Page Six has confirmed that a judge had ruled that their son's home state is California. Jason Sudeikis' custody complaint against Olivia Wilde has been dismissed.
In October 2021, the Ted Lasso star filed a lawsuit against his ex in a family court in New York City.
While Wilde wants their children Otis, 8, and Daisy, 5, in Los Angeles and potentially London, where her boyfriend, Harry Styles, lives, Sudeikis, 46, wants to live with them in Brooklyn.
After wrapping filming on Ted Lasso's third season of Apple, he is planning to depart the United Kingdom.
According to court papers, his initial complaint has been dismissed as a judge determined that New York was not the children's home.
On May 17, Wilde filed a petition to determine her parental relationship in the Superior Court of California, in LA, according to a filing, and her legal team made a motion to legally dismiss the case on May 18. This means the case will now likely continue in California.
A legal filing, seen by Page Six and signed on August 5 by Danielle M. Rodriguez, a prosecutor-referee, reads: New York was not the home state of the subject children, but California was the home state of the children.
Respondents on July 15, 2022, citing the facts on the record, have granted a motion to de-escalate custody petitions filed on October 21, 2021, as this court has concluded that New York does not have authority to hear custody petitions, as New York is not the country's home state.
While promoting her new film Dont Worry Darling, Wilde was furious after being served legal papers at CinemaCon in Las Vegas in April.
After serving on stage, the actress and director said Sudeikis was aggressively embarrassing and threating her.
According to Wilde, the Sudeikis utilized unfair legal tactics, and Jasons actions were evidently intended to me to be threatened and tamper me off guard.
He may have acted as a discreet service, but instead he chose to take care of myself in the most aggressive manner possible.
The director of Booksmart alleged that this was disrespectful to the children.
The fact that Jason would embarrass me professionally and expose my personal conflict in this manner is extremely contrary to our children's best interests, according to Wilde. Since Jason has clearly stated that we will not be able to work this out for our children outside the court system, I filed a lawsuit for custody in Los Angeles.
According to a source closest to Sudeikis, Page Six said the actor had no prior knowledge of the time or place that the envelope would be delivered, and that he would never condone [Wilde] being served in such a deafening manner.
Since making their debut in 2020, Sudeikis and Wilde had arranged co-parenting their kids and lived between LA, London, and New York.
Wilde alleged in court filings that the duo agreed to send their children to school in LA for the foreseeable year asSudeikis was set to film the final season of Ted Lasso in London.
Jason decided that he will stay in New York for the next year while he is not working, and asked the children to leave the country during the time of his absence. When I did not agreed, Jason filed these papers.
In a court statement, Sudeikis stated that their Brooklyn home was always the family's permanent residence, and that Wilde was attempting to trick him by insisting their kids live in LA.
Sudeikis claims in a filing that it was best for their kids to grow up in Brooklyn for the better. Wilde, who was a director of Styles in January 2021, said that the children have spent most of the last four years in LA or in London, so that they will even attend schools in the two cities.
First, Olivia said that if I did not live full-time in Los Angeles, she would permit me to spend time with Otis and Daisy on weekends and during vacation periods, emphasizing me of my right to parent the children during important period of their lives. According to Sudeikis,
Olivia said that she intended to relocate with their children to London after the school close in 2023, but that she would continue.
Reps for Wilde and Sudeikis have declined to comment.
