Olivia Wilde, Jason Sudeikis' relationship timeline
In 2011, the former couple reportedly began dating after meeting at a Saturday Night Live finale party. Olivia and Jason got engaged the next year and welcomed son Otis in August 2014 and daughter Daisy in October 2016. They called it quits in 2020.
Bitter legal battle over kids
Things appeared amicable between Olivia and Jason for some time after their split; however, the co-parents made headlines in April 2022, when Jason served Olivia with legal documents regarding their children, while she was onstage at CinemaCon in Las Vegas.
In August 2022, a source spoke to People about their bitter custody battle. "She (Olivia) and Jason don't speak to each other, so they have help communicating about the custody schedule," the source had said.
In March 2022, court filings revealed that the former couple was no closer to settling their custody battle, reported People. Oliva's legal team had claimed that Jason was trying to 'litigate her into debt' as they attempted to determine whether Otis and Daisy should live in New York City or Los Angeles.
As per People, a filing by Oliva's legal team in April claimed that Jason was 'not paying child support' to cover costs outside of school tuition. This was disputed by the actor's team.
