Olivia Wilde’s ex-fiancé, Jason Sudeikis, surprises her with custody papers, right in the middle of her promotional appearance at CinemaCon.
According People magazine, on stage the 38-year-old star received a “Personal and Confidential” letter from a woman at the front.
Wilde thought the documents were an unsolicited script and they were delivered in the middle of the performance, on stage.
Many audience members watched the entire exchange, hearing Wilde ask, “Is this for me?”
He even noted the “very mysterious” nature of it, saying that he was “going to open it now because it feels like a script.”
However, after skimming, he simply added, “Okay, I get it. Thank you”, and she continued right where she had left off.
For the inexperienced, the promotion was for do not worry honey and many at the event were stumped as to whether the handoff was part of the presentation, a script, or something more personal.
The sources later explained the content of the documents, revealing, “Documents were drawn up to establish jurisdiction relating to the children of Ms. Wilde and Mr. Sudeikis.”
This is in reference to the two children Wilde and Sudeikis share, son Otis, 8, and daughter Daisy Josephine, 5.
The same informant also gave an explanation about the very public incident and alleged that “Mr. Sudeikis had no prior knowledge of the time or place where the envelope would have been delivered, since this would depend solely on the process services company involved. and he would never approve of being treated in such an inappropriate manner.”
However, family law attorney David Glass weighed in on the public nature of the issue, admitting that it is “highly unlikely” that Sudeikis did not know how Wilde was going to be dealt with.
“I talked to each of my clients to get information on where we could serve them,” he explained.
“We get all that information from them. And if you’re going to go to that kind of length to do it publicly, to do it in an embarrassing way, I can’t see the customer not knowing about it.”
“You are obligated as an attorney to share most of the things you are doing with your client,” after all.
