Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis called off their engagement in late 2020, and the custody battle over their children has heated up. In April 2022, Olivia was served with papers while appearing CinemaCon, although the Ted Lasso star claims he didn’t know they would be delivered then and he did not condone this. The legla papers were intended to establish jurisdiction for the children.
The co-parenting appeared to be going well until these papers were served. Olivia responded the Jason had previously agreed to let the children finish the school year in Los Angeles while he filmed Ted Lasso in London, but that he changed his mind and wanted the kids in New York with him when he wasn’t filming.
Last week Olivia Wiled filed documents in court asking Jason Sudeikis to pay child support based on his extremely high income. She says he has paid nothing, and she has paid for everything, including food, clothing, childcare, extracurricular activities, and transportation costs. She wants the support to be commensurate with Jason’s standard of living, and wants $50,000 to cover the costs of her attorney and accountants, based on those fees being incurred due to Jason and his attorney’s “egregious, unnecessary, and aggressive conduct.” The forensic accountants are expected to cost $100,000.
Olivia notes in her filing that she spends $107,000 per month, including $60k for rent/mortgage and $4,000 for laundry and cleaning. She reports making $40k per month in salary and $60k per month in Wilde Company income. It has been reported that Sudeikis makes about $400,000 per episode for Ted Lasso, so her argument that he can afford to contribute to the costs of their children seems well-founded.
