    Former Nanny of Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis Seeks Trial

    Olivia Wilde, aged 39, and Jason Sudeikis, aged 48, may have recently resolved their custody battle, but legal troubles persist as their former nanny, Ericka Genaro, pursues a lawsuit against the former couple, alleging discrimination. The ongoing legal saga took a new turn when a judge decided to move the case into private arbitration, a decision that has sparked controversy.

    The engagement of Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis, which spanned from 2013 to their separation in November 2020, has been marred by the legal wrangling that followed. Ericka Genaro, their children’s former nanny, initiated a lawsuit against the once-loving pair, accusing them of discriminatory actions in February.

    Ericka’s attorney, Ron Zambrano, expressed dissatisfaction with the court’s choice to shift the case to private arbitration. In a statement released on October 4, Zambrano declared, “We respectfully disagree with the judge’s decision to move this case into private arbitration and are seeking all avenues to have the ruling reversed and allow us to try this case before a jury of their peers.” He added, “We believe the judge did not apply the actual facts presented to applicable law which should have led to a finding that the agreement was unenforceable.”

    The legal team representing Ericka then leveled accusations against the high-profile couple, suggesting their aim was to “silence” her through a private mediation process. The statement continued, “The evidence is insurmountable to support our claims, including text messages and testimony that she was driven to quit, then was summarily fired anyway. Ms. Wilde and Mr. Sudeikis merely want this case moved into arbitration to silence Ms. Genaro. We believe they should not be given special treatment merely because they are celebrities and should have to face their accuser in court.”

    On October 3, Ericka’s legal team lodged an appeal in California’s 2nd District Court of Appeal, contending that the decision to transfer the case to private arbitration was an “error.” Earlier this year, she had accused the celebrity parents of terminating her employment due to her mental health struggles, as reported by US Weekly. According to documents, Ericka’s legal representatives claimed that her mental health deteriorated following Jason and Olivia’s split in 2020.

    Ericka’s legal filings alleged that Olivia Wilde, the director of “Booksmart,” “abruptly left the home where she lived.” The couple shares two children, Otis, aged 9, and Daisy, aged 6. The documents further asserted, “Wilde’s sudden absence from the home had an adverse consequence on its emotional state, including Sudeikis leaning on the presence of [Genaro] for support.” Amidst the tumultuous breakup, Ericka contended that she often felt compelled to “pick sides” between the two parents. Olivia and Jason called off their engagement in November 2020, paving the way for Olivia’s subsequent romance with Harry Styles.
