The couple’s statement came after their nanny said Sudeikis found out about Wilde’s relationship to Harry Styles through e-mails on her Apple Watch
Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde are joining forces to contest the claims of their former nanny regarding specifics surrounding their split.
“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 couple wrote their feelings in an official statement sent to Fox News Digital.
“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,” the statement concluded.

Wilde and Sudeikis announcement comes following the former nanny who was the couple’s nanny spoke to the media where she said that Sudeikis was aware that Wilde was having a sexual romance to Harry Styles after discovering e-mails on an Apple Watch, and that the “Ted Lasso” star was so upset by the situation that he slept under Wilde’s car to prevent her from visiting Styles.

“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,” the nanny who decided to remain anonymous, claimed that to Daily Mail.
“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!'”
The nanny also stated that Sudeikis prohibited staffers from playing Styles music at their home. She was said to have worked for the family for over three years.
The caregiver who was anonymous also said Sudeikis dismissed she in the month of February in 2021. However the spokesperson for Wilde said to the outlet she decided to resign, and she was not fired.

“I do have sympathy for Jason because I lived with him and saw him every day and we had a lot of good times. But the bad times were really bad,” the mother of the family told the outlet.
“I feel for Jason because he really wanted to make things work, he tried. He left everything to go to therapy and to try harder to do better and it didn’t work out,” she explained.
Wilde as well as Sudeikis have announced that they are engaged in 2013, following their first meeting in the year 2011. They concluded their nine-year relationship in the month of November in 2020.

Despite the display in public of the documents, Sudeikis request to keep her children within New York was dismissed in August after a judge ruled the state of residence for the kids to be California. The application was said to have been filed on Aug. 5.
Wilde began to date Styles, the “One Direction” heartthrob after meeting on the set for “Don’t Worry Darling” in 2020. The pair grew closer as they continued working on the show and announced their relationship in January 2021 when they were invited to Styles Manager Jeff Azoff’s wedding.
