Sofia Vergara was noticeably absent from Oscars 2013 on Sunday, due to illness.
Sofia Vergara was forced to watch the Oscars at home after getting sick
A source told the New York Post, “She came down with a nasty case of flu and had to cancel all plans for Oscar weekend.”
Prior to announcing that illness kept her from the Oscars, Vergara had been seen out with her fiancé, Nick Loeb, in West Hollywood, eating dinner at Boa Steakhouse Friday night.
The 40-year-old Columbian bombshell has made headlines this year due to Loeb.
“They recently had their first meeting with the therapist, who has been on the phone and given positive results. It was Sophia who encouraged Nick to help start this program because she wants to be sure that the two are compatible,” a close friend of Vergara’s told Columbian newspaper last month.
On New Year’s Eve, Vergara and her fiancé were celebrating when Loeb was thrown out of a club in Miami.
The pair were guests in the club's VIP section of Vergara’s ex, Chris Paciello.
“In the early hours, Nick and Sofia were arguing before he got into a dispute with somebody at a neighboring table. Some pushing and shoving started," a source told the New York Post.
"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.”
The source added, "Nick was pulled away from Sofia and those at the next table by security guards, who dragged him out of the VIP section and threw him out of the club. Sofia followed him.”
Despite the argument, Vergara quickly made up with Loeb outside the club, the source said, and they are seemingly still going strong.
