Sofia Vergara and Nick Loeb broke up in 2014 — but from recent details about their relationship, Vergara should have dumped his ass long before then.
A letter written by Loeb in 2014 revealed his disapproval of Vergara speaking in her native tongue — and it will send you into a fit of rage.
"What I do not like and what I will not put up with anymore is the Spanish, and no I do not like hanging out with you when you speak in Spanish with others at the table. ... Not only is it rude and disrespectful, it is classless. And for you to then berate, embarrass and humiliate me in front of others when I ask you to stop is not happening anymore."
Did this man forget who he was dating?!
Vergara and Loeb were engaged, so one would imagine at that point in the relationship that Vergara's bilingualism would be a non-issue for Loeb. Instead of embracing a huge part of Vergara's culture, Loeb condemned her for it.
Language is a powerful tool for people to express themselves and their identity; to call someone "classless" for communicating in the way they feel the most comfortable is absurd. But let's be real, we are talking about the same, petty guy, who has tried to force Vergara to let him bring them their two embryos to term against her will...
The letter was filed in court and it's taking the Vergara-Loeb fiasco to new heights.
The former couple created two embryos via in vitro fertilization in 2013, and since then Loeb has been fighting for custody even though Vergara has not given him permission to unfreeze them.
"In my view, keeping them frozen forever is tantamount to killing them," Loeb wrote in an op-ed for The New York Times. The custody battle is so messy that Vergara was actually being sued by the embryos — "Emma" and "Isabella" — in the state of Louisiana. Yes, you read that correctly and yes, that's totally legal in that state.
Vergara shut that down faster than you could blink, and filed a lawsuit to have this case dismissed and stop Loeb from using the embryos.
According to Page Six, an attorney that was repping the embryos (yup, you read that correctly too) submitted the letter written by Loeb to "show that the couple engaged in lengthy discussions about the embryos before their split." Well, it also showed how much of an asshole he was, too.
Vergara — who was born in Colombia — is the highest paid woman in television (where she has proudly showed off both her Spanish and English skills).
If Loeb felt so threatened by Vergara's ability to speak two Languages, maybe he should have taken up a few Rosetta Stone classes en Español. After all, the US is the second-largest Spanish-speaking country in the world.
