Olivia Wilde is still shellshocked after being served legal papers from her ex, Jason Sudeikis, while on stage in front of over 4,000 people this week. In fact, she feels the situation was "beyond inappropriate."
Earlier this week, Olivia was at CinemaCon in Las Vegas for the premiere of the trailer for her new movie, "Don't Worry Darling." While on stage for the screening, a woman approached from the front rows of Caesars Palace's Colosseum theater and slid a manila envelope on the stage to Olivia's feet. It was initially believed that the mystery woman gave the actress-director an unsolicited movie script, but it was later reported that the envelope contained custody papers.
"Olivia was confused when she was handed the envelope, and she was even more confused when she opened it," a source told Page Six. "It seemed unthinkable to her, and it took a moment to set in, but as mortifying as it was, she did not want to give a reaction."
With 4,100 movie theater owners looking at her, Olivia handled the dramatic interruption gracefully and continued to discuss the trailer, all while holding the envelope on stage.
"She was there to introduce a project that is near and dear to her heart, and for someone to try to take that moment from her — whether it be Jason, a process server or anyone else — was beyond inappropriate," the source said.
After the incident, a source told Wonderwall.com that Jason had nothing to do with the delivery of the papers.
"Papers were drawn up to establish jurisdiction relating to the children of Ms. Wilde and Mr. Sudeikis," a source told Wonderwall.com. "Mr. Sudeikis had no prior knowledge of the time or place that the envelope would have been delivered as this would solely be up to the process service company involved and he would never condone her being served in such an inappropriate manner."
It was believed that Olivia and Jason, who share son Otis, 8, and daughter Daisy, 5, had an amicable split. However, this incident cast doubt on that.
"Olivia and Jason have had their ups and downs, but this was really, really low," Page Six's source said.
