Jason Sudeikis seemed to know his relationship with Olivia Wilde was over because of a salad.
On Monday, October 17, a former nanny to the ex-couple’s two children detailed what really happened behind closed doors, and she provided DailyMail.com with apparent text messages to back up the claims, one of which was alleged that Jason threw himself under Olivia’s car to prevent her from seeing Harry.
Jason and Olivia, however, insist that many of the claims are false.
The nanny, who appears to have been caught in the middle of the feuding duo, said Jason and Olivia’s split was amicable at first, but things took a turn when she started seeing Harry.
The anonymous nanny said she had never seen the duo fight until the ‘Booksmart’ director met Harry on the set of ‘Don’t Worry Darling’. Shortly after, the nanny said that Olivia was spending more time on set and moved into a hotel right before she parted ways with Jason.
“On Monday morning November 9, when I came back from a weekend off, he was crying a lot, crying and crying. I had no idea what had happened,” the nanny said. “After I got the kids ready Jason went upstairs and had coffee. He was crying and messy saying, ‘She left us. She left us!”
The nanny continued, “He was just out of control crying. I didn’t know what to say. He was crying and crying and saying he was going to get her back and that he loved her. He was so heartbroken – j I felt for He started giving me details [of her relationship with Harry] and he said, ‘She set it in motion. She gave him the first blow. She kissed him at one of the dinner parties they hosted for the cast in Palm Springs. She did that.'”

The Emmy-winning actor reportedly discovered details about Harry’s romance after seeing messages on an Apple Watch that Olivia left while filming ‘Don’t Worry Darling’.
A few nights after apparently finding out the details of the romance, Jason reportedly became enraged when Olivia made a “special salad” for Harry…a salad she only ever made for him and their children, Otis and Daisy.
“The night she left with her salad, Jason had chased her, filming her around the house. She was like, ‘I’m scared of you, Jason, I’m scared of you.’ And he said, ‘If you’re afraid of me, why are you leaving your children with me?’ So Jason got out and lay under her car so she wouldn’t leave. She got in his car to back up, he lay under her car so she wouldn’t leave,” the woman said. nanny. “She came into the house and he came in, it was a back and forth. He said he was doing it on purpose to make her late to go see Harry.”
Recalling the conversation, the nanny recalls Jason telling her, “She made this salad and she made her special dressing and she’s leaving with her salad for dinner with [Harry]. I said, what dressing? He said, “She’s got a special dressing she’s making for us and she’s taken it to have with him now.” I don’t know what was in there. Of everything, he was like, ‘She made her special dressing and brought it to him.'”
The nanny said Jason and Olivia went to couples therapy but nothing was ever resolved.
Although she claims that Jason eventually fired her, the nanny has a soft spot for her former boss.
“I have sympathy for Jason because I lived with him and saw him every day and we had a lot of good times. But the bad times were really bad,” she said. “I feel for Jason because he really wanted to make things work, he tried. He left everything to go to therapy and try harder to do better and it didn’t work.”
Still, Jason and Olivia came together on Monday to slam the nanny, insisting many of the claims are false.
“As parents, it is incredibly heartbreaking to learn that a former nanny of our two young children would choose to publicly make such false and scurrilous accusations about us,” the former couple said in a statement obtained by Page. Six. “His now 18-month campaign of harassment against us, our loved ones, close friends and colleagues has reached its unfortunate climax. We will continue to focus on educating and protecting our children with the hope sincere that she will now choose to leave our family alone.”
