Over the last week, conflicting narratives have emerged about when exactly Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis ended their seven-year engagement. Initially, when the couple’s breakup was first reported in November, People was told the couple quietly ended things at the beginning of 2020. That timeline was reiterated at the beginning of last week before reports of Sudeikis being “absolutely heartbroken” about Styles and Wilde dating.
In a report from Entertainment Tonight published Monday night, the outlet reports that Wilde and Sudeikis actually split in November. A source also addressed the role that Styles played in that split amid reports that he and Wilde have been dating for a “few weeks” and speculation that there may have been overlap. “While Sudeikis is devastated by Wilde’s new romance with Styles, the musician is not the reason for the couple’s split,” the outlet reported, citing a source.
That source added that Sudeikis is definitely not over Wilde. “Jason is beyond distraught,” the source said. “Of course Jason still has feelings for [Olivia]. This is a fresh split. He’s in absolute shock. He would like to repair things with Olivia and have his family back together.”
Intel on why Wilde and Sudeikis split initially came out in November. Entertainment Tonight was told at the time that “there was absolutely no drama or scandal; they just didn’t work as a couple anymore.”
A second source close to Wilde added that the breakup “was completely mutual,” and “nothing dramatic happened.”
“They just fell out of love in a romantic way, but still have love towards one another as people,” the source added. “They consider themselves friends and co-parents first and foremost. They are committed to co-parenting successfully for the sake of [their kids] Otis and Daisy and have done a great job so far at staying connected in a healthy way for their relationship and for their children.”
Shortly before the Entertainment Tonight story, Us Weekly reported the pair had disagreed about where to have their home base. “Of course, there were arguments and fights over career decisions and where to live,” the source said. “Like most couples, they had disagreements, they were bicoastal, but Jason loved living in New York and Olivia, who was born in NYC, was leaning more toward Los Angeles. She was also busier than him at times, which was difficult at times. They butted heads on many occasions and decided it was best to go their separate ways. Bottom line: they had issues and they were never going to get married.”
Wilde and Sudeikis dated for nine years and were engaged for seven before splitting.
E! also debunked speculation yesterday that Wilde was moving in with Styles after photos ran of her carrying bags out of the L.A. home she and Sudeikis share and going to Styles’ place.
“She stays with him when she doesn’t have kids,” a source told E!, “but she still has her house.” ET reported that Sudeikis and the couple’s children are in London right now, where Sudeikis’ series Ted Lasso is filmed.
