Anyone following the whole Jason Sudeikis/Olivia Wilde breakup with Harry Styles playing the ingenue part as the Other Man?
For months it’s been speculated that Wilde cheated on Sudeikis, the Ted Lasso and SNL star. But yesterday, their former nanny came forward to the tabloid the Daily Mail with the D-Day details, undercutting the story that Wilde took up with Styles after she broke it off with Sudeikis.
Wilde met Styles (or cast him, depending on what source you read) in her flop film Don’t Worry Darling, which she directed.
It takes a while for Don’t Worry Darling to reveal itself as abysmal, because it spends such a grueling amount of time being merely pedestrian. — Scott Tobias.
The lead actress in the film, Florence Pugh, reportedly had a falling out with Wilde and mysteriously wouldn’t promote the film because Wilde was two-timing Sudeikis and pressing the film crew into her conspiracy. Which, if true, Chump Nation salutes your integrity, Florence!
Gossip site Page Six reports:
“I can tell you for a fact that Flo seeing Olivia and Harry all over each other on set did not go down well as Olivia was still with Jason when she first hooked up with Harry,” one insider told Page Six, referring to Wilde’s ex, “Ted Lasso” star Jason Sudeikis.
The former couple — who got engaged in 2012 and share kids Otis, 8, and Daisy, 5 — announced the end of their seven-year-romance in November 2020.
At the time, sources cited Wilde’s relationship with Styles as the main reason for the split, with one insider telling Page Six that the affair with Styles, now 28, had been ongoing for a month, leaving “Saturday Night Live” vet Sudeikis distraught.
The other clue that the break-up wasn’t all conscious uncoupling was the interview Sudeikis gave to GQ magazine in July 2021, where he intimated that there was some overlap between his character Ted Lasso (who suffers a terrible heartbreak) and his own life.
He had the same pandemic year we all had, and in the middle of that, he had Ted Lasso turn into a massive, unexpected hit, and in the middle of that, his split from his partner and the mother of his two children, Olivia Wilde, became public in a way that from a great distance seemed not entirely dissimilar to something that happens to the character he plays on the show that everyone was suddenly watching. “Personal stuff, professional stuff, I mean, it’s all…that Venn diagram for me is very”—here he held up two hands to form one circle—“you know?”
Ted Lasso star Jason Sudeikis was so devastated after learning his live-in fiancée Olivia Wilde had taken up with Harry Styles, he flung himself under her car in a desperate bid to prevent her from leaving to visit the British superstar, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal.
And despite Wilde’s insistence that her split from Sudeikis was ‘initially friendly,’ in fact it left the blindsided Sudeikis distraught and drinking heavily alone at home and ranting to the couple’s nanny: ‘She’s f***ing someone else.’
The nanny who was caught in the middle of the warring pair, has now spoken out in a blockbuster interview with DailyMail.com, detailing how Sudeikis was left heartbroken, Wilde besotted with her new man, and their two young children, Otis, eight, and Daisy, six, caught in a legal tug of war between them.
My heart goes out to Jason Sudeikis. No one wants to be judged for how they react on D-Day. The poor guy apparently learned he was a chump via an Apple watch Wilde left behind and read the messages.
Anyone of these details could be lifted from this blog. Especially the ol’ cheater chestnut that they met their affair partner after they broke up with the chump.
Wilde began spending more time away from home citing work at the start of November and eventually dumped Sudeikis on November 8.
Sudeikis later uncovered the full details of her relationship with Styles by reading messages on an Apple watch Wilde had left behind and banned the nanny from playing Styles’ music near their children.
The stunned actor was distraught following Wilde’s abrupt departure and was left drunkenly ranting ‘she’s left us’ and ‘she’s f***ing someone else’.
Sudeikis told nanny ‘she put the move on him [Harry]. She kissed him at one of the dinners they had for the cast in Palm Springs. She did that.’
Sudeikis became infuriated after seeing Wilde prepare a salad for Styles with her ‘special dressing’ in the family kitchen, leaving him ranting furiously at her and filming the encounter, before he tried to prevent her leaving by lying under the car.
During the altercation Wilde told him: ‘I’m scared of you, Jason, I’m scared of you’. And he said: ‘If you’re scared of me, why are you leaving your kids with me’?’
They’re not original, Jason.
Despite all the text message evidence, Wilde and Sudeikis claim their former nanny is making it up. People reports:
“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 said.
Hey Olivia, it’s incredibly upsetting to learn you would cheat with a Schmoopie who dresses like the love child of Ziggy Stardust and a checkered tablecloth.

There’s still a lot of stigma out there about being chumped, especially for men. And probably especially for men in Hollywood, so I understand why Sudeikis might try to do the united front thing with his ex, for the children. But I really wish he took a note from the Florence Pugh playbook and said nothing at all, and just let Olivia Wilde twist in the wind.
