Harry Styles swears Olivia Wilde are reportedly stopping for now. On Nov. 18, People reported that multiple sources said the couple were taking a break, with one source saying that Styles is “still on tour and currently going overseas” while Wilde is “focusing on her kids and her career in LAY. This is a very kind decision. “
Another source told the outlet that the pair are “still very close friends,” while another added that “right now they have different priorities that keep them apart.”
Wilde and Styles were first spotted holding hands in January 2021 while attending a wedding. “They were affectionate around their friends, holding hands and looking very happy.” They’ve been dating for a few weeks,” a source told People. The wedding took place shortly after the couple wrapped production on their psychological thriller, Don’t Worry Darling, which Styles starred in and Wilde starred in and directed.
Initially, Wilde and Styles managed to keep their relationship relatively private, only seeing each other on one romantic outing during their first year together. “What started as a close friendship quickly turned romantic,” another source told People in 2021. “Everybody saw it coming. At intervals he has not been able to stay away and visit her trailer.’
However, the couple had to endure a lot of drama in preparation for the release of “Don’t Worry Darling”, which premiered in September. 23. Initially, rumors that movie star Florence Pugh and Wilde were in conflict threw the production into the limelight. These rumors were later fueled by various reports on everything from the pay gap to whether Shia LaBeouf left or was fired to whether Harry Styles spat on Chris Pine at the Venice Film Festival premiere.
To make matters worse, Wilde’s relationship with ex-husband Jason Sudeikis took an ugly turn when he served her custody papers at CinemaCon in April. The former nanny later spilled the beans to the Daily Mail about their marriage breakdown, which included a story about Sudeikis lying under Wilde’s car while she was trying to leave her home to meet Styles (claims the former couple flatly denied).
Of course, their relationship was under intense scrutiny from the start. Fans have been fascinated by Styles’ dating history for over a decade, closely following his relationships with numerous models and famous faces, including Caroline Flack in 2011, Taylor Swift in 2012, Georgia Fowler in 2015, Camille Rowe in 2017 and more. Over the years, Styles has also sparked dating rumors with the likes of Kendall Jenner, Emma Ostilly, Cara Delevingne, Kimberly Stewart and more.
Wilde was previously married to film producer Tao Ruspoli, whom she divorced when she was 19. After eight years of marriage, they parted ways in 2011. After rumored romances with Bradley Cooper and Justin Timberlake, Wilde began dating Sudeikis in 2011. In 2013, the couple got engaged and welcomed a son, Otis, in 2014 and a daughter, Daisy, in 2016. After after nine years together, Wilde and Sudeikis confirmed they were calling it quits in November 2020.
