Sofia Vergara's Lawyer Responds To 'Unnecessary' Lawsuit Reportedly Filed On Behalf Of The Actress' Frozen Embryos
What a mess.
According to a report yesterday, a new right-to-live lawsuit had been filed in Louisiana on behalf of the female fertilized eggs — reportedly referred to as "Isabella" and "Emma" — which asks the court to grant Loeb full custody so that he can have them implanted in a surrogate and they could receive a trust fund set up for them after birth.
This all comes after a California judge's request for Loeb to submit the names of two of his ex-girlfriends who underwent abortions around 20 years ago.
Still with us?
Well, you don't hear this one every day.
The custody battle took a bizarre turn on Tuesday when a new lawsuit was filed in a Louisiana court against the Modern Family star on behalf of the fertilized eggs — referred to in the legal docs as "Emma" and "Isabella."
According to Page Six, the suit argues the female embryos have the right to live so they can receive a trust that has been set up for them in Louisiana by the plaintiff and "trustee" James Carbonnet.
The trust reportedly promises to pay for things like the embryos' future health care and education. Hm.
The suit — which argues the exes' former agreement never specified what would happen in the event of a breakup — asks for the embryos to be put in Loeb's full custody so that they can be implanted in a surrogate, and eventually see the money from the reported trust.
Obviously, this unique case has the potential to set a huge precedent for embryo rights.
We'll certainly keep you updated as this complicated battle continues.

Sofia Vergara's embryo battle continues…
As we told you yesterday, a California judge ruled her former fiancé Nick Loeb must submit the names of two of his ex-girlfriends who underwent abortions around 20 years ago.
A little background, the 41-year-old — whose pro-life stance is the basis of his suit — is looking to implant two frozen embryos he created with the Modern Family actress when they were together, in order to realize his dream of becoming a father. Vergara and Loeb wrote an agreement that neither party would be able to take any action regarding the embryos without the other's consent — which is what Loeb is trying to get around.

Major turn in Sofia Vergara's frozen embryo drama.
As you know, the 44-year-old is currently in a bitter legal war with ex-fiancé Nick Loeb over the rights to two frozen embryos that were created when the pair were an item.
The Modern Family star wants them destroyed, while the businessman wants to find a surrogate to follow through with the original plan of becoming a father.
At least, those were the rumors Jules had to put to rest when she stopped by Ellen on Wednesday!
Speaking to the host, the Modern Family star addressed the recent speculation that she's been acting "icy" to her sitcom costar over jealousy of the Colombian bombshell's fame!
But since the two actresses are bestiez IRL, Vergara simply told Bowen to wear her blouse to show the two were on good terms — so, Julie did just that!
Sure, that's a lot of work to disprove a beef we weren't even privy to in the first place… Or is that just what they want us to think?!
