Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis split up in 2022, and maybe one of them is quite unhappy with the financial arrangements between them since that time. Based on a story from The Blast, Wilde has already made a legal filing in Los Angeles court alleging that Sudeikis has left her with “100 % of the costs for the children’s care” since they divorced, and now she is looking for a judge to order Sudeikis to help, citing his high income and wealth compared with hers.
Wilde allegedly addresses the court herself in that filing:
“Jason is not currently paying child support to me, despite my requests through counsel that we agree upon an interim support amount to avoid further litigation in this matter…While Jason and I have been splitting certain expenses for the children, such as their school tuition, I have been bearing 100% of the costs of the children’s care when they are with me, including, but not limited to, their food, clothing, childcare, extracurricular activities, and transportation costs.”
Wilde is not asking for a particular amount in child support for now, since she does not know exactly how much Sudeikis is making, and the figure might consider those. Nonetheless, she is asking for the court to order him to pay up to $100,000 for a forensic accounting job to get the number precisely, plus another $500,000 for her legal fees in this matter.
None of that money is strange when one half of a divorce is making a lot more money than the other half, a scenario that Wilde states is not in dispute:
“While I have yet to receive specific financial information from Jason, my understanding and belief is that he is wealthier than I am and has far greater income. I have no reason to believe that Jason would dispute this.”
Wilde made several financial disclosures to the court, including more than $10 million in different assets and $40,000 per month in income, but also over $100,000 in monthly expenses. In that context, a judge will decide what to do next, since the couple is also engaged in a different legal battle over custody of their two children.
