Hollywood actress Sofia Vergara has been ordered by a judge to pay her ex Nicholas Loeb $76,433 in attorney's fees and $2,959.26 in costs amid their legal battle over frozen embryos.
While they were together, the pair agreed that Vergara would freeze embryos but they both filed a document stating that if they split - the embryos would be destroyed.
The couple split in 2014.
"The Court finds that there is no alternative method of calculating a fee award that would yield a more accurate or just result, and that a further reduction would be insufficient to compensate Defendant for the attorney's fees and costs incurred in pursuing the anti-SLAPP motion," the documents stated, which are linked to a "malicious prosecution claim."
According to E! News, Loeb filed a motion for attorney's fees in June 2019 and asked to obtain $117,590.87 in attorney fees and $2,958.26 in costs. As you can see, he was awarded most of the coins he was seeking.
