Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde’s custody battle and split has made headlines again, as Wilde, 39, claims Sudeikis, 47, is not paying his child support.
Wilde and Sudeikis ended their seven-year engagement in 2020, stating that their children Otis, 8, and Daisy, 6, were their main priority. A source close to the couple told People in 2020 that the split was amicable and they had a great co-parenting routine. While Wilde and Sudeikis split some costs, such as their children’s school tuition, Wilde has to cover expenses such as “clothes, food, extracurricular activities.” Wilde currently claims 107,000 in expenses, featuring almost 60,000 thousand in “rent/mortgage,” while another 4,000 is devoted to “laundry.”
Legal documents obtained by The Blast include Wilde’s request for a Los Angeles judge to order her ex-husband to pay a “reasonable amount” of child support as Wilde states the “Ted Lasso” actor makes substantially more money than she does.
She also requests that he pay her attorney fees, which is customary in California when one person makes more than the other. The Blast quoted Wilde as saying: “I am also asking that Jason make a contribution to my attorney and accountant fees and costs, not only due to him being in a significantly superior position than me financially, but because the vast majority of the fees I have incurred have been due to Jason and his counsel’s egregious, unnecessary, and aggressive conduct.”
These claims about Sudeikis’s team might be inspired by the 2022 ComicCon incident where Wilde was served legal papers while talking about her upcoming film “Don’t Worry Darling.” However, a source close to Sudeikis claims that the actor did not know the specifics regarding the where and when of the legal papers being delivered.
An objective family attorney David Glass stated that what Sudeikis’s source said was “highly unlikely.” Glass noted that attorneys are obligated to share information with their clients, such as the specifics of legal papers being served to individuals.
Despite the ongoing battle, Sueidikis and Wilde commit to supporting their children together as they were seen interacting amicably at their son’s soccer game.
