Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde are reportedly calling it quits in the meanwhile. On Nov. 18, People reported that multiple sources said the couple are taking a break, with one source saying Styles is “still touring and is now going abroad” while Wilde “is specializing in her kids and her work in L.A. It’s a really amicable decision.”
One other source told the outlet that the pair are “still very close friends,” while one other added that “at once, they’ve different priorities which might be keeping them apart.”
Wilde and Styles were first spotted holding hands in January 2021 while attending a marriage. “They were affectionate around their friends, held hands, and looked very completely satisfied. They’ve dated for just a few weeks,” a source told People. The marriage took place shortly after the pair had wrapped production on their psychologial thriller, “Don’t Worry Darling,” which Styles starred in and Wilde costarred in and directed.
Initially, Wilde and Styles managed to maintain their relationship relatively private and were only spotted on one romantic stroll of their first 12 months together. “What started off as a detailed friendship, quickly turned romantic,” one other source told People in 2021. “Everyone saw it coming. During breaks, he hasn’t been capable of stay away and visited her trailer.”
Nevertheless, the pair needed to endure an intense swath of drama within the buildup to the discharge of “Don’t Worry Darling,” which premiered on Sept. 23. Initially, rumors that the film’s star, Florence Pugh, and Wilde were in conflict threw the production into the limelight. Those rumors were later exacerbated by various reports concerning every thing from pay disparities as to whether Shia LaBeouf left or was fired and whether Harry Styles spit on Chris Pine on the Venice Film Festival premiere.
To make matters worse, Wilde’s relationship together with her ex Jason Sudeikis took an unpleasant turn when he served her custody papers at CinemaCon in April. Later, a former nanny went to the Each day Mail with claims about their marriage’s dissolution, which included an anecdote about Sudeikis lying underneath Wilde’s automotive while she was trying to depart her home to satisfy Styles (claims the previous couple profusely denied).
After all, their relationship was under intense scrutiny from the beginning. Fans have been enthralled by Styles’s dating history for over a decade, closely following his relationships with quite a few models and famous faces, including Caroline Flack in 2011, Taylor Swift in 2012, Georgia Fowler in 2015, Camille Rowe in 2017, and more. Through the years, Styles has also sparked dating rumors with the likes of Kendall Jenner, Emma Ostilly, Cara Delevingne, Kimberly Stewart, and others.
Up to now, Wilde was married to filmmaker Tao Ruspoli, who she eloped with when she was 19. After eight years of marriage, the couple parted ways in 2011. Following 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 nine years together, Wilde and Sudeikis confirmed that they were splitting in November 2020.
Reps for Styles and Wilde didn’t immediately reply to POPSUGAR’s request for comment on their split.
