Ex-fiancé Jason Sudeikis surprises Olivia Wilde with a “highly public” custody handoff during a CinemaCon film presentation.
A woman near the front of the stage delivered the 38-year-old celebrity a “Personal and Confidential” note, People reports.
The documents were presented to Wilde mid-presentation, on stage. Many in the audience heard Wilde ask, “This is for me?”
She even stated she was going to open it now because it felt like a script.
“Okay, got it,” she said after skimming. “Thank you,” she replied. In case you missed it, the advertisement was for Don’t Worry Darling.
“Papers were written up to establish jurisdiction relating to the children of Ms Wilde and Mr Sudeikis,” sources stated later.
This is in relation to Otis, 8, and Daisy Josephine, 5.
“Mr Sudeikis had no prior knowledge of the time or place the envelope would have been delivered,” the insider continued.
Given the issue’s public nature, family law attorney David Glass says it’s “very implausible” Sudeikis didn’t know how Wilde would be served.
Every client was contacted to find out where they could be served, he said.
“They give us all that info. And if you’re going to do it openly, in an embarrassing fashion, I can’t see the client not knowing.”
After all, as an attorney, you must disclose most of your actions with your client.
