People Are Questioning How Jason Sudeikis Couldn’t Have Known Olivia Wilde Would Be Served Custody Papers At CinemaCon

April 29, 2022 / Posted by:

Even though Olivia Wilde played it cool and was all “what me, worry?” when she was served custody papers while onstage at CinemaCon during a presentation of her new movie Don’t Worry Darling starring her exuberantly bloused boyfriend Harry Styles, she was probably suppressing a big ole “WTF?!” Because that shit was rude as hell. Following the worst You Got Served sequel to date, sources claimed that Olivia’s ex, Jason Sudeikis, with whom she shares kids Otis, 8 and Daisy, 5, had no idea when or where she might be served, adding “he would never condone her being served in such an inappropriate manner.” However, according to People, people ain’t buying it. People spoke to a lawyer who thinks Jason absolutely would have known. And The Wrap reports that CinemaCon officials are also skeptical because very few people even knew Olivia was going to be presenting. Given how dastardly it would have been to serve Olivia publicly only to turn around and condemn the move indirectly, I wouldn’t be surprised if Jason started going method and pretending to be Ted Lasso in his normal life for the next couple of weeks until the speculation dies down. If Jason offers you shortbread, take it, of course, it’s delicious, but take it with a grain of salt. It may contain nuts. Petty, petty nuts.

CinemaCon was obviously shaken by the security breach that allowed an unknown woman to approach the talent during a presentation. After the incident, they immediately responded that they were reevaluating their safety protocols. And after reviewing security footage, they now have a little bit more information about the woman who served Olivia, and a lot more questions about how she got there. Specifically, how the woman was able to get her hands on a registered badge. The Wrap reports:

Speaking to Wrap editor Sharon Waxman for The WrapUp podcast on Thursday, John Fithian, the National Association of Theatre Owners president and CEO, admitted that show officials still don’t know who the woman was that served Wilde with the paperwork or how she became a registered attendee of the show.

“No, no we don’t,” Fithian said. “Because we we’ve looked at the security footage, and we know it was a registered delegate, because she had a badge. And we know it was a woman, but we can’t identify it. We don’t know who she was.”

He later added , “We don’t know how this person got a registered badge to get through security to get into the auditorium. So it’s — we just haven’t figured it out.”

Even more curious is how the process server could have even known Olivia was presenting, let alone where and when.

Individuals with knowledge of the show’s production said Wilde’s appearance had not been made public. Beyond Wilde’s circle and the CinemaCon production team, few — if any — people knew she would be there.

The folks at CinemaCon really don’t buy that Jason had no prior knowledge and “one fuming official,” who declined to speak on the record, said Jason did it on purpose because “he wanted to humiliate her.” And the family attorney People spoke to agrees that something’s not adding up.

Family law attorney David Glass, who is not involved in the case, tells PEOPLE it is “highly unlikely” that Sudeikis did not know any of the details of how Wilde would be served.

“I talked to every one of my clients to get the information on where could we serve him or her,” he says. “We get all that information from them. And if you’re going to go to that sort of extreme length to do it publicly, to do it in an embarrassing way, I can’t see the client not knowing about it. You’re obligated as an attorney to share most things that you’re doing with your client.”

Jason was in London filming S3 of Ted Lasso when Olivia was served. NPR spoke to a process server who said “this incident was more public than anything he has ever seen,” and that they were “curious about what other methods and what other attempts had been made,” adding “this is like a last-ditch effort.” But a source told Page Six that Olivia was confused and mortified.

“It seemed unthinkable to her, and it took a moment to set in, but as mortifying as it was, she did not want to give a reaction.”

“She was there to introduce a project that is near and dear to her heart, and for someone to try to take that moment from her — whether it be Jason, a process server or anyone else — was beyond inappropriate,” the source tells us.

If Jason really did know in advance that Olivia would be served on stage, and especially if it was the first attempt to serve her, then he might just be cold-blooded enough to have drawn a little doodle on the papers too, as a callback to the time he said about their split, “I’ll have a better understanding of why in a year, and an even better one in two, and an even greater one in five, and it’ll go from being, you know, a book of my life to becoming a chapter to a paragraph to a line to a word to a doodle.” If that were the case, then damn son! It’s only been a year and he’d already be saying “You Got Doodled!
