Sofía Vergara was supposedly addicted to her fiery relationship.
The buxom actress announced her split from fiancé Nick Loeb last month, citing heavy workloads as the reason for the relationship ending.
Friends of the former couple say that while Sofía and Nick were very passionate, it often spilled over and became a battle.
“They were both addicted to their fiery relationship, but they have been on the outs for a while now,” an insider revealed to People magazine.
“It’s hard for them to have a normal relationship, much less spend time together. It has been worse since she became a superstar, but they were always on rocky ground.”
Sofía chose to share the news via her account on social media site WhoSay.
It was in the summer of 2012 that the former couple announced their engagement, but numerous reports surfaced claiming the Modern Family star was too busy to marry. However, friends say the union hasn’t ended on bad terms, it simply ran its course.
“There was no bitter feud. Their relationship didn’t make sense anymore, and it was just a realization that they couldn’t make it work,” the insider added.
It was rumored in August 2012 that the pair were finding it hard to merge their busy lives, with Sofía’s successful acting career going from strength-to-strength and Nick busy with his business ventures.
Since the split Sofía’s been in high spirits, posting a series of photos on to her WhoSay account including shots of her tucking into sugary treats in New Orleans with her friend and personal assistant Keegan Killian.
