November 2020: The couple end their seven-year engagement amidst rumors that Olivia Wilde cheated on Jason.
Then in 2020, we all learned that love isn't real.
On Nov. 13, People reported that Jason and Olivia ended their seven-year engagement. A source close to the pair revealed that "the split happened at the beginning of the year," and they quickly "transitioned into a great co-parenting routine."
Since then, Olivia has been dating English singer and actor Harry Styles. The pair met while filming Olivia's second feature film, Don't Worry, Darling, and many have speculated that Olivia cheated on Jason with Harry. According to sources, co-star Florence Pugh was bothered by "seeing Olivia and Harry all over each other on set ... as Olivia was still with Jason when she first hooked up with Harry."

April 2022: Olivia Wilde is served child custody papers while on stage at CinemaCon.
While promoting Don't Worry, Darling at CinemaCon on April 26, an individual approached the stage and slid a manila envelope marked "personal and confidential" toward Olivia.
After asking if it was for her, the 38-year-old director looked over the paperwork before resuming her presentation. The following day, Deadline reported the mysterious envelope contained custody papers from her former fiancé. Olivia and Jason had been arguing about where to permanently raise their kids, with him wanting to settle in New York and Olivia wanting to relocate to London to be closer to Harry Styles.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Jason was furious with the spectacle.
"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," reads a statement provided to the Los Angeles Times. "He would never condone her being served in such an inappropriate manner."
However, Olivia appears to believe the action was intentional. In court documents obtained by the Daily Mail in August 2022, Olivia said, "Jason's actions were clearly intended to threaten me and catch me off guard. He could have served me discreetly, but instead he chose to serve me in the most aggressive manner possible."
