Olivia Wilde found herself in some hot water. Rihanna fans have been calling out the actress after she commented that the Super Bowl performer’s partner A$AP Rocky was “hot.” Accused of overstepping, the Don’t Worry Darling actor and director is now providing some context to her statement.
Wilde reposted a video of the rapper at the 2023 Super Bowl as he watched and excitedly recorded the mother of his son, Rihanna, perform during the Halftime Show and simultaneously reveal that she’s pregnant with their second child.
“If I thought he was hot before, this really put me over the edge,” Wilde wrote on her Instagram Stories. After fans expressed they felt the comment was inappropriate, Wilde removed the post and replaced it with another, clarifying, “For anyone who got it twisted 🙄…It’s hot to respect your partner. Especially when your partner just did THAAAAAAT.”
Wilde is currently single, following her split from musician Harry Styles last November after almost two years together. A source told People, that the “As It Was” singer, 28, and the Book Smart director, 38, are “taking a break,” due to “different priorities that are keeping them apart.”
Wilde started a relationship with the leading man of her film Don’t Worry Darling after leaving her partner of nine years, Jason Sudeikis. Wilde shares her two children with the Ted Lasso star, Otis, 8, and Daisy, 5.
Wilde and Styles sparked romance rumors shortly after filming began, leading onlookers to suspect that their relationships with the two men overlapped.
“The complete horses**t idea that I left Jason for Harry is completely inaccurate,” Wilde told Vanity Fair. “Our relationship was over long before I met Harry. Like any relationship that ends, it doesn’t end overnight. Unfortunately, Jason and I had a very bumpy road, and we officially dissolved the relationship towards the beginning of the pandemic. We were raising two kids during lockdown, so we co-parented through that time. Once it became clear that cohabitating was no longer beneficial for the children, it became the responsible thing to not, because we could be better parents as friends who live in different houses.”
