Jason Sudeikis lay 'under the car' to stop Olivia Wilde from seeing Harry Styles, claims ex-nanny
Update: Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis' private life is once again splashed all over social media. This time it was a former nanny who spoke to Daily Mail claiming to dish about the details surrounding the pair's split and the beginnings of Wilde's relationship with Harry Styles. In her claims she alleged that Sudeikis was blindsided and "brokenhearted" by Wilde's new relationship.
Now, in a statement to People, Wilde and Sudeikis have refuted the claims from their former nanny, calling the accusations "false and scurrilous" in a joint statement. "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," the former couple said. "Her now 18 month long campaign of harassing us, as well as loved ones, close friends and colleagues, has reached its unfortunate apex."
"We will continue to focus on raising and protecting our children with the sincere hope that she will now choose to leave our family alone," they shared in the statmement.
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Former nanny to Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis’ kids have made a sensational claim how the 'In Time' actress dumped her fiance for Harry Styles. She alleges that the separation was far from mutual, and the 'Saturday Night Live' cast member was totally devastated to know she was leaving him. According to Wilde, her relationship with Sudeikis ended in early 2020, however, the nanny who worked for three years for the couple told Daily Mail, they split 10 months later, weeks after she began filming with Styles on ‘Don’t Worry Darling’.
The nanny revealed that Sudeikis got to know about Wilde and Styles' affair after he read text messages on the 'Life Itself' actress' Apple watch, which she had left behind. Soon after the nanny was forbidden to play Styles' music around their children. During the interview, the former nanny shared how Sudeikis was in immense pain, and "crying, crying" to her about Olivia "leaving" him, as per Daily Mail.
"After I'd got the kids ready, Jason came upstairs and was having some coffee. He was crying and a mess, saying, 'She left us. She left us!'", the insider revealed. She further said, “He was just out of control crying. I didn't know what to say. He was just crying and crying and saying he was going to get her back and he loved her. He was so brokenhearted – I felt for him.”
The comedian was unable to process the new reality and told the nanny, “She put the move on him [Harry]. She kissed him at one of the dinners they had for the cast in Palm Springs. She did that.” He started drinking heavily and ranted, "She's left us" and "she's f***ing someone else.” The nanny recalls on one occasion Sudeikis "lashed out and chased after Olivia after she had prepared a salad for Styles with ‘special dressing’ in their kitchen." The nanny further claimed, “He burst out at Wilde before lying under the car to stop her from leaving,” according to the report.
As per the nanny, during the altercation, Wilde told him, “I'm scared of you, Jason, I'm scared of you." To which he said: "If you're scared of me, why are you leaving your kids with me?” The former couple had started dating back in 2011 and got engaged two years later. They share two children, a son, Otis and a daughter, Daisy.
In an extraordinary claim, the nanny said everything was going great between the two before, and Wilde even had discussed with staff her plans to marry him and make their daughter Daisy a flower girl. However, it all came down after she met Harry Styles and fell for the singer. She eventually moved into a nearby $1,650-a-night Paramour Estate Hotel in LA in 2020, initially citing the Covid-19 outbreak.
