The former nanny of Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde has filed a lawsuit against them for wrongful termination, alleging that she was fired due to her mental illness. Ericka Genaro, who began working for the ex-couple in 2018, filed a lawsuit on Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court.
In the complaint PEOPLE acquired, Genaro describes the allegedly “unbearable” anxiety and stress she experienced while raising the couple’s two children, son Otis, 8, and daughter Daisy, 5, after Wilde moved out around November 2020.
The complaint claims that Wilde’s abrupt departure “hurt the emotional state of the home, including Sudeikis dependent on the presence of [Genaro] for comfort.
A Wilde spokesman declined to comment when contacted by PEOPLE. A representative for Sudeikis pointed to the ex-October couple’s 2022 denial of the allegations.
They have said as parents that it is fairly depressing to learn that the former nanny of their two young children would chose to publicly make such false and scurrilous accusations about us. After 18 months, her horrific campaign of tormenting us, our family, close friends, and coworkers, has tragically ended.

“We will continue to focus on raising and protecting our children with the sincere hope that she will now choose to leave our family alone.”
After the kids went to bed, Sudeikis, 47, allegedly asked Genaro to “stay up late to talk,” saying that the conversation “naturally progressed to speaking about Wilde.” According to the former nanny, these chats gave her “great anxiety” because she “felt she had to ‘choose sides,’” according to Sudeikis and Wilde, 38.
The complaint claims that Genaro’s presence in the kids’ lives “grew tremendously.” The strain of Genaro taking care of the kids on his own and covering for Wilde while he was away for the kids “grew debilitating.” In Palm Springs, California, Genaro allegedly met with Wilde to address “feeling nervous and stressed with the situation at home.”
Genaro said she felt a “genuine sense of relief and comradery” with Wilde. Still, he claimed that about a month later, Sudeikis told Genaro that the actress “shared with him the entire conversation.”
According to Genaro, her “worry and stress did not get any better” as the news of Sudeikis and Wilde’s breakup spread via the media. According to the complaint, Sudeikis and Wilde eventually went to group therapy with Genaro after realizing the “emotional toll” of the circumstance
According to Genaro, the osteopath was seen for her “physical pain, worry, and stress.” She said that her osteopath, sometimes known as a “stress leave,” advised her to take a “three-day medical leave of absence because of her mental health.”
According to the complaint, “Sudeikis terminated [Genaro] on the spot when [Genaro] stated she is under the osteopath’s orders to not speak with anyone because of her nervousness.”
