Jason Sudeikis ‘feels safe’ with Keeley Hazell after Olivia Wilde split.
Jason Sudeikis rekindled his romance with former glamor model Keeley Hazell “because he feels safe with her,” following the anguish of his split with Olivia Wilde, according to sources.
Insiders say earlier this year the relationship between the former “Saturday Night Live” star and British model and actress Hazell had been more casual.
But after the couple were caught kissing on a beach in Cabos San Lucas, Mexico, earlier this week, a source says former British girl Hazell hopes to take her relationship with the 46-year-old “Ted Lasso” star to the next level.
The insider said: “Jason was and still is devastated by his split with Olivia; she is the mother of her children.
“But he has known Keeley for a long time and feels safe and relaxed with her. They enjoy each other’s company. ”
The source added that Sudeikis’ friends were initially unsure how long his relationship with Hazell would last, because he was not looking for anything serious after his split with Wilde, but are happy that he seems happy with Hazell.
“Keeley has really helped him get over his split with Olivia,” added the source.
He was seen putting his arms around the waist of Hazell, 39, in a bikini, as they kissed on the beach at the Mexican resort frequented by celebrities.
Their friendship goes back a long way: Hazell spent time with Sudeikis on the set of 2014’s “Horrible Bosses 2,” where she played Chris Pine’s assistant.
But insiders say that before that, they already knew each other through friends in Los Angeles.
Hazell can also be seen in some episodes of the Sudeikis’ Apple TV + hit “Ted Lasso” as Bex. The show even includes a character named after her: Keeley Jones, the model played by Juno Temple.
The source added: “Jason met Keeley through friends in Los Angeles. But now he lives in London, where of course he is filming ‘Ted Lasso.’ He is expected to return to the UK in early January to continue filming the show’s third season.
It has been a year since Sudeikis became single. Last November, he and the mother of his two sons, Wilde, broke off their seven-year engagement.
A few months later, sources in London confirmed to Page Six that Sudeikis had started reaching out to Hazell after news of Wilde’s affair with Harry Styles broke out.
