What doomed Sofia Vergara's romance with moneybags businessman Nick Loeb? Opinions vary.
"It was never a good match," a source tells People. "She is fiery and free-spirited and wants to enjoy life to the fullest by traveling and going to parties and events. He's very concerned with his businesses, political aspirations and ultimately settling down."
With the "Modern Family" knockout's career soaring as her 40th birthday approaches, she supposedly had little interest in revisiting the married-with-children route Loeb was keen on (she has a 19-year-old son from her long-ago first union).
Loeb was "very persistent almost to the point of annoying" about the baby issue, snipes another source, adding that he could also be "overbearing" and "smothering."
Counters Camp Loeb to the New York Daily News, "Nick has put a lot into the relationship, and he's put up with a lot. Thankfully, he's not a needy guy."
But the two-year-plus romance, which weathered Loeb's serious car accident in 2010 and his halted Senate bid, was apparently always volatile.
"They fought because Nick had assumed too many things and Sofia was not ready for any commitment –- love or political," a spy explains to People. "[Sofia] is happy with her life the way it is. If she ever did change her mind, it would be because he wanted all of this."
