Olivia Wilde has broken her silence after her ex-partner Jason Sudeikis had her served with legal papers while she was presenting at CinemaCon in April of this year.
Wilde believes her ex used “outrageous legal tactics” in an attempt to embarrass and “threaten” her.
“Jason’s actions were clearly intended to threaten me and catch me off guard,” Wilde said according to new court documents obtained by the Daily Mail.
“He could have served me discreetly, but instead he chose to serve me in the most aggressive manner possible.”
The director believes Sudeikis was intentionally trying to broadcast their personal business to the public and added that it’s unfair to their two children: Otis, 8, and Daisy, 5.
“The fact that Jason would embarrass me professionally and put our personal conflict on public display in this manner is extremely contrary to our children’s best interests,” Wilde argued. “Since Jason has made it clear that we will not be able to work this out for our children’s sake outside of the court system, I filed a petition for custody in Los Angeles.”
A source close to Sudekis told Entertainment Weekly at the time that “Mr. Sudeikis had no prior knowledge of the time or place that the envelope would have been delivered, as this would solely be up to the process service company involved and he would never condone her being served in such an inappropriate manner.”
Following the incident, which made the news internationally, Deuxmoi was been inundated with sources who have revealed WTF is going on.
The first insider backed up Entertainment Weekly’s claim that Sudeikis “did not know that the papers would specifically be served on stage.”
“He knew she’d be at CinemaCon but you don’t tell the server where to actually serve the papers,” they said.
“Obviously Olivia was extremely embarrassed which is why she loudly said it was a script.”
They added that naturally, Olivia is “very upset” about how it all went down, but the insider posed the question: “What does this situation prove? Is JS still super bitter over how his relationship with OW ended?”
A second source supported this, telling Deuxmoi: “I can 100 per cent confirm Jason absolutely had no idea where Olivia would be served. That’s not even how that works. He would never embarrass the mother of his children like that on a very important night for her.”
They also demanded that both CinemaCon and the serving agency apologise to Olivia, adding that a “statement from Jason is forthcoming.”
Meanwhile a staffer who used to work at an event similar to CinemaCon wrote in and said the whole thing doesn’t make sense.
“It baffles me that the ‘server’ was able to not only get credentialed to attend an event that is meant for those in the industry and press members of specific associations, but then make it through security lines. It makes my head hurt!”
Deuxmoi agreed with this, adding: “You can’t just walk into CinemaCon!”
Following the incident, a rep for CinemaCon told Entertainment Weekly: “We are reevaluating our security procedures to secure the safety of all of our attendees.”
“Right now we’re just concentrating on as an organisation what we need to do to ensure the safety of our delegates,” the rep added.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the papers were slid onto the CinemaCon stage while Wilde was speaking, and she said “This is for me?” before calling the envelope “very mysterious.”
Wilde then said “I’m going to open it now because it feels like it’s a script?” before looking at the papers inside. Apparently once she clocked what they were, she said “Okay, got it. Thank you.”
She then continued presenting the trailer for Don’t Worry Darling and didn’t comment on the envelope again.
Entertainment Weekly reports that the envelope contained “papers to establish jurisdiction relating to the children” from their father, Jason Sudeikis.
