Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde have issued a joint statement to address allegations made by their ex-nanny about their relationship’s rocky end.
The Daily Mail published an interview with Wilde’s former employee on Oct. 17. She chose not to reveal her name. According to the report, the former nanny claimed that Wilde, 38, broke off her seven-year marriage with Sudeikis (47), after Wilde started filming “Don’t Worry Darling”. The pair also had numerous heated arguments.
Wilde started a relationship while directing the film. It opened in theaters last month. They have been together since November 2020.
“It is extremely upsetting for us parents to hear that a former nanny to our children would make such false and scurrilous allegations about us publically. In a Monday joint statement, Wilde and Sudeikis stated that her 18-month-long campaign to harass us and our loved ones as well as close friends and colleagues had reached its unfortunate apex.
They concluded that they would continue to protect and raise our children, with the hope that she will choose to stay in our family.
Although Wilde was separated from Sudeikis almost two years ago the fallout of their relationship as well as the co-parenting their children, Daisy (6-year-old) and Otis (8-year-old Otis, has been widely discussed.
Wilde received papers concerning her children in April during a CinemaCon appearance. Wilde was presenting a trailer for “Don’t worry Darling” at CinemaCon when she was served the papers. Variety reports that the manila envelope contained confidential and personal information.
Sources close to Sudeikis said that papers were created to establish jurisdiction over the children of Ms. Wilde, and Mr. Sudeikis at the time.
Sources also claimed that “Ted Lasso’s” star had no prior knowledge of when or where the envelope would be delivered. This would only have been up to the process company involved, and he would never condone her being treated in such an inexcusable manner.
Wilde spoke out about the incident in a Variety interview published August.
She said, “It was my work place.” It would have been considered an attack in any other workplace. It was very upsetting. It shouldn’t have happened.”
