For some time, there was no official ‘diagnosis’ of the breakup of Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles. Until recently, we thought it to be a mutual agreement as reported by many major outlets. It seems that the recent break was the result of a “tricky situation.”
People reported Friday that the Don’t Worry Darling director, 38, and the “As It Was” singer, 28, are taking a break from their relationship after nearly two years together.
A source tells People: “The break has been difficult for Olivia. They have had some issues, but Olivia thought they were gonna work through it all. She is disappointed. It’s just a tricky situation, though.”
An insider said last week that the “very amicable decision” to put their romance on pause was because Styles is “still touring and is now going abroad” while Wilde “is focusing on her kids and her work in L.A.”
They simply “have different priorities that are keeping them apart,” a friend of the pair added.
Wilde along with her children, daughter Daisy, 6, and son Otis, 8 (she co-parents with ex-fiancé Jason Sudeikis) — were spotted dancing and singing along at Styles’ Nov. 15 concert in Los Angeles. She stepped out for the 13th Governors Awards on Saturday, her first red carpet appearance since news of their break. Styles, meanwhile, is heading abroad for his Love on Tour shows.
Styles, on the other hand, was seen car shopping for very expensive foreign cars after the breakup happened. Maybe that was his way of dealing with the loss.
Over the course of their relationship, Wilde and Styles have had to endure drama surrounding the release of their film Don’t Worry Darling, namely persistent claims that Wilde and the film’s leading actress Florence Pugh were at odds.
A friend said that the pressure that was put on them was just too much as well.
