On Oct. 17, a former nanny to the ex-couple's two kids spoke to DailyMail.com about the the final days of Jason and Olivia's relationship, and what really happened behind closed doors. Among the claims, the nanny alleged that Jason became enraged when Olivia prepared a "special salad" for new beau Harry Styles… a salad that she only ever prepared for the "Ted Lasso" star and their children, Otis and Daisy.
Recalling the conversation, the nanny remembered Jason telling her, "She made this salad and she made her special dressing and she's leaving with her salad to have dinner with [Harry]. I said, what salad dressing? He said, 'She has a special salad dressing she makes for us and she's taken it to have it with him now.' I don't know what was in it. Out of everything, he was like, 'She made her special salad dressing and took it to him.'"
As it turns out, Olivia shared a salad dressing recipe with Food Network several years ago, and many believe that that is the exact dressing that made Jason allegedly go over the edge.
As Page Six points out, the dressing can be found in the "Don't Worry Darling" director's roasted salmon salad with zucchini and potatoes recipe. The dressing consists of red wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, honey, salt, garlic and olive oil.
In the bombshell interview, the nanny said, "The night she left with her salad, Jason had chased after her, videotaping her in the house. She was saying, 'I'm scared of you, Jason, I'm scared of you.' And he said, 'If you're scared of me, why are you leaving your kids with me?' So then, Jason went outside and lay under her car so she wouldn't leave. She got in her car to back up, he lay under her car so she wouldn't leave."
A few hours after the interview was published, Jason and Olivia ripped the nanny and denied many of the claims.
"As parents, it is incredibly upsetting to learn that a former nanny of our two young children would choose to make such false and scurrilous accusations about us publicly," the former couple said in a joint statement. "Her now 18 month long campaign of harassing us, as well as loved ones, close friends and colleagues, has reached its unfortunate apex. We will continue to focus on raising and protecting our children with the sincere hope that she will now choose to leave our family alone."
To little surprise, the Internet jumped all over Olivia's salad dressing recipe and left snarky comments on the Food Network site.
"Amazing. Men will throw themselves under cars for another taste. Double the recipe for a little extra to share with a work friend," one person wrote, alluding to the fact that Olivia directed Harry in "Don't Worry Darling." Another commented, "This salad dressing is so good it could ruin a marriage." A third noted, "I'm going to double the recipe so that's there's enough leftovers for hubby to heat up when I bring the dish to share with my sugar daddy."
