The Modern Family actress packed up her belongings and shipped herself out of Loeb’s penthouse apartment in Chelsea, New York, and into a hotel on Monday following a series of blow-ups over the weekend, a source close to the Colombian star confirmed to Celebuzz.
“It was her decision to end the relationship and not his,” an insider told us. “One thing is for certain, though: there’s no third party involved.”
What else went down?
Vergara, 39, attended the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute gala earlier this week without Loeb, the tall and handsome scion to Manhattan’s Loeb, Rhoades & Co. banking fortune.
It was there that the actress was overhead confiding in friends that the couple, who dated for two years, had been “arguing a lot, particularly over the past few months.”
Another source told Celebuzz, “In more ways than you could imagine, Sofia and Nick were very different people. He is a very mellow guy. She’s the opposite. Sofia wanted to be wined and dined. Living the life of a Hollywood star, if you like.”
36-year-old Loeb, on the other hand, was content to build his growing business empire.
In addition to wanting to pursue a political career — his father, Ambassador John Loeb, Jr., served President Ronald Reagan as Ambassador to Denmark — Loeb serves as President of Onion Crunch, which markets a crispy sandwich and salad topping, and as Managing Partner of Carbon Solutions America, a small independent consulting firm that helps public and private entities lower their carbon footprint.
Vergara — who has a son Manolo, 20 — hinted to the April issue of InStyle that there was trouble in the relationship, telling the magazine neither she nor Nick were in a rush to walk down the aisle.
“I’ve lived a life full of things I never thought I could achieve,” she said. “It takes effort and sacrifice, but why not risk trying to be better?”
Vergara is expected to return to living full-time is Los Angeles, the source added, where she, Manolo and Loeb would live while on the West Coast.
