OLIVIA WILDE, JASON SUDEIKIS SPLIT AFTER 7-YEAR ENGAGEMENT – (11/16/2020)
Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis are splitting up after being engaged for seven years. The 36-year-old Booksmart director and 45-year-old Ted Lasso star share Otis, 6, and Daisy, 4. An insider tells People: “The split happened at the beginning of the year. 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.”
They started dating in November, 2011 and he proposed after the holidays in 2012.
Sudeikis told Stephen Colbert on The Late Show of their courtship: “I actually came off looking a little cooler than I really am because I had heard through the grapevine, through mutual friends who weren’t exactly her best girlfriends, who would report back, ‘Oh you know, I think she’s dating someone.’ So I didn’t make any moves. I was just very, very busy with other things. And next thing you know, I stopped being busy, she stopped dating someone, and then it was off to the races.”
Twitter reacted with horror. Wrote one: “Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis broke up so can someone please check on Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively? They’re our last chance at believing in love.”
They were last spotted in September at the beach, mid-PDA. Wilde was spotted post-break-up, keeping it casual in a tan coat, white pants and a black face mask. She appeared to be doing shopping in L.A.
In a social media post over the weekend, Wilde reflected on her love for their kids, dubbing them “my everythings” on her IG Story.
