The high-profile relationship between Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde has officially come to an end.
New York Post reports the couple, who were first spotted holding hands in January 2021, have decided to split, just as the dust began to settle following the disaster Don’t Worry Darling press tour.
It comes after sources first told People on Friday that Styles and Wilde were “taking a break” from their relationship.
“He’s still touring and is now going abroad. She is focusing on her kids de ella and her work de ella in LA, ”one source told the outlet. “It’s a very friendly decision.”
The source insisted that the two are “still very close friends,” while another insider added, “Right now, they have different priorities that are keeping them apart.”
News of their break up appears abrupt, given Wilde was spotted at Styles’ Los Angeles concert on Tuesday with her two children.
Despite her appearance at his show, it’s understood they had been preparing to separate, as the former One Direction singer is set to embark on his South American tour, while Wilde is headed to London to work on a documentary.
A source added, “They’re friends. You’ll still see them together. Things have been challenging for them as a couple because of Harry’s tour, while Olivia needs to spend time with her kids from Ella in London, where they are with Jason.
The split comes after the pair were plagued with drama in the lead-up to the release of their film, Don’t Worry Darlingover an alleged feud involving co-star, British actress Florence Pugh.
Rumors began circulating in July that the Pugh, 26, had a falling out with director Wilde, 38, when she failed to promote the psychological thriller in any real way both publicly and on social media.
The speculation worsened when Pugh agreed to appear at only the Venice Film Festival for the movie’s premiere in September and opted out of other promotional appearances.
It’s unclear what exactly sparked the purported feud, but fans believe it had something to do with Shia LaBeouf’s departure from the film. (Styles took over for LaBeouf.)
While Wilde publicly maintained that she had fired LaBeouf, he later explained that he actually quit. Further proving his point from him, a leaked video showed Wilde begging LaBeouf to stay on, in which she referred to Pugh as “Miss Flo”, adding she would receive a “wake-up call.”
Pugh’s glam team made it clear that they had seen the video by wearing customized “Miss Flo” T-shirts while preparing her for Venice.
All while Wilde was grappling the Pugh drama, the former OC star was also dealing with a very nasty split-turned-custody battle with ex-fiance Jason Sudeikis, whom she had been with for almost a decade. Most fans believed Wilde dumped the ted lasso star, 47, for Styles, 28, which she denied.
“The complete horses**t idea that I left Jason for Harry is completely inaccurate,” the booksmart director, who shares children Otis, 8, and Daisy, 5, with Sudeikis, told Vanity Fair in her October 2022 cover story.
“Our relationship was over long before I met Harry,” she explained. “Like any relationship that ends, it doesn’t end overnight.”
