Olivia Wilde was stunned to be served custody papers by ex Jason Sudeikis while onstage at CinemaCon Tuesday night.
The “Ted Lasso” star’s lawyers hired a process server to hand crucial documents over to Wilde concerning their two young children.
But Wilde was left shocked when the server tracked her down to Caesars Palace’s in Las Vegas Tuesday night, where she was promoting her new movie, “Don’t Worry Darling.”
However, sources tell Page Six that Sudeikis had no knowledge of the plans — and would “never condone” Wilde being served in such an “inappropriate manner.”
She was handed a manilla envelope from a woman who slid it on stage in the middle of the presentation, asking her: “This is for me?”
After opening the documents, Wilde carried on without blinking — and showed the trailer of the film she directed, starring her boyfriend Harry Styles and Florence Pugh, which was greeted with huge applause from the crowd.

Wilde, 38, and Sudekis, 46, split in November 2020 after seven years together. They were engaged and co-parent son Otis, 8 and 5-year-old daughter Daisy.
A source told Page Six: “Papers were drawn up to establish jurisdiction relating to the children of Ms. Wilde and Mr Sudeikis.
“Mr. Sudeikis had no prior knowledge of the time or place that the envelope would have been delivered as this would solely be up to the process service company involved and he would never condone her being served in such an inappropriate manner.”

They’re currently working out the terms of their custody agreement.
The children are with Sudeikis as he films the new season of Apple TV hit “Ted Lasso.”
Sudeikis has been honest about the painful split from Wilde, telling GQ that he had “reached rock bottom” after the breakup. However, he thanked her at the Critics Choice Awards in March 2021, crediting her for having the idea to turn “Ted Lasso” into a show. Wilde, in return, tweeted her congratulations to her ex and his team.

Deadline reported that the incident had sparked security fears.
In order to get into the Colosseum for CinemaCon, non-industry attendees need to purchase a badge.
The site alleged that those running the show were unaware how the server got in the building, or who they were, as CinemaCon producers just kept the Warner presentation going.
Reps for Wilde and Sudeikis did not immediately return our requests for comment.
