Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde are hot and cold — one minute they’re duking it out in court, the next they’re all kumbaya in public … and this time, it’s the latter they’re showing.
The exes were spotted attending their son’s soccer game together in L.A. Saturday, and wouldn’t you know it — they actually looked super happy and chill around one each other … even sitting in the stands side by side, and giving one another a huge on the way out.
It’s interesting they were acting this way out in the open … for a couple reasons, actually.
For starters, we saw similar behavior from Jason and Olivia earlier this year — when they were hugging it out after apparently leaving some sort of meeting they were both at. At the time, it seemed everything between them was water under a bridge … but it wasn’t.
Since then … we know they’ve been waging war behind the scenes, filing court paperwork in their ongoing custody battle … with Olivia recently taking home a big W. As we reported … a judge finally ruled that their case will be heard in L.A. and not in NY (where JS wanted).
Remember, they share two young children together … Otis and Daisy, who are 8 and 6, respectively. The family had lived in the Big Apple for a while — but the courts have now decided, once and for all hopefully, that their primary residence is, in fact, in Los Angeles.
Perhaps this latest outing is them actually turning a new leaf and waiving the white flag — or, it could just be optics. However cynical you are will dictate where you land.
One other reason this is kinda neat to see … Jason is very famous for playing Ted Lasso in the self-titled Apple show, which is a huge hit — and whose third season just started.
Funny enough, Jason’s character in the show is also going through divorce and custody issues … and now, here’s the real dude showing up to a soccer game. Art/life/imitate, etc.
