Olivia Wilde & Jason Sudeikis' Former Nanny Sues Them, Explains Why She Believes She Was Fired

Ericka Genaro, the former nanny for Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde, is suing them for discrimination and alleging that she was terminated over her mental health.

If you’re wondering, this is not the first time this nanny has been in the headlines. In October, she made some wild claims about Olivia and Jason‘s relationship, including that he once laid underneath Olivia‘s car to prevent her from seeing Harry Styles, and alleging Olivia cheated on Jason with Harry.

The court documents (via People) state that Olivia “abruptly left the home where she lived” in November 2020. “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.”

The nanny alleges that Jason asked her to “stay up at night after the kids were put to bed to talk” and that their discussions “naturally evolved to speaking about Wilde.”

She added that she felt the need to pick sides between the pair and this caused “extreme anxiety.”

As time went on, things did not get better for Genaro, adding, “The pressure of [Genaro] not only being the primary caretaker of the children, but also filling in Wilde‘s absence for the children, became debilitating.”

Genaro claims she and Olivia met up at one point to talk about “becoming anxious and stressed with the situation at the home.”

After this talk, she claims she felt a “genuine sense of relief and comradery” but soon learned she had “shared with [Jason] the entire conversation.”

“[Genaro] was stunned at the abrupt announcement, and her heart sank because of its significance — there was no peace when confiding in Wilde,” the lawsuit continued. “Sudeikis then asked [Genaro] ‘do you trust me?’ as part ‘gotcha,’ part threat and part confirmation [Genaro] was on Sudeikis’ side.”

When Jason and Olivia‘s split became public knowledge, Genaro says her “anxiety and stress did not get any better.”

She then sought the help of an osteopath to help her through “physical pain, anxiety and stress.” The osteopath advised she take a “three-day medical leave of absence because of her mental health,” but alleges that when Jason contacted her, she was fired.

“When [Genaro] responded she is under the osteopath’s orders to not speak with anyone because of her anxiety, Sudeikis terminated her on the spot,” the complaint added.

In total, Genaro wants “loss of earnings, deferred compensation, and other employment benefits” from the lawsuit. She added that she believes she was fired was “because of her disability of anxiety/depression, and for seeking the reasonable accommodation of a three day leave of absence for same.”

If you missed it, a bombshell exposé was released in October of 2022 from this same nanny, who revealed a ton of information and alleged Olivia cheated on Jason with Harry Styles, among many other sordid headlines. Olivia and Jason denied the nanny’s account of what happened (which included Jason apparently laying underneath Olivia‘s car to prevent her from leaving and bringing Harry her special, sentimental salad dressing.)

Reps for Olivia and Jason did not respond to request for comments.
