THINGS were already frosty between Olivia Wilde and Florence Pugh.
He then started dating Olivia, who directed the film and Florence wasn’t happy.
The news of Harry and Olivia’s split following almost two years together came as a shock to their nearest and dearest, who believed their romance was going from strength to strength.
In recent weeks they had been discussing plans for Olivia to move to London to be closer to Harry and had looked at local schools to send her two children.

Now she is planning to stay in Los Angeles, near her actor ex and the kids’ dad, Jason Sudeikis.
A source said: “They had been making it work for ages so everyone who knows Harry and Olivia are really surprised.
“She had been doing one hell of a juggling act to spend so much time with him on tour and despite everything else going on, they seemed to be really happy.
“There is no bad blood between them but because they are in different parts of the world so much, it is difficult to spend as much time together as they may like.

“They’ve decided to take a break but they are still in contact.”
There were plenty of other stars for Olivia and Florence to chat to at Saturday’s awards.
Those who know Harry and Olivia insist they are still very close, she was at his live show in the US last Tuesday.
And they are hopeful that they could reconcile once his busy touring schedule eases next year.
I’d be very surprised if these two aren’t able to sort things out.
PALOMA Faith has enlisted some pop heavyweights after getting in the studio to work on her first album in two years.
I’m told she is hoping to crack the States with her next record so has flown over two hit songwriters to London to work with her on the project.
The singer, whose hits include Changes, Picking Up The Pieces and New York, is writing and recording with Claude Kelly and Chuck Harmony.
Paloma’s most recent album, Infinite Things, featured the singles Better Than This and Gold and became her fifth top ten record when it went to No4 in 2020.
A music insider said: “Paloma has been back in the studio for the last few months working on a new album.
“She is taking her time with it and collaborating with some major writers to make it her best yet.
“Paloma only recently split from her long-term partner so a lot of emotions will be feeding into the songs.
“But she also has this renewed drive for music. And given her success in the US TV series Pennyworth, more people know her in America and she is hoping her songs can cross over.”
JAMIE T had an indie reunion on stage at London’s Alexandra Palace when he brought out Maccabees guitarist Hugo White for his encore.
They performed signature hits Sticks ’n’ Stones and Zombie. Friday’s set included tracks from July album Theory Of Whatever and was a great warm-up for his 45,000-capacity headline show in the capital’s Finsbury Park next June.
One act which may not be too chuffed to hear Jamie is back on the road though are Mumford & Sons, after it was revealed his guitarist Chris Woodhead had nicked his instrument from the band. He declared:
“You’re not getting it back, b*****s!”
They still have a stash of banjos.

He is documenting his life for the page and had his camera out for the festive launch event for Lego’s store in London’s Leicester Square, left.

CAUGHT LIVE – O2 ARENA
WES Nelson put on a headline-worthy show supporting N-Dubz on their nationwide tour.
He commanded attention with a sharp set and treated fans to his catchy single Nice To Meet Ya, along with his Clean Bandit collaboration Drive.
Wes also talked about the importance of mental health before performing latest release 3 Words (Message To My Ex).
His message got a huge reaction from the sold-out crowd and he will certainly have picked up new fans.
He may have started out on Love Island but Wes is more than proving himself as a serious recording artist and I reckon it won’t be too long until he is selling out his own solo shows.
LIZZO says she used to have to get drunk to find the courage to perform.
The seemingly super confident About Damn Time singer completed the US leg of her Special tour on Saturday and managed to get through all the string of 28 shows without relying on booze, which she sees as “growth”.
