According to reports, Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles have called it quits.
Multiple sources confirmed to People Friday that the “Don’t Worry Darling” director, 38, and the former One Direction singer, 28, are “taking a break” from their relationship after nearly two years of dating.
The decision was said to be “very amicable” and related to their respective careers and priorities.
One source told the outlet:
“He’s still touring and is now going abroad. She is focusing on her kids and her work in L.A. They’re still very close friends.”
A friend of the couple told People:
“Right now, they have different priorities that are keeping them apart.”
An anonymous source told Page Six that there is “no bad blood” between Wilde and Styles, and neither dumped the other.
The insider added:
“This is the longest relationship Harry’s ever had, so clearly they have a special bond.”
According to the source, one factor that contributed to their breakup was the difficulties of long-distance dating.
The insider claimed:
“They’re on a break. It’s impossible to have a relationship when he’s in every continent next year and Olivia has her job and her kids. This is the right thing for both of them.”
According to a second source, Wilde and Styles are splitting up as he begins the South American leg of his tour, and she travels to London for a documentary.
The unnamed source said:
“Things have been challenging for them as a couple because of Harry’s tour, while Olivia needs to spend time with her kids in London, where they are with Jason.”
Styles’ concert in Los Angeles on Tuesday was attended by Wilde and her two children with ex Jason Sudeikis, Otis, 8, and Daisy, 6. At the time, they were already preparing to spend time apart, according to Page Six’s first source, who noted:
“They’re friends, you’ll still see them together.”
Wilde and Styles made their relationship public in January 2021 when they were photographed holding hands at a friend’s wedding in Montecito, California. According to reports, she and Sudeikis split in November 2020, months before her first public appearance as a couple with Styles.
According to some reports, her romance with Styles began in October 2020 while she was still with the “Ted Lasso” actor.
An unnamed insider claimed to Page Six at the time:
“People have tried to make out that Harry and Olivia have only been dating for the past few weeks, but that’s not right. Jason found out about Harry and pushed the conversation. Olivia then asked for a separation and news of the split was made public.”
Before she began dating Styles, Wilde and Sudeikis had been together for nine years and engaged for seven.
Wilde denied the rumors that she left Sudeikis for Styles in September, telling Vanity Fair:
“The complete horses–t idea that I left Jason for Harry is completely inaccurate. Our relationship was over long before I met Harry. Like any relationship that ends, it doesn’t end overnight.”
