Olivia Wilde WAS served custody papers from ex Jason Sudeikis while on stage at Cinemacon

Olivia Wilde was served custody papers by the father of her children Jason Sudeikis while live on stage at the 2022 CinemaCon. 

The 38-year-old actress was at the center of the presentation for her film Don’t Worry Darling in Las Vegas on Tuesday night for 4,100 film industry experts, when she received legal documents from her former partner Jason Sudeikis.

He is best known for his starring role in Apple TV+ series Ted Lasso. 

Deadline reported on Wednesday that according to their sources the manila envelope that was placed on stage at Caesars Palace’s The Colosseum, contained custody papers from the 46-year-old Emmy winner.

And Variety has claimed that Sudeikis did not know Wilde would be served the papers in such a public and humiliating way. The actress is currently dating Harry Styles, 28. 

A source told the publication: ‘Papers were drawn up to establish jurisdiction relating to the children of Ms. Wilde and Mr. Sudeikis,

‘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.’ 

It had initially been reported that the documents were an unsolicited script sent by a fan in the hopes of receiving Wilde’s attention.

Olivia was briefly interrupted when an unidentified person approached from the front rows of the audience as the Vegas event, and slid the manila envelope across the front of the stage toward her.

‘This is for me?’ Olivia asked, before opening the envelope and briefly reading the documents. She then continued with her presentation. 

Olivia and Jason, who were previously engaged, had separated in late 2020 and share two children together: Eight-year-old son Otis and five-year-old daughter Daisy.

Details of their current custody arrangement remain private, and neither Olivia nor Jason have commented on the contents of the envelope.  

At the time the unusual moment had sent attendees and reporters at the annual gathering of cinema owners and Hollywood studios, curious to the envelope’s contents, with some even wondering if she had just got ‘served’ with a subpoena to appear in court.

CinemaCon said they are now reevaluating their security procedures, in light of the incident: ‘We have never in the history of the convention had an incident where a delegate has approached the stage who was not authorized to be there,’ Mitch Neuhauser Managing Director of CinemaCon said in a statement to Deadline.

‘In light of this incident, we are reevaluating our security procedures to ensure the safety of all our attendees.’ In order to get into Vegas’ Colosseum for CinemaCon, non-industry attendees need to purchase a badge. 

Wilde’s latest film Don’t Worry Darling is being released by Warner Brothers this coming September and stars her much younger boyfriend Harry Styles, 28. 

The duo formed a close bond while shooting the psychological thriller, which also features the likes of Florence Pugh and Gemma Chan, in 2020.

News of Olivia and Jason’s split came on November 13, 2020 with sources claiming it was ‘amicable’ and that their two children son Otis and daughter Daisy Josephine would remain a ‘priority.’

Jason and Olivia’s split was first reported by PEOPLE with a source close to the couple saying: ‘The split happened at the beginning of the year [2020]. It’s been amicable and they’ve transitioned into a great co-parenting routine. The children are the priority and the heart of the family’s relationship.’ 

Despite the initial reports of an amicable split, a source claimed to Entertainment Tonight in January 2021, that Jason had been ‘really hurt’ by her moving on with Harry.

A source said: ‘[Jason] has been really hurt and somewhat jealous that Olivia has moved on with Harry.’

There have also been conflicting reports as to the timeline of Olivia’s split from Jason and when she started her new relationship with Harry.

The original PEOPLE report on their split claimed that Olivia and Jason broke up ‘at the beginning’ of 2020, but further sources claimed ‘she and Jason were very much together as recently as this fall [2020].’

A report from UsWeekly claimed: ‘Olivia called off the engagement in early November [2020] but only after she already had gotten close to Harry.’ Olivia cast Harry in her film in September 2020 after Shia LaBeouf was fired from the role.

Rumours of Harry and Olivia’s romance were confirmed when they were seen holding hands at his agent’s wedding in Montecito, California, on January. 3 2021, raising eyebrows over just how quickly she had moved on.

There were conflicting reports on the exact timing of their split, with a source claiming to PEOPLE in a January 2021 report: ‘Jason feels that the timeline that Olivia and Harry would like people to believe – that she and Jason split ages ago, long before she became involved with Harry – is simply not accurate.’

Sweet: Olivia is now dating Harry Styles, 28, (seen on set in 2020) after they formed a close bond while shooting the psychological thriller in late 2020

The source added that the trouble began around the start of production on Wilde’s sophomore directorial effort in the fall of 2020.

‘She began filming [Don’t Worry Darling] in September, and by October, he began to get the impression that she wanted out. By November, they’d announced their split.’

The source emphasized ‘that’s how quickly it happened,’ adding that ‘none of it happened until she began filming with Harry.’

In a December 2021 interview with American Vogue the actress referred to the timeline dispute, telling the magazine: ‘It’s obviously tempting to correct a false narrative.’

‘But I think what you realize is that when you’re really happy, it doesn’t matter what strangers think about you.’

Adding: ‘All that matters to you is what’s real, and what you love, and who you love.’

Jason has since moved on with his Ted Lasso co-star, British glamour model Keeley Hazell.     

Olivia and Jason broke off their seven-year engagement on Nov. 13, 2020 with sources claiming it was 'amicable' and that their two children son Otis and daughter Daisy Josephine would remain a 'priority' (pictured January 2020)

Olivia scrambled to cast Harry to star in her second film after initially casting Shia LaBeouf in the lead role. 

LaBeouf was fired from the project in September 2020 because she has a ‘zero a**hole policy’ and his behavior was ‘off-putting,’ according to Variety, with a source saying: ‘He is not an easy guy to work with.’

Shortly after he was replaced, Shia entered a rehab facility after his ex-girlfriend, FKA twigs claimed he knowingly infected her with an STD and relentlessly abused her.

According the official synopsis, Don’t Worry Darling follows a ‘1950’s housewife living with her husband in a utopian experimental community’ who ;begins to worry that his glamorous company may be hiding disturbing secrets.’

Speaking to Vogue last year, Olivia described the forthcoming film as ‘The Feminine Mystique on acid.’

Don’t Worry Darling is the long-awaited follow-up to Olivia’s lauded directorial debut Booksmart, which hit theaters in March 2019. 

Nearly a year and a half after they first met, Olivia and Harry are still going strong. The actress recently supported Harry as he headlined the Coachella Valley Music Festival the past two weekends. 

She was captured cheering him on in the crowd as he dominated the stage with a guitar in hand.

Recent reports have suggested that Olivia and Harry are getting very serious after she introduced the pop star to her two children. 

Insiders have claimed that despite it looking like a ‘showbiz hook up’ at first, it has become clear that the loved-up couple are much more than that.

Harry, who has previously dated a slew of celebrity girlfriends, has allegedly never been so serious about anyone before, reports The Sun.

A source said: ‘This looked like quite a showbizzy thing at first, two glamorous people hooking up but now it’s obviously a lot more than that.

‘They held back a bit at first but now that things are more settled the time was right to do the next thing.

‘It’s really exciting for them – and for Harry it’s the most serious he has ever really been about somebody.’

It was reported that Harry is ‘slowly’ getting to know the children of his girlfriend Olivia almost a year into their relationship. 

Olivia is currently living in the UK with the singer while estranged husband Jason films the third series of the comedy drama Ted Lasso.

She has her two children in London while he is working on the Apple TV programme, set in the UK.

‘Ironically, it is Jason’s work that means they can be together,’ said a source, adding that friends are expecting Harry and Olivia to marry.
