Livia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis have issued a joint statement after their former nanny gave a bombshell interview about their split.

In a statement, the former couple claimed their ex-employee, who was not named in the interview, engaged in an “18-month campaign” of harassment.

They wrote in the statement shared via several outlets: “As parents, it is extremely upsetting to learn that a former nanny of our two young children would choose to publicly make such false and vile allegations against us.

“Her now 18-month campaign of bullying us, as well as loved ones, close friends and colleagues, has reached its unfortunate climax.

“We will continue to focus on raising and protecting our children in the sincere hope that she will now choose to leave our family alone.”

The childcare worker claimed in an interview with the Daily Mail that Wilde broke up with Sudeikis after she started directing Harry Styles on the set of Don’t Worry Baby, something she has vehemently denied.

Wilde has previously said her relationship ended long before her romance with Styles began and claims any other account is “completely inaccurate”.

She told Vanity Fair last month: “The whole idea that I left Jason for Harry is completely false.

“Our relationship ended long before I met Harry. Like any relationship that ends, it doesn’t end overnight.

“Unfortunately, Jason and I have had a very bumpy ride and we officially ended the relationship around the start of the pandemic.”

Wilde and Sudeikis began dating in 2011 before getting engaged in 2013. Their split was first reported in November 2020.

The former couple has two children: daughter Daisy, 5, and son Otis, 8.

The couple’s split has been controversial at times since Wilde obtained child custody papers on behalf of her ex-fiancé while appearing on stage to promote her new film.

Wilde was appearing at CinemaCon in Las Vegas to promote her thriller Don’t Worry Baby when she was handed a brown envelope.

An unknown person slipped an envelope labeled “private and confidential” across the front of Wilde’s stage, which later turned out to contain custody documents related to the two children the 38-year-old has with the Ted Lasso star.

However, a source told CNN at the time that Sudeikis “had no prior knowledge of when or where the envelope would be delivered” and called it “inappropriate.”

The Standard has contacted reps for Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis for comment.
