Jason Sudeikis, 47, is an American actor, comedian, producer, and writer. He recently released a joint statement with his former girlfriend Olivia Wilde. In a shocking interview conducted last year, the couple’s former nanny had accused Wilde of cheating and mentally harassing Jason.
The former couple asserted in a statement that the nanny, who was not named in the interview, was on an “18-month-long campaign” of misconduct. “As parents, it is incredibly upsetting to learn that a former nanny of our two young children would choose to make such false and scurrilous accusations about us publicly,” they wrote in a statement distributed by several outlets. “Her now 18-month-long campaign of harassing us, as well as loved ones, close friends and colleagues, has reached its unfortunate apex. We will continue to focus on raising and protecting our children with the sincere hope that she will now choose to leave our family alone.” the statement read.
