Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis are now being sued by their former nanny for wrongful termination, it reports Daily Mail. According to the nanny, the couple’s breakup caused so much “emotional chaos” that she needed to take time off due to stress and anxiety – which led to her being fired.
Last fall, Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeiki’s former nanny came out and talked about the turbulent time surrounding the couple’s separation in 2020.
In an interview in Daily Mail the nanny claimed that Wilde left Sudeikis for Harry Styles — contradicting the couple’s statements that the relationship had ended long before Wilde and Styles began their relationship.
The nanny also revealed several intimate details about the breakup: among other things, she claimed that Sudeikis allegedly ran under Wilde’s car at one point to prevent her from going to see Styles.
The Nanny: “Emotional Chaos”
Now the former employee is suing the couple, at the same time claiming that the “emotional chaos” that prevailed in connection with the couple’s breakup left her depressed and gave her anxiety.
According to the nanny, Sudeikis broke down when Wilde moved out of their shared home in 2020, leaving him in a “desperate emotional state” and turning to her for support. As a result of several long, nightly conversations, she must have felt urged to “choose a side” in their conflict.
In January 2021, the nanny reportedly agreed to go to group therapy with Sudeikis and Wilde. When she told about the “physical pain, anxiety and stress” she was experiencing, the therapist advised her to see an osteopath to overcome the problems.
According to Daily Mail the osteopath is said to have prescribed three days sick leave, something that Sudeikis and Wilde did not take well.
The court documents state that the nanny was fired “effective immediately” after she informed her employers of the doctor’s recommendation, which is why she is now suing them for wrongful termination and seeking compensation for lost income, deferred compensation and losses of other employment benefits.
Sudeikis and Wilde on the nanny: “Harassment”
After the publication of the interview in Daily Mail last fall, Wilde and Sudeikis issued a joint statement:
“As parents, it is incredibly upsetting to learn that a former nanny to our two young children would choose to make such false and indecent allegations against us in public,” they told Page Six.
“Her now eighteen month campaign to harass us, as well as our loved ones, close friends and colleagues, has reached its unfortunate climax. We will continue to focus on raising and protecting our children with the sincere hope that she will now choose to leave our family alone.”
