Sofía Vergara has taken to the airwaves to defend herself against her ex’s crazy lawsuit, but surprise! Nick Loeb was on another show at the same time telling his side of things — again.
Vergara took a seat on Good Morning America to discuss the battle over the couple’s frozen embryos, and she is disgusted that Loeb would use her celebrity to try to garner public sympathy for his case.
“I’ve been working very hard for 20 years to get to this point where I am,” she said. “I promote all my movies, all my work, but I don’t like promoting my private life. And I don’t want to allow this person to take more advantage of my career and try to promote himself and get press for this.”
She pointed out that Loeb doesn’t have a leg to stand on because they signed a contract stating that both parties had to consent before any embryos were used.
“Why is the press allowing somebody to invent things and create press for himself?” she asked. “He’s not an actor. He’s not a celebrity. It’s like, why?”
“This shouldn’t be out there for people to give their opinion when there’s nothing to talk about. There’s papers signed… I don’t understand why the media is allowing a person to just try to put me down, and make it like something is happening when nothing is happening.”
At the same time, Loeb appeared on Today and reiterated his outrageous belief that he should be able to use Vergara’s embryos without her consent.
“It has nothing to do with whether it’s her baby or a baby,” he said. “Lives were already created… I wouldn’t toss them aside.”
“I’ve offered to her to waive all financial responsibilities,” he said. “I want these children to have the best lives possible… There’s nothing more that I want to do than bring these children to life.”
Lawyers for each are currently hashing out the case.
