A California judge granted movie producer Nick Loeb permission to file for custody of his and actress Sofia Vergara's 2 daughters, who now reside in an ice box somewhere on the west coast.
If you haven't heard, Vergara and Loeb, 39, have been embroiled in a rather nasty public dispute over the custody of 2 female embryos that they created together.
It seems Vergara, 42, was high on Dopamine fumes when she met Loeb and came up with the brilliant idea to commingle her eggs with Loeb's sperm in a laboratory test tube.
2 of the eggs were fertilized and promptly frozen so they couldn't grow into viable fetuses.
At her advanced age, Vergara probably didn't want her eggs to expire (so to speak) before her and Nick got down to having babies.
But the Dopamine has since faded, Vergara has come back to her senses, and now she just wants to move on with her new boo.
But Loeb will have none of that.
Loeb, who was raised since age 1 by his single father, naturally has trouble letting go.
So he anonymously filed for custody of the aforementioned female embryos. But a reporter discovered the unusual court filing; did the math
and paid off the court clerk to uncover the name of the famous plaintiff.
Loeb originally filed the lawsuit in August 2014 to make sure Vergara doesn't destroy the embryos. He can now file for joint custody of the embryos.
"He does believe they are his daughters," Loeb's lawyer Christina Goodrich told ET Online on Tuesday.
But Vergara's lawyer, Fred Silberberg, argued that Loeb just wants attention, and he "is using this lawsuit to continue to attack [Vergara] in the press and continue to have his own visibility in the press."
Silbergberg explained to the court that Loeb and Vergara had an agreement to seek the other's permission before anything was done with the embryos.
Apparently that wasn't enough for Loeb.
This is why I warn you kids to wait until the Dopamine fades before making any life-altering decisions. You think it's love when it's really just the Dopamine.
