I feel such a sense of relief learning that Jason Sudeikis claims to have ‘had no idea’ his ex-fiancee Olivia Wilde would be served with custody papers while she was on-stage in front of 4,000 people.  word is he’s ‘appalled’ by the incident, which took place while the actress was giving a presentation about the movie that sparked her romance with current boyfriend Harry Styles.

A source close to the former couple has now revealed that he was just as blindsided by the serving as Wilde, telling exclusively that Sudeikis had ‘no idea’ the papers were being presented to her this way. He says he was not made aware of the incident until images of her opening the envelope on stage went public.

Sounds like some server decided to have some fun with his dumb job.

‘Jason had no idea that this was happening,’ the insider shared. ‘Nobody knew until the photos suddenly appeared. He is appalled about the whole thing and never would have wanted Olivia to be put in this kind of situation.

‘His sole priority is their children and making sure that they are safe and happy.’

The source added that the papers in question were not actually ‘custody’ documents as widely reported, but rather jurisdiction papers, which typically determine which court will hear and decide a child custody case.
