I don’t want to perpetuate untrue rumors, so I am starting this with the disclaimer that it has not been confirmed, but Page Six of the NY Post is reporting that Sofia Vergara and her beau of two years, Nick Loeb have split. They are saying that the Colombian stunner and New York-based political guy broke up over the weekend which is why Sofia attended the Met Ball on Monday night alone. Is Sofia single and available once again?
The couple met at a Golden Globes party in 2010. Nick Loeb is in politics, with a long family history in the States. You may know that he considered running for the Florida state senate last year and that he is the son of John Loeb Jr., who served President Reagan as ambassador to Denmark. I had never quite understood the two of them as a couple, but then again, you never know, right?
A source told us, “Sofia was confiding in friends at the ball that she and Nick have split. They have been fighting a lot recently and have been on the brink of splitting many times. It is not yet clear if they are over for good, but they are done as a couple for now.” Another source told us that Vergara and Loeb’s relationship stumbled under the pressure of her growing fame and popularity. Her success on “Modern Family,” and as host of “Saturday Night Live” — as well as her obvious sex appeal — has turned her into one of TV’s biggest female stars.
Clearly, and as I started this post saying, this is just rumors on Page Six at the moment. They may not have broken up all, or could just be on a temporary break to work through some things. To be honest though, I wouldn’t be surprised if the rumors are confirmed because they just didn’t seem like a compatible couple to me. Sofia is a Hollywood starlet, a red carpet glam girl, and Nick is not part of that world at all. While there are a lot of very successful Hollywood couples which this kind of pairing, in this case I always got the feeling that Nick wasn’t into it and even maybe resented her success in this world. Sofia was quoted saying at the start of the year, “He loves my career..He likes coming to these events. For him, it’s like a hobby to be part of this Hollywood scene.” Hmm….
Nick was often photographed on the arm of Sofia at various events and if I was to guess what happened here, it is that he didn’t like being her arm candy. Sofia is seriously one of the hottest names in Hollywood right now. We should wait though to hear if this is in fact just a gossipy rumor, in which case, my apologies, but I just wanted to keep you in the loop… do you think it is true?
