Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles ‘thriving’ amid former nanny’s claims

Despite the ongoing drama surrounding Olivia Wilde, she and her lover Harry Styles are reportedly doing just fine.

Wilde was already in hot water with the drama surrounding her film Don’t Worry Darling, but it has amped up considerably since a former nanny of hers made shocking claims about her engagement with Jason Sudeikis earlier this week.

However, a source told People: “Harry and Olivia are great. They’re better than ever. They rise above this sort of thing all the time and they’re just moving forward with their relationship and are happy and thriving.”

Another source added that, “Olivia is happy that Harry is around. All the drama is a lot and definitely affects her.”

“Olivia and Jason don’t have very much contact. When they do, it’s all about the kids. They co-parent as best as they can.” Sudeikis and Wilde are parents to Otis, eight, and Daisy, 5.

It comes after Wilde and Sudeikis’ former nanny spoke out about her experience working for the famous couple during the throes of their split.

The nanny claimed Sudeikis, 47, had laid down in front of Wilde’s car to prevent her from taking her “special salad dressing” to her alleged then-boyfriend, Styles, 28.

“The night she left with her salad, Jason had chased after her, videotaping her in the house,” the nanny told the Daily Mail earlier this week

“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,” she claimed. “He said he was doing it on purpose to make her late going to see Harry.”

Sudeikis and Wilde hit back at the claims in a joint statement.

“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,” they wrote in a statement to Access Hollywood

“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.”

This wasn’t the only acknowledgement Wilde, 38, made of the claims. Following wild speculation about the aforementioned “special salad dressing”, the actress cheekily shared an excerpt from Nora Ephron’s Heartburn on Instagram, which detailed the recipe for the dressing.

On this page in particular – page 177 – Ephron’s Rachel Samstat teaches her soon-to-be-ex-husband Mark Feldman (Bernstein) how to make a vinaigrette as their relationship unravels.

“Mix two tablespoons of Grey Poupon mustard with two tablespoons of good red wine vinegar,” a passage from the page reads.

“Then, whisking constantly with a fork, slowly add six tablespoons olive oil, until the vinaigrette is thick and creamy; this makes a very strong vinaigrette that’s perfect for salad greens like arugula and watercress and endive.”

However, she wasn’t the only one to use Ephron’s work to make a statement. Sudeikis’ on-and-off girlfriend, actress Keeley Hazell also posted a picture of the pages of Heartburn to call out her ex’s ex.

Hazell annotated a passage just a few lines before the infamous salad dressing recipe, in an exchange seemingly asking Wilde about “turning everything into a story”.
