They haven’t even walked down the aisle yet after getting engaged last year in July. But it seems that there is already trouble in paradise for Modern Family star Sofia Vergara and her fiance Nick Loeb. Following a heated New Year’s Eve fight which ended with the actress falling over and exposing her breast, the couple are now reportedly seeking couple’s counselling. Despite kissing and making up after the fall-out, a friend of the actress told Star magazine that the 40-year-old star thought it best that they iron out their problems before tying the knot.
‘She decided they needed professional help before she would walk down the aisle,’ a source told Star magazine. ‘They had their first session over the phone – and so far, so good!’ During the New Year’s Eve fracas, Sofia was partying with Loeb and friends, when he was allegedly thrown out of Miami Beach club Story after they had a ‘heated argument.’ According to the New York Post, things were already awkward because Loeb was jealous that the pair’s evening was being hosted by the club’s owner Chris Paciello, who Sofia dated in the 1990s.
The publication reported that the situation became heated when Loeb found himself in a struggle with a nearby table, after Sofia apparently had her picture taken with a stranger. Page Six reported: ‘Nick seemed tense around Chris, who was hosting them in the VIP section, even though he and Sofia are just friends. In the early hours, Nick and Sofia were arguing before he got into a dispute with somebody at a neighbouring table. Some pushing and shoving started.
‘Sofia stepped in to try to calm the situation, but somehow she ended up getting pushed and shoved also. Her strapless dress was torn or pulled down in the melee, exposing her cleavage in front of other people and her son Manolo who was so offended he left the club. It was crazy.’ However, the newspaper alleged that despite the argument, Sofia forgave Loeb and the pair returned home together following the altercation. Mother-of-one Sofia and her businessman fiancé became engaged in July but have yet to set a date yet for the big day.
And their New Year’s Eve fight hasn’t been the only bump in the road for the pair. Last year, the National Enquirer published a story claiming that the wealthy businessman was a ‘sex addict who indulged in multiple-partner cocaine-fuelled orgies’. Loeb strenuously denied the claims – but the Enquirer later reported that he texted a Miami-based woman, demanding: ‘Why are you doing this to me? This is very serious… You need to call me.’ The publication also claimed he contacted a prostitute – who is a non U.S. citizen – and threatened her with deportation and the loss of her children. – Dailymail
