Olivia Wilde has been on constant rumor patrol.
The actress-turned-director has been at the center of “Don’t Worry Darling” drama for the past few months, and now she’s addressing the drama and rumors surrounding her breakup from Jason Sudeikis.
The former engaged couple got together in 2013 and had two children, Otis (8) and Daisy (5), together before calling it quits in November 2020.
Olivia Addresses Drama Surrounding Jason Sudeikis Split
At the time of their split, Wilde was working on ‘DWD’ and romance rumors between her and Harry Styles were ramping up.
In January 2021, the couple made their couple debut at Styles’ manager’s wedding. The two were photographed walking hand-in-hand at the wedding.
A few months later, Sudeikis did an interview with GQ and admitted he was completely blindsided by the breakup.
During his July 2021 interview he said, “I’ll have a better understanding of why in a year and an even better one in two, and an even greater one in five, and it’ll go from being, you know, a book of my life to becoming a chapter to a paragraph to a line to a word to a doodle.”
Their Breakup Was Unexpected In Jason’s Eyes
Of course, the small amount of time between their breakup and Wilde’s relationship with Styles sparked INSTANT cheating speculation.
It’s long been rumored that Wilde cheated on Sudeikis with her ‘DWD’ co-star and now boyfriend.
Well, she’s settling the speculation once and for all.
Olivia Breaks Silence On Cheating Rumors, “Complete Horses**t”
Wilde appears on the October cover of Vanity Fair. In the cover issue she opens up about her previous relationship and once again takes a big dump on Sudeikis.
“The complete horses**t idea that I left Jason for Harry is completely inaccurate,” she told the publication. “Our relationship was over long before I met Harry.”
Wilde suggests there had been trouble in their relationship for months leading up to 2020.
“Like any relationship that ends, it doesn’t end overnight. Unfortunately, Jason and I had a very bumpy road, and we officially dissolved the relationship towards the beginning of the pandemic (March 2020),” she said. “We were raising two kids during lockdown, so we co-parented through that time. Once it became clear that cohabitating was no longer beneficial for the children, it became the responsible thing to not, because we could be better parents as friends who live in different houses.”
In an interview with Variety last month, Wilde explained “there was a reason” why she left the relationship with the “Ted Lasso” star.
She reiterated the same sentiment in her VF interview.
In April, Sudeikis had someone serve Wilde with custody papers while she was presenting onstage at CinemaCon.

“So many people were shocked on my behalf,” she said. “Unfortunately, I wasn’t that shocked. There’s a reason that I didn’t stay in that relationship. Unfortunately, that was consistent with my experience of the relationship. So I was probably the least shocked. But I was also deeply saddened by it—and disturbed by it in lots of ways…. “
Sudeikis claims he had no clue she would be served in such a public manner, but Wilde has called and continues to call his BS.
“I know it took an extraordinary amount of energy [for the server] to get in that room. It took a tremendous amount of forethought. And I will tell you, there are so many other ways to do that,” Wilde explained. “I am not someone who lives in hiding. If that experience hadn’t been public, I never would have spoken of it, because I never would want my kids to know that happened. Unfortunately, they will know that happened.”
Wilde’s two young children are among the many reasons why she left Sudeikis.
Upon realizing they would be better parents apart from one another, Wilde had an open and honest conversation with her kids.
“They understand the concept of making decisions to protect yourself and to live an authentic, happy life. They really do. I evolved a lot between when I was 27 and 35,” she admitted. “I found myself as a director. And I think I found myself as an individual. And sometimes when you evolve, you evolve out of relationships that were based on an earlier version of yourself.”
