Report: Judge sides with Olivia Wilde amid custody battle with ex-fiancé Jason Sudeikis

A judge has reportedly sided with Olivia Wilde in her custody battle with ex-fiancé Jason Sudeikis over their two children.
On Wednesday, a judge denied Sudeikis' custody request and agreed that her case should be heard in Los Angeles rather than New York, which Sudeikis has considered home for the family year-round, according to court documents attached to the People Magazine on Wednesday.

The petition made headlines after the papers were publicly served to Wilde while she was onstage during a presentation of her upcoming film, Don't Worry Darling, at CinemaCon in Las Vegas.

Wilde and Sudeikis share two children: Otis, 8, and Daisy, 5. The former couple starred in Drinking Buddies and began dating in 2011 before getting engaged two years later. They split in November 2020.

Wilde is currently dating singer Harry Styles, who stars in Don't Worry Darling.
A source told Good Morning America in April that Sudeikis was unaware of the nature and timing of the documents' delivery.
But now Wilde accuses Sudeikis of "embarrassing her professionally."
"Jason's actions were clearly aimed at threatening me and catching me off guard," Wilde claimed in her most recent filing, seen by the Daily Mail. "He could have served me discreetly, but instead he chose to serve me in the most aggressive way."
"The fact that Jason is embarrassing me professionally and publicly displaying our personal conflict in this way is extremely against the best interests of our children," she added.

In response, Sudeikis said he "deeply regrets what happened" and reiterated that he has no control over it.

"Olivia's speech was an important event for Olivia, both professionally and personally, and I am very, very sorry that the incident spoiled her special moment," Sudeikis apologized in new court filings.
While co-parenting seemed amicable between the two, things got complicated when they found out where their children will be raised.
Attorney Sara Singer, who represents neither Wilde nor Sudeikis, says what's at stake in the now high-profile custody case is which laws apply to it.
"Different laws in different states will affect how a timeshare schedule is created, how child support is determined," Singer said.
