Olivia Wilde was forced to respond to the shocking moment back in April when Jason Sudeikis, the director of ICYMI, presented her film Dont Worry Darling, when she was interrupted by a not-so-welcome delivery: documents for their children, Otis, 8, and Daisy, 5. At the time, a source said Sudeikis would never condone her being served in such an inappropriate manner. However, on August 10, she responded to Sudeikis publicly presenting custody documents,
In a filing obtained by Us Weekly, Wilde described the move as an outrageous legal tactic. According to Wilde, the actions of Jason were clear to threaten me and catch me off guard. He could have been served me discreetly, but instead he chose to serve me in the most aggressive manner possible.
The fact that Jason would embarrass me professionally and put our personal conflict on public display in this manner is very contrary to our children's best interests. I filed a petition for custody in Los Angeles. Brutal.
So did Sudeikis organize this horrifying moment? A source close to the situation claimed that the Ted Lasso star was in the dark. In April, papers were drafted in order to establish jurisdiction on the children of Mrs. Wilde and Mr. Sudeikis, according to the insider. This would only be up to the process service company involved and he would never condone her being served in such an inappropriate manner.
The couple grew up in November 2020 after being spotted holding hands with Harry Styles at a wedding, and the singer-director duo has apparently grown together ever since. While there is no reason to believe how anyone would react, it's possible that this custody battle is proof.
For the sake of their children (and their future custody arrangement), I hope that Wilde and Sudeikis will be able to do everything off-stage this time.
Don't miss a thing.
