Olivia Wilde: Actress given custody papers on stage

Olivia Wilde, an actress and director, appeared unfazed after receiving child custody documents while performing on stage in Las Vegas. On Tuesday, she was giving a presentation when she was handed a brown envelope.

When she opened it, she discovered custody papers from her ex-boyfriend Jason Sudeikis.¬†According to sources close to Sudeikis, he had no prior knowledge of the circumstances surrounding the letter’s delivery.

Wilde is best known for her role as Remy ‘Thirteen’ Hadley in the medical drama House and for directing the US high school teen film Booksmart.

In 2011, she met Sudeikis, who is best known for his comedy series Ted Lasso. Before divorcing in 2020, they were engaged and had two children together. At a CinemaCon conference in a theatre, Wilde was interrupted while introducing footage from her upcoming thriller Don’t Worry Darling.

“Is this for me?” Wilde inquired. An unknown woman handed her an envelope marked “private and confidential.”

She scanned the contents of the letter during her presentation before continuing on with her speech.
The letter was never mentioned again, leading to speculation that Wilde had received a new screenplay.

However, it was revealed on Wednesday that the letter actually contained custody papers for her and Sudeikis’ children. A source close to Sudeikis told Variety that “papers were drawn up to establish jurisdiction relating to Ms. Wilde and Mr. Sudeikis’ children.”

“Mr. Sudeikis had no prior knowledge of the time or location at which the envelope would have been delivered as this would have been solely up to the process service company involved, and he would never condone her being served in such an inappropriate manner,” they continued.

After questions arose about how the letter ended up being delivered to Wilde on stage, the event’s organiser, CinemaCon, said in a statement to Variety that it would “re-evaluate” its security protocols.

“Because it’s the right thing to do, we’ll act accordingly. We want to act in a responsible and safe manner.”
