Olivia Wilde Says That Jason Sudeikis Hasn’t Paid Her Any Child Support Despite Him Being A Lot Richer Than Her
After a judge once again shot down Jason Sudeikis’ request to move his messy child custody fight with his ex Olivia Wilde from Los Angeles to New York, she accused him of filing frivolous requests with the court because he’s trying to litigate her until she’s too broke to legally fight him. Olivia said that Jason has a lot more money than her and accused him of using his riches to drag out their legal fight. In her latest filing, Olivia is talking about money again, specifically, all the money that Jason hasn’t given her in child support. The Blast says that Olivia is now asking the court to order Jason to pay child support, including back child support, and also pay for some of her legal fees. Olivia’s attorney is THEE Laura Wasser, so obviously, Ted Lasso’s going to have to fart up more than a dozen biscuits to even begin to put a dent in her lawyer fees.
Olivia and Jason announced their split in late 2020 after she (allegedly) dumped him for Harry Styles, who dumped her a couple of years later. Since their break up, Olivia and Jason have been tusslin’ over child custody and support for their two children, 8-year-old Otis and 6-year-old Daisy. Olivia and Jason currently share custody of their kids. Olivia says in her recent court filing that she and Jason split the cost of their children’s school tuition, but that’s about it. Olivia pays for everything when their children are with her, and she wants Jason to help out so that she can give their kids his “standard of living.” via The Blast:
In the filing, Olivia directly addresses the court, saying “Jason is not currently paying child support to me, despite my requests through counsel that we agree upon an interim support amount to avoid further litigation in this matter. Adding, “While Jason and I have been splitting certain expenses for the children, such as their school tuition, I have been bearing 100% of the costs of the children’s care when they are with me, including, but not limited to, their food, clothing, childcare, extracurricular activities, and transportation costs.”
Olivia writes, “I am asking the Court to make an order regarding child support so that I can adequately provide for our children commensurate with Jason’s standard of living. 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.
Olivia wants at least $500,000 from Jason to pay some of her legal bills. But Olivia doesn’t give a specific amount for how much she wants in child support because she doesn’t have access to his financials. She adds that it’ll cost her $100k to hire forensic accountants to go through Jason’s money situation and come up with a child support amount.
In the end, Wilde’s lawyers put it like this, “it is undisputed that he earns significantly more than Olivia and has greater access to funds. Jason shares equal responsibility with Olivia for the support of their children, yet Olivia has borne the lion’s share of the expenses for their children since the pendency of this action.” She is requesting that Jason be ordered to pay child support “retroactive” to the date which she filed the case.
Interestingly, Olivia has not made a specific amount request, because she doesn’t have access to Jason’s income. In California, the amount ordered to pay in child support is specifically based on the monthly salaries of both parents — and expenses, etc. Wilde claims she will need $100,000 to pay forensic accountants to dig through the information and help identify the amount.
Okay, I’m no forensic accountant, but I did use my forensic accounting skills (read: a two-second Google search) to find out how much Jason and Olivia are worth. The always reliable internet tells me they’re both worth $25 million. But according to Olivia’s filing, her net worth is around $10.6 million, and that includes $645,187 in bank accounts, $3,902,689 in stocks and bonds, and $6,021,860 in property. Olivia states that she brings in about $100,000 a month, but her expenses are $107,000 a month. Her mortgage alone is $60,000 a month, and she spends $4000 monthly on laundry and cleaning. Yes, four thousand fucking dollars on laundry and cleaning. Is she cleaning her clothes in the monk-blessed saliva of an albino bottlenose dolphin? If so, Gwyneth Paltrow totally gave her that tip.
This is probably going to get messier than the Don’t Worry Darling drama, but Olivia’s budget woes have got me wondering about her very special salad dressing recipe, which made Harry Styles’ dick holler, “Awoooga!” She probably has to switch out the Grey Poupon she normally uses in her recipe for generic brand mustard. IN THIS ECONOMY, even Olivia Wilde’s horny salad dressing recipe is not safe.
