Jason Sudeikis is every inch the doting dad as he takes his kids to music class before shuffling to son's soccer game in LA amid child custody battle
Jason Sudeikis spent some quality time with his kids on Saturday by taking them to a music class, before going to support his son from the sidelines of a soccer game. The Ted Lasso star, 47 – who recently said a potential fourth season could take place in Australia – kept it casual in a red Kansas City Chiefs sweatshirt, gray shorts and a black 'Summer Break' baseball cap. Sudeikis seemed to be enjoying himself as he got some one-one-one time with son Otis, nine, and daughter Daisy, six, before Mother's Day. The funnyman is currently in the middle of a bitter custody battle with his ex Olivia Wilde, 39, but the co-parents are united on another legal front – the wrongful termination lawsuit brought by their former nanny. The former couple recently put on a friendly display at another soccer game as they both flashed smiles and embraced on the sidelines before watching their son. The amicable outing came shortly after Jason and Olivia claimed in new legal documents, per TMZ, that their former nanny, Ericka Gernaro, did not file her wrongful termination lawsuit correctly in California as a civil lawsuit. They further claim that the lawsuit should have been filed in the state of New York as a private arbitration. The former couple informed TMZ in a statement published on Thursday that, 'It is unfortunate that this private matter continues to play out in the press.' 'Our focus has been and will continue to be to steadfastly protect our family in the face of harassment of any kind. We are confident that the evidence brought forward will affirm our position to summarily dismiss this case and bring our family peace.' Ericka, who had worked for the Hollywood stars from 2018 until 2021, claimed earlier this year in February that she was fired after asking for a three day medical leave due to the stress of the job. However, both Jason and Olivia allege that she was not fired, but that she actually resigned. The former couple says that nanny Ericka Genaro had her salary doubled in 2020 and that she was 'taken care of by the family.' In one instance, they say that they paid for her and her dog to stay in London's Rosewood Hotel, after she left her job. The final bill came for over $22,000 thanks in-part to food and booze room service. They further claim that travel expenses of around $17,000 for Ericka to move from London to the United States was also reimbursed. They also allege that Genaro was in breach of her working agreement by going to the media about the couple's intimate problems as well as lying about her criminal record. They are quoted as saying that Genaro has described herself as 'ruthless.' The TMZ report says that Sudeikis and his former fiancée allege that Genaro only began to have issues with her job when she demanded a tax-free pay raise. Genaro previously claimed to DailyMail.com how the Horrible Bosses star would text her about his alleged concerns as Olivia Wilde began seeing Harry Styles more often, before bringing Genaro on a trip to London. But the former celebrity couple quickly hit back at Genaro's claims, calling them 'false and scurrilous.'
