Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis started dating way back in 2011 and they later got engaged. The engagement lasted for seven long years, during which the couple had their son, Otis, in 2014 and daughter, Daisy, in 2016. However, the couple never tied the knot and ended up separating in late 2020.
Soon after, news of Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles beginning their romance on the sets of Don’t Worry Darling came to public attention. Many people speculated whether it was Harry Styles who had caused problems in the nine-year-long relationship. Olivia Wilde herself put an end to these speculations stating that they had problems for a long time.
Is Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles’ Romance to be Blamed?
Olivia Wilde’s romance with Harry Styles was made public in January 2021, just two months after she and Jason Sudeikis called it quits on their relationship. Keeping the timeline in mind, one could see why people speculated that Styles’ was the reason behind the split. Even Wilde and Sudeikis’ nanny had claimed that things were going smooth between the couple, before Styles’ entry. She stated that things were picture perfect on the 2020 Labor Day Weekend.
“Why don’t you just…look at her ring on Labor Day Weekend. We were in Malibu on Labor Day Weekend. This was right before she started seeing Harry. She’s wearing her engagement ring from Jason and laughing as she’s on the beach.”
However, in an interview with Vanity Fair, Wilde herself put a stop to the rumors stating that she and Sudeikis had issues since before Styles’ was even in the picture.
“The complete horsesh*t idea that I left Jason for Harry is completely inaccurate. Our relationship was over long before I met Harry. Like any relationship that ends, it doesn’t end overnight.”
She further stated that she and Sudeikis were on a bumpy road towards the end of their relationship and that the issues stemmed during the pandemic. Even though the ex-couple had a messy breakup, pointing fingers at the pop superstar might be in vain.

Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis’ Custody Battle
While the media circus has made the separation messier than it was needed, it’s a breath of relief that their kids are not a part of the mess. In the middle of the custody battle, both Wilde and Sudeikis have made sure that their kids receive the best parenting and live a normal life.
Even though they’re facing struggles during co-parenting, they are moving forward keeping the best for their children in their mind. The ex-couple also seems to have communication problems, as stated by an insider.
“They have minimal communication and it is done digitally or through assistants. The only thing discussed is the kids and their schedules. They are trying to put the kids first and do what’s best for them.”
Things could have taken a plunge when Wilde was served custody papers during CinemaCon, even though Sudeikis called it an honest mistake and that the papers were meant to be delivered in private. However, the way that they didn’t create a huge scene out of the ordeal goes on to say that they really do have their kids’ best interests at heart.
