“Jason’s actions were clearly intended to threaten me and catch me off guard.”
Indeed, four months after the actress was awkwardly served with custody papers while on stage at a live event, Olivia accused her former fiancé of intentionally trying to “embarrass” and “threaten” her.
The actress legally moved to dismiss Sudeikis’ custody petition, according to court documents obtained by the Daily Mail on Aug. 10, and criticized the “aggressive” tactics of the star of Ted Lasso.
“Jason’s actions were clearly intended to threaten me and catch me off guard,” Olivia said in her court filing.
“He could have served me discreetly, but instead chose to serve me in the most aggressive manner possible.”
She continued, “For Jason to embarrass me professionally and expose our personal conflict in this manner is extremely contrary to the best interests of our children.”
Although Sudeikis tried as hard as he could to justify himself in a statement reported by the Daily Mail, saying he had not intended for his ex-fiancée to receive the papers on stage, Olivia Wilde is emerging victorious in their custody battle.
Page Six reported that the judge in their case denied Sudeikis’ custody request after determining that the children’s home state is in California.
The document reads, “Therefore, for the reasons stated on the record on July 15, 2022, the motion to dismiss the custody petitions filed on October 21, 2021, is granted as this court finds that New York cannot hear the custody petitions because New York is not the home state of the subject children.”
