Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde released a joint statement to slam their children’s former nanny for making “false and scurrilous accusations” against them in an interview with the Daily Mail.
“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 — who share son Otis, 8, and daughter Daisy, 6 — told Page Six on Monday.
“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.”
This statement came out almost immediately after the couple's former Nanny put out a video online via The Daily Mail. It was taken down, but not before the stories started spreading far and wide (she also included tons of texts, all on the OG Daily Mail article.) Here's what she's saying:
Their statement comes just hours after the Daily Mail published an article where their nanny made a series of bombshell accusations — claiming that Sudekis discovered Wilde had hooked up with Harry Styles at Palm Springs after finding emails between the pair on her old Apple watch.
The woman, who spoke anonymously to the Daily Mail, also alleged the “Ted Lasso” star, 47, was so distraught after finding out about Wilde’s affair with Styles that he threw himself in front of her car to stop her from going to see the former boy band heartthrob.
She also claimed that Sudekis fired her on Feb. 1, 2021, when he was in a drunken rage.
If I hear that my nanny told everyone I did all these things, I am 4,000% denying it. That's crazy girl behavior! The public can't know about all that!! Does it mean it didn't happen? No way.
She told the Daily Mail, “On the Monday morning [of] Nov. 9, when I came back from a weekend off, [Jason] was crying a lot, crying and crying. I didn’t know what had happened at all.
“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!’”
I know this is sad and weird but I'm also laughing about how this plays out like a telenovela. Point to Jason and Olivia for saying this is a lie, it certainly sounds EXTREMELY dramatic.
The nanny — who worked with them for more than three years — further alleged that Sudeikis swiftly banned staffers from listening to any of Styles’ music in his house after the revelation.
The nanny claimed that Sudeikis was completely blindsided when Wilde, 38, broke things off — despite the actress and director’s constant refrain that their separation was amicable.
Here's an excerpt from another article published earlier today, with more claims. One of them being this big "throw myself on the ground" moment, and Olivia's "special dressing":
Jason Sudeikis was so distraught by his breakup with Olivia Wilde that he allegedly threw himself in front of her car to prevent her from leaving, his and the “Don’t Worry Darling” director’s former nanny claims in a shocking new interview.
The nanny, who claims she was fired though a source tells Page Six she resigned, says the “Ted Lasso” actor became distressed when Wilde tried to leave to see now-boyfriend Harry Styles with a salad and her “special dressing.”
He's banning Harry Styles in his house!! He would rather DIE than have Harry Styles put that mother fucking dressing on his salad!!!
It appears the “special salad dressing” Wilde made for Sudeikis and their kids, Otis, 8, and Daisy, 5, was the straw that broke the camel’s back for the “SNL” alum.
“Out of everything, he was like, ‘She made her special salad dressing and took it to him,'” she recalled.
I know everyone says this is all fake. But really, is it? Like I said, this sounds dramatic, but…not really. I've seen people act worse. Heartbreak can be a fickle thing, and when your heart is broken while your now ex wife is getting her own special dressing licked off her tits by Harry Styles, sometimes you're due for a breakdown.
