claimed he filed the suit in Louisiana because he recently moved there and has demanded the case stay put.

Vergara thinks Loeb is merely pretending to live in Lousiana, saying in court documents, "There is, however, no reason to believe that Loeb lives in Louisiana, and to the contrary, there is significant reason to believe that Loeb still lives in New York."

The PI she hired filed a declaration stating he was brought on to determine if the address Loeb claims to live at is occupied.

He says that while investigating, he learned that Loeb is not the owner of the property and the address Loeb provided when registering to vote was in Mount Kisco, New York.

Vergara's investigator claims he visited the Louisiana property three times in April and each time he did not see anyone.

He says, "The small house on the Property was dark, no vehicles were on the property, and the property appears to be unoccupied."

In addition he stares that he even spoke to neighbors, who told him no one has been to the home for months.

Loeb, 42, and Vergara, 45, dated for several years before they split in 2014.

They had two frozen embryos at the time and the terms of their arrangement required consent from both of them before they could be brought to term.

Loeb argues in the documents that the debate over the embryos being either product or people "only one other time in our United States history from which any legal precedent may be reviewed – the pre- Civil War era."

He added: "Under these simple definitions, a human embryo, if believed to be a human being and alive, (which is our contention) would be considered a slave and the parents would be the owners of the slave, particularly in states where they are considered property."

The determination is vital as in Louisiana, embryos are considered "biological human beings" — as opposed to California, which views them as "product and not human beings."

The case between the feuding pair is ongoing.
