Did she choose a pop star over her pup?
Olivia Wilde’s former nanny claims the movie director got rid of her dog Gordon in order to be able to travel with her then-new beau Harry Styles and spend more time with him.
“Despues de [Wilde] left [at the start of November 2020]she came for a visit and said, ‘We have to find Gordon a new home,’ nonchalantly,” the ex-employee alleged to the Daily Mail on Tuesday.
“Jason doesn’t really care for animals and wanted him out of their home asap.”
According to the nanny, who chose to remain anonymous, the “Ted Lasso” star, 47, once told her Wilde, 38, only had the pet for “appearances anyway” and that she “rarely cared” for him.
“I told Jason I knew somebody who loves Gordon and was willing to take him in so Jason said, ‘Let’s get him out of here right away,’” the woman further claimed.
The dog reportedly went to live with Wilde’s dog walker, who is based in New York.
Aside from the allegations about Wilde’s Golden Retriever, the nanny has made several damning claims about her former bosses, including that a lovelorn Sudeikis once threw himself under Wilde’s car to stop her from leaving and that he allegedly kicked the worker out of his house in a drunken rage.
However, exes Wilde and Sudeikis banded together on Monday afternoon to debunk the nanny’s claims.
They said in a joint statement to Page Six, “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.
“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.”

Despite Sudeikis and Wilde’s attempt to shut her down, the Daily Mail released a second part of their interview with the nanny, in which she also alleged that the “Don’t Worry Darling” director led on the former “Saturday Night Live” star.
“When I saw Olivia holding hands as a couple with Harry in the news [in January 2021]I was shocked as just a month before, when we were in LA, she was sending Jason messages saying she loved him,” the woman alleged to the outlet.
“Then Jason said, she was just here [at the house] and she was naked in the pool and then she slept with me naked in the bed.”
Reps for Sudeikis did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment on the nanny’s more recent claims and Wilde’s rep declined to comment on the latest allegations.
Wilde has denied that she left Sudeikis for Styles, 28, although an insider recently told us that the father of two was heartbroken over the split.
The former couple, who got engaged in 2013, share two children: Otis, 8, and Daisy, 6.
