Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis have 'NOT spoken' after custody battle turned ugly
SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA: Olivia Wilde, 38, and Jason Sudeikis, 46, are "not speaking" to each other because she is "upset" about how nasty their custody struggle has grown since their secret breakup following their engagement.
A source revealed to RadarOnline, "She and Jason don't speak to each other, so they have help communicating about the custody schedule." However, Wilde "wants to focus on what's best for the kids" -- Daisy, 5, and Otis, 8.
Previously, Wilde achieved a little triumph when the judge denied the 'Ted Lasso' star's plea to have the custody hearing in New York, where the family of four resided prior to the divorce. The judge had declared that California would continue to be the venue for the litigation.
Wilde claimed in recent court documents that Sudeikis' serving of her papers while she was on stage at CinemaCon in front of an audience "embarrass(ed) me professionally." She wrote in the filing, "Since Jason has made it clear that we will not be able to work this out for our children's sake outside of the court system, I filed a petition for custody in Los Angeles."
In response, Sudeikis asserted that he had never intended for his ex-wife to be served at the public event. Following the failure of the initial plan to serve her at the hotel, he reportedly gave the order for the exchange to proceed to Heathrow Airport. He acknowledged his remorse for the circumstance in his reply.
"I understand that the process server had only done her job; however, I deeply regret what happened," Sudeikis stated. "Olivia's talk was an important event for Olivia, both professionally and personally, and I am very, very sorry that the incident marred her special moment."
At the end of 2020, Wilde and Sudeikis officially confirmed their breakup, admitting they had quietly called off their engagement at the beginning of the year but had kept it a secret for months. They had first interacted in 2013 while Sudeikis was a cast member of Saturday Night Live and in November 2020, after seven years of engagement, the pair decided to call it quits.
The first woman Sudeikis has been associated to after splitting from Wilde is Keeley Hazell, who plays Bex in a couple episodes of his hit comedy drama 'Ted Lasso'. Following several speculations about their breakup, it has become unclear whether the couple, who had been dating for a little more than a year, has broken up or is still together.
Wilde appears to be succeeding in her love life as she has since moved on with singer Harry Styles, 28. The two met for the first time while filming 'Don't Worry, Darling' in September 2020. They made their first public appearance as a couple when they attended a wedding together in January 2021. More than a year into their relationship, Styles and Wilde are still going strong.
