“He’s still touring and is now going abroad. She is focusing on her kids and her work in L.A.,” a source confirmed to People, who first reported the split on Friday, November 18. “They’re still very close friends,” they added, adding that the split was an “amicable decision.”
After the drama that surrounded the premiere of Harry and Olivia’s joint film effort earlier this year, we can safely say that our own worry about this celebrity couple was for good reason.
Explaining the Don’t Worry Darling Drama
During the premiere of Don’t Worry Darling at the Venice Film Festival in September 2022, things got … pretty tense (an understatement). After weeks of rumored drama between Olivia, who directed and starred in the film, and the movie’s main star Florence Pugh, the tension on the red carpet was palpable.
In an interview published just days before the Venice premiere, Olivia claimed to have fired Shia LaBeouf, who originally had Harry’s role of Jack, from the film over concerns about his acting style and because she wanted to keep the set “safe.” Shia rebutted the director’s claims publicly and released texts he received from Olivia and a video message in which she seemed to beg Shia to return to the project and blamed Florence for the issues, calling her “Miss Flo” in the clip.
Did Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde Break Up?
Tension between Florence and Olivia was definitely felt throughout Venice (and the world) as Florence didn’t appear at the film’s press conference, but many fans felt that they weren’t the only two stars who were tense. Enter: Harry and Olivia breakup rumors.
Fans noticed that Harry and Olivia were separated throughout the entirety of the premiere and rarely spoke or looked at one another. While this might have been purposeful so as to not cause more drama, fans believe that it was a telling sign of a split. “Feel like Harry and Olivia’s lack of interaction is getting lost here, they for sure broke up right?!” wrote one fan on Twitter.
However, the pair were spotted leaving an afterparty for their film in New York City on September 19, and video showed them leaving in the same car. Additionally, Olivia was spotted supporting Harry at his 15th night playing Madison Square Garden on September 21. Neither Harry nor Olivia have publicly addressed the current status of their relationship.
Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde’s Relationship Timeline
Harry and Olivia stirred up romance rumors shortly after the wrap of Don’t Worry Darling in January 2021. Although they have not publicly spoken on about their relationship, nor how it formed on set, the pair have since been spotted multiple times together.
“It’s obviously really tempting to correct a false narrative,” Olivia told Vogue in December 2021, seemingly about their romance. “But I think what you realize is that when you’re really happy, it doesn’t matter what strangers think about you. All that matters to you is what’s real, and what you love, and who you love.”
Olivia spoke about the gossip surrounding their relationship in a September 2022 interview with Vanity Fair. “The complete horsesh-t idea that I left Jason [Sudeikis] for Harry is completely inaccurate,” she said of her ex-fiancé. “Our relationship was over long before I met Harry.”
