Jason Sudeikis wears a top featuring the names of England football players Jadon Sancho, Marcus Rashford and Bukayo Saka as he attends Apple's "Ted Lasso" season two premiere at Pacific Design Center on July 15, 2021 in West Hollywood, California. Olivia Wilde attends the 2020 Vanity Fair Oscar Party hosted by Radhika Jones at Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on February 09, 2020 in Beverly Hills, California.

Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde are putting their children first, despite their messy custody battle.

A source told People that Wilde, 38, “wants to focus on what’s best for the kids.” The couple shares daughter Daisy, 5, and son Otis, 8.

“She and Jason don’t speak to each other, so they have help communicating about the custody schedule,” the insider says. Though the House alum is “upset about the custody drama,” she still “wants the kids to see” Sudeikis, 46, “as much as possible,” adds the source.

One of the bigger troubles for the children is where they will be living, as both Sudeikis and Wilde have differing opinions on where the kids should live — between London, Los Angeles and New York City. “She hopes they can figure out the best living situation for everyone,” the insider says of Wilde.

As we previously reported, a judge ruled their kids’ home state is California and not New York, granting Wilde’s motion to dismiss a custody petition filed by Sudeikis in October 2021. In his petition, the Ted Lasso actor reportedly said he hoped for the duo to parent their kids from New York City, where the family previously lived and where Otis and Daisy were both born.

Sudeikis alleged that Wilde would allow him to spend time with their kids “on weekends and during vacation periods” if he didn’t live in LA full time. He said that this deprives “me of my right to parent the children during important periods of their lives.”


Olivia Wilde Was Served Custody Papers While On Stage At CinemaCon

Olivia Wilde was served with child custody papers from ex-partner Jason Sudeikis in the middle of her presentation at CinemaCon.

Per The Independent, the actress and director was presenting the trailer for her forthcoming drama Don’t Worry Darling (starring boyfriend Harry Styles and Florence Pugh) at the Las Vegas convention on Tuesday (April 26) when she was interrupted by a stranger.

An unidentified woman approached the stage to hand Wilde, 38, a manila envelope. “This is for me?” Wilde asked the woman, before opening the envelope, which was labeled “Personal and Confidential.” While onlookers initially believed the envelope to contain a movie script, it was later reported that the contents were child custody papers from Wilde’s ex of nine years, Sudeikis, 46.

The Ted Lasso star and creator was reportedly unaware that Wilde would be served with the papers at the event, with a source saying that we would “never condone” delivering the legal documents in such an “inappropriate manner.”

“Papers were drawn up to establish jurisdiction relating to the children of Ms. Wilde and Mr. Sudeikis,” the source said. “Mr. Sudeikis had no prior knowledge of the time or place that the envelope would have been delivered as this would solely be up to the process service company involved and he would never condone her being served in such an inappropriate manner.”

Wilde and Sudeikis share two children, Otis, seven, and Daisy, four. In the wake of the incident, organizers of CinemaCon have said they will “reevaluate [the event’s] security measures.”
