Olivia Wilde responds to the rumors that she left Jason Sudeikis for Harry Styles
Olivia Wilde, the House (2007-2012) actress has been making quite the headlines for the controversial love triangle of her, Harry Styles and Jason Sudeikis. The actress was engaged to Sudeikis in late November and the relationship bore two children, Otis and Daisy until it met its inevitable end at the start of the 2020 pandemic.
The Ted Lasso actor however was very distraught as a result of the separation and he didn’t take it well when the rumors surfaced of her former wife dating again. The actress collaborated with Harry Styles in the 2022 psychological thriller Don’t Worry Darling during which the both sparked a connection.
While Wilde offered the statement that she and Sudeikis were long done before she met Styles, their nanny’s words proved contrary to the director’s claims.
“She wanted Harry to think things were over for a long time, by saying things had been horrible for a long time,” the nanny said. “That’s not true.”
However, in a profile with Vanity Fair, Wilde slammed the rumors that her relationship with the One Direction star overlapped with her relationship with the Horrible Bosses actor.
“The complete horseshit 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. Unfortunately, Jason and I had a very bumpy road, and we officially dissolved the relationship towards the beginning of the pandemic.”
Harry Styles allegedly was pressured to break up with Wilde by his team, because of the Jason Sudeikis scandal, but he refused to do so.
