Multiple media sites this week stated that a court recently approved Olivia Wilde’s plea to have the custody suit filed by her ex Jason Sudeikis dismissed. According to court records acquired by People Magazine, a judge last month granted Wilde, 38, her request to have the custody petition Sudeikis, 46, filed in October of last year, dismissed.
The Ted Lasso actor apparently said in his petition that he wanted the ex-couple to raise their children in New York City. According to court documents acquired by The Daily Mail, here is where the family’s daughter Daisy, 5, and son Otis, 8, were born.
According to the paperwork, “Judge Powell and this Referee agreed that the subject children’s home state was not New York, but rather California […] Since New York is not the children’s home state, this court concludes that it lacks jurisdiction to consider the custody petitions, they continued. The two kids will continue to live in California as a consequence.
Furthermore, Wilde apparently claimed in the court documents that Sudeikis had “embarrass(ed) me professionally” when she notoriously received custody papers while giving a lecture at CinemaCon in Las Vegas in April. “Jason’s actions were obviously meant to intimidate me and surprise me. According to the Mail, the director of Don’t Worry Darling allegedly added this in her court filing: “He might have served me quietly, but he instead opted to serve me in the most forceful way imaginable.”
She said, “It is absolutely against the best interests of our children that Jason would disgrace me professionally and put our personal disagreement on public display in this way.
“I filed a petition for custody in Los Angeles since Jason has made it apparent that we won’t be able to resolve this for the benefit of our children outside of the legal system.”
