Sofia Vergara is one of the most famous actresses in all of Hollywood at the moment. She’s on the most famous and most loved sitcom of the moment, Modern Family, and she’s gorgeous. She’s a Cover Girl, she’s a model for other brands, and she’s currently engaged to one of the hottest men in Hollywood. It’s a nice concept to be amazingly beautiful, funny, successful and in love, but that doesn’t mean life is perfect for the star. In fact, she’s in the middle of one of the most disturbing lawsuits around right now with her ex-fiance, Nick Loeb. Loeb is a famous businessman with a successful career, and he’s suing his ex-fiance over the frozen embryos that the two created back in 2013. He wants to keep them and raise the two little girls, but she wants to destroy them. Vergara has denied the fact that she wants to destroy the two little girls that are being frozen at the moment, and Loeb has stated he wants to raise them and he will not ask her for any parental involvement or money. It’s an interesting concept, and it begs the question, who is Nick Loeb?
His Father was a US Ambassador
He’s the son of a former US Ambassador to Denmark, and his second wife. He’s an only child from this particular marriage, but he has a sister from his father’s first marriage.
His Mother is a Murderer
Loeb’s parents divorced when he was only one and he lived with his father his entire life. In the mid-90s, however, his mother decided to kill her third husband and then commit suicide. The act was not an easy one for her son to deal with.
He’s been Married
He was married once before, and his divorce caused him to step down from running for Senate. He’d already lost some smaller elections in South Florida where he was running for smaller offices, so it might have been a good idea.
He’s a College Grad
Loeb is no dummy. In fact, he’s a smart man with a college degree from a prestigious school. He obtained his BA from Tulane University only two years after his mother killed his stepfather and then himself.
He wants Kids
Loeb does not have any children from his previous marriage or relationship, but he does want kids. He and Sofia Vergara created embryos and froze them, and now he wants to have them and raise them as his own.
