Nick Loeb, the fiance of actress Sofia Vergara, was thrown out of a Miami Beach nightclub after getting into a verbal altercation, the New York Daily News said Wednesday.

The incident occurred in the wee hours of Tuesday at Story, a club near the Delano Hotel, where the Colombian beauty and Loeb had earlier hosted a New Year's Eve party.

The trouble started when another guest in the club's VIP section bumped into Vergara, star of the ABC comedy "Modern Family," causing her to spill her drink.

Loeb, according to witnesses, demanded that the man apologize, despite Vergara's wish to let the matter go. The couple began to argue and the club's security guards intervened, hustling Loeb out the back door, the witnesses said.

Hours later, Vergara posted on Twitter a photo of Loeb with her mother, an apparent signal that all was forgiven. EFE
