Attendees at CinemaCon in Las Vegas on Tuesday were left perplexed when Olivia Wilde was served an envelope labeled “Personal and Confidential” while she was on stage to discuss her upcoming film Don’t Worry Darling.
Wilde and Sudeikis, who ended their relationship in 2020 after a seven-year engagement, have two children: Otis, 8, and Daisy, 5.
Even though many people assumed that the envelope — which was given to Wilde, 38, by a woman in the audience who approached the stage — contained an unrequested script, sources have confirmed the actress was served legal papers during her presentation pertaining to her children with ex-fiancé Jason Sudeikis during her presentation.
“I’m going to open it right now because it seems like it’s a screenplay,” and once she had opened it, she said, “Okay, I see what you’re saying. Thank you very much.” Her presentation then continued up where she left off.
In addition, the source states that Mr. Sudeikis had no knowledge of the time or location where the envelope would have been delivered because this would have been entirely up to the process service company involved, and he would never accept her being served in such an inconvenient manner if he knew about it in advance.
Though, a family law attorney who is not involved in the case, said that it is “extremely doubtful” that Sudeikis was unaware of the specifics of how Wilde would be served when he appeared on the show.
It was only after it was proven that the delivery included court paperwork that speculation began to surface about how the lady who delivered the envelope managed to get inside the CinemaCon event and near enough to the stage.
“Our security processes are being reviewed as a result of this occurrence in order to protect the safety of all of our participants.”, said event organizer.
