Olivia Wilde looks somber while out in West Hollywood amid child support battle with Jason Sudeikis
Olivia Wilde looked somber as she stepped out to meet some of her friends in West Hollywood on Thursday.
The Don’t Worry Darling director’s, 38, outing comes a day after it was reported that she’s ‘locked in a dogfight’ with ex Jason Sudeikis, 47, over child support issues.
The duo — who split in 2020 — are parents to son Otis, eight, and daughter Daisy, six.
Olivia rocked an oversized striped button-up top which she paired with black pants that flared out at the bottom.
The House star shielded her eyes with a pair of black sunglasses and sported a chic black YSL crossbody bag for the outing.
Out and about: Olivia Wilde looked somber as she stepped out to meet some of her friends in West Hollywood on Thursday, following news of her child support battle with ex Jason Sudeikis.
She paired the outfit with black loafer shoes and wore her brunette tresses down for the day.
On Wednesday it was reported that she and Jason are continuing to thrash out how their child support will be handled, despite vowing to co-parent in a healthy way.
According to TMZ, Olivia and Jason are still very much locked in a dogfight.
Furthermore, there is said to be no chance of any reconciliation between the two, despite them being pictured hugging each other in LA on Friday.
Sources told the site: ‘Jason’s New York attorney, Bill Beslow, has gone to a New York judge to resolve all child support issues. But last July both a New York judge and a California judge ruled all custody issues should be handled in LA
‘Beslow went to a New York court January 4 and asked the judge to handle all child support issues, and the judge set a hearing date for February 15.’
Olivia is said to be baffled by this because both a New York judge and a California judge have already said this is an LA and not a New York case.
And she would like both custody and child support decided in LA
Casual: Olivia, 38, rocked an oversized striped button-up top which she paired with black pants that flared out at the bottom.
The site continues: ‘Beslow is appealing the decision to have custody decided in LA. Olivia’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, and Olivia’s New York lawyer have filed legal docs asking the judge on February 15 to dismiss Beslow’s move to handle child support in New York, so A judge in LA can decide all issues involving the children.’
Furthermore, it has been reported that Ted Lasso star Jason doesn’t want any child support from Olivia.
He is said to be willing to pay her “a reasonable amount” in child support either decided by both of them or by a New York judge.
The news comes after it was reported that Olivia and ex Jason are ‘getting along better now’ since her split from Harry Styles and are ‘co-parenting in a healthy way’.
Olivia and Jason are maintaining a ‘cordial’ relationship since their split from Harry, 28, in November, reports ET, days after the actors were seen hugging after a meeting in LA.
A source said: ‘Olivia has been focusing all her energy on her kids and family since her split with Harry, and now that they’re broken up, it’s been easier for Jason and Olivia to get along.
‘Jason has been trying to be supportive of Olivia and a good co-parent during this transition. Things between Jason and Olivia are cordial and going well.
‘Things between Olivia and Jason are manageable and she’s doing her best to co-parent with him in a healthy way. She isn’t rushing to date anyone again right now.
‘They’re still locked in a dogfight’: On Wednesday it was reported that Wilde and Sudeikis ‘continue to battle out their child support agreement’ despite their recent friendly hug

The source added that Olivia is ‘still pretty hurt’ by her split from Harry’ but the singer ‘isn’t too broken up’ by their split.
The pair have waged an ugly custody battle over their children, overlapping with Wilde’s relationship with Harry Styles, whom she directed in last year’s film Don’t Worry Darling.
Styles, whose involvement with Don’t Worry Darling was at the center of dramatic rumors in the run-up to the film’s release, split from Wilde in November after a romance that spanned nearly two years.
Wilde and Sudeikis were glimpsed the following month having what appeared to be a tense conversation after they left a two-hour meeting together in Hollywood.
However they appeared more at ease with each other during their sightings this week, chatting with each other and indulging in an affectionate hug.
The drama between them during their legal battle has seeped out into public view multiple times, including when she was notoriously served with custody papers while onstage at CinemaCon last April.

Wilde called the incident ‘an attack on her workplace’, but said she was not surprised at it happening because there was a ‘reason’ she left her relationship with Sudeikis.
In court documents obtained by DailyMail.com, she argued that the decision to serve her onstage in front of an audience was a bid to ‘threaten’ and ’embarrass’ her.
Sudeikis has maintained that he did not know Wilde would be served the papers in such a public and humiliating way.
Sudeikis filed suit against his ex in New York City Family Court in October 2021, and the dispute has largely revolved around where the children would live.
While he wanted them to live in Brooklyn, Wilde was hoping to have them stay in Los Angeles and possibly relocate to London, where her then-boyfriend Harry Styles was living.
