MaeDay Rescue’s social media post came a few days later Wilde and Sudeikis’ alleged former nanny details about their breakup, including that Sudeikis, 47, was caught off guard and “heartbroken” by Wilde’s new relationship with Styles, 28.
“As parents, it is incredibly heartbreaking to learn that a former nanny of our two young children would choose to publicly make such false and slanderous accusations about us,” Wilde and Sudeikis said in a joint statement. “His now 18-month-long campaign to harass us, our loved ones, close friends and colleagues has reached its unfortunate peak.”
Wilde and Sudeikis started dating in 2011 and had been engaged for several yearsbefore PEOPLE reported in November 2020 that the couple had ended their relationship.
After news of their separation broken, a source told PEOPLE that the couple’s children are their main concern.
“It was amicable and they went into a great co-parenting routine. The kids are the priority and the heart of the family relationship,” the source shared at the time.
