After their former nanny made accusations concerning the couple’s tumultuous breakup, Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis issued a joint statement addressing the matter.
A previous employee of the performers, who did not wish to give her identity, spoke to the Daily Mail and the interview was published on October 17. The nanny claimed in her report that Wilde, then 38, and Sudeikis, then 47, broke up after Wilde started filming her movie “Don’t Worry Darling” and had many heated disagreements.
Wilde began dating Harry Styles when he was directing the picture, which was released to theaters last month. They started dating in 2020 November.
On Monday, Wilde and Sudeikis released a joint statement in which they expressed their dismay at the allegations made by their former nanny. “As parents, it is incredibly upsetting to learn that a former nanny of our two young children would choose to make such false and scurrilous accusations about us publicly,” they said.
Together, they came to the following conclusion: “We will continue to focus on raising and safeguarding our children with the honest hope that she will now choose to leave our family alone.”
Although Wilde and Sudeikis split almost two years ago, the aftermath of their romance and the co-parenting of their two children, 8-year-old Otis, and 6-year-old Daisy, have been widely reported.
In April, Wilde was served papers involving their children during an appearance at CinemaCon. The actor and director had just finished presenting the trailer for her upcoming film when she got the papers. According to Variety, the manila envelope included something marked “personal and confidential.”
At the time, sources close to Sudeikis acknowledged via email to NBC News that “documents were written out to establish jurisdiction relating to the children of Ms. Wilde and Mr.
Moreover, according to the sources, the “Ted Lasso” actor “had no previous knowledge of the time or place that the envelope would have been delivered since this would purely be up to the process service firm involved and he would never condone her being served in such an inappropriate manner.”
In an August interview with Variety, Wilde discussed the incident.
She explained, “That was my workplace.” It was very disturbing; it shouldn’t have been allowed to occur in any workplace.
