Olivia Wilde, Jason Sudeikis condemn nanny’s allegations as ‘false and scurrilous’ Olivia Wilde claims an ex-nanny has accused her of abusing their 10 children.
An ex-nanny with allegations that the former “Full House” star had physically abused their 10 children has filed a lawsuit against Olivia Wilde.
In the lawsuit, filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Kimberly S. Phillips of Huntington Beach claims she and the former “Full House” star have been “frequently” “physically and verbally abused and humiliated” by seven of the children, who are now all adults.
The lawsuit also alleges that Phillips was subject to “unbearable harassment by Wilde and by her staff members.”
Wilde on Monday released a statement denying the allegations.
“The story is false and scurrilous, and has been concocted by the former nanny to make herself famous and garner publicity for her past unbecoming behavior,” Wilde said in the statement.
“I categorically deny any and all allegations of physical or verbal abuse. Nor did I ever mistreat, physically or verbally abuse, or harass anyone. As soon as I became aware that any of our children were suffering any sort of mental distress, I took immediate action to address it, which is exactly what a sane, compassionate parent would do under similar circumstances,” she said.
“I, and all of our children, strongly deny these accusations and look forward to being vindicated, and fully vindicated, at a trial in a court of law,” the statement continued.
The former “Full House” star’s rep didn’t immediately return a request for comment.
