After Olivia Wilde and ex Jason Sudeikis’ former nanny accused the actress of giving away her Golden Retriever Gordon, an animal rescue group issued a statement.
There’s no need to summon Sherlock Bones to solve the mystery of Olivia Wilde’s dog’s whereabouts.
The Los Angeles-based rescue organization MaeDay Rescue issued a statement on Oct. 22 to “set the record straight” about what happened to the director of Don’t Worry Darling’s Golden Retriever Gordon, whom she had adopted from the group. They confirmed what Olivia and ex-Jason Sudeikis’ former nanny claimed in a Daily Mail interview, that the actress had sent her pet to live with her dog walker, and explained why.
“Gordy was adopted by @oliviawilde at 2 months old, and after much love, training, and travel adventures, she realized that Gordy didn’t love the travel life and wasn’t happy around toddlers,” MaeDay Rescue explained. “Gordy had formed a very strong bond with his Brooklyn dog walker, and it was in Gordy’s best interest, and after much thought and consideration, he was rehomed to his Brooklyn dog walker.”
MaeDay Rescue’s social media post came just days after Wilde and Sudeikis’ former nanny allegedly revealed details about their split, including that Sudeikis, 47, was taken aback and “brokenhearted” by Wilde’s then-new relationship with Styles, 28.
“As parents, it is extremely upsetting to learn that a former nanny of our two young children would choose to publicly make such false and scurrilous accusations about us,” Wilde and Sudeikis said in a joint statement. “Her now 18-month-long harassment campaign against us, as well as loved ones, close friends, and colleagues, has reached an unfortunate climax.”
Following their divorce, a source told PEOPLE that the couple’s children were their primary concern.
“It’s been amicable, and they’ve settled into an excellent co-parenting routine. The children are the family’s priority and the heart of the relationship “At the time, the source explained.
