John Mulaney’s romance timeline with pregnant Olivia Munn questioned amid Anna Marie Tendler divorce

The timeline which John Mulaney recollected of his romance with pregnant girlfriend Olivia Munn is being questioned amid his divorce from Anna Marie Tendler.

The 39-year-old comedian recalled his eventful year from rehab for cocaine and alcohol abuse to divorce to new relationship during a surprise appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers on Tuesday.

Speaking to his pal and fellow SNL alum on Tuesday, Mulaney said: ‘I packed a lot into this… Is it September now? I went to rehab in September, I got out in October, I moved out of my home from my ex-wife.

‘Then in the spring I went to Los Angeles and met and started to date a wonderful woman named Olivia,’ he continued, adding he met her for the first time at Seth’s wedding in 2013.  She was the guest of fellow SNL star Will Forte.

Mulaney said although she was also right out of recovery when they started dating, she ‘held my hand through that hell that was his recovery.’ 

The New In Town star continued: ‘I got into this relationship that’s been really beautiful with someone incredible. And we’re having a baby together. I was nervous when I was about to say the news!

‘I’m gonna be a dad. I’m… we’re both really, really happy.’

There has been some skepticism on the validity of the order of events as a celebrity agent who has worked with Munn told Page Six on Thursday: ‘I don’t think it’s any coincidence that John broke the news of Olivia’s pregnancy the way he did in terms of basically giving a timeline of his past few months — when he moved out of his house, how it was the spring when he fell in love with Olivia.

He said, she said: As Mulaney had also claimed he moved out of his home with Tendler (they are seen together in December 2019) back in October after his first rehab stint, a source close to his ex told the publication that he had actually asked for a divorce in February

‘It seems to me that he is going to great lengths to dispute the idea that he cheated.

‘She has a demonstrated history of hanging out with and spending time with SNL guys, so no way did their paths not cross, and there is the video of them together back in 2017,’ 

As Mulaney had also claimed he moved out of his home with Tendler back in October after his first rehab stint, a source close to his ex told the publication that he had actually asked for a divorce in February.

It was  also claimed by People in May that Munn and Mulaney had met at church as the Tendler insider responded: ‘That was BS, and Twitter immediately called Olivia out on it, saying she’s known John for years.

‘It isn’t entirely clear when their relationship started. There have been rumors for months about her being pregnant, and it all just seems like a very tight timeline.’

'Then in the spring I went to Los Angeles and met and started to date a wonderful woman named Olivia,' he continued, adding he met her for the first time at Seth's wedding in 2013. She was the guest of fellow SNL star Will Forte

Page Six also claims they have sources who claimed Munn was talking openly about her pregnancy as early as July and so were Mulaney’s friends.

Their source clos to Tendler said: ‘Anna Marie knew he was doing things with other women before he went to rehab in December. And his claims to friends that he was trying to protect her before he went away to rehab were rubbish, she didn’t need protecting.

‘John was using Anna Marie to protect himself. But still, she was very heartbroken that he decided to end her marriage, she was heartbroken how it went down, it wasn’t something that she wanted, she wanted to work it out. I am sure this news about the pregnancy will be very difficult for her.’

Olivia also famously encouraged John to keep his chin up during rehab as she took to Twitter in December 2020 writing: ‘Sending SO MUCH love and support to John Mulaney. You got this.’

 Pregnancy rumors first ramped up when Munn was seen with a baby bump in Beverly Hills on Friday afternoon.

Tendler also reportedly entered rehab for ’emotional and eating’ disorders around the same time as her estranged ex.

Gossip columnist AJ Benza claimed on his podcast, Fame, Ain’t It A B***h, that textile artist Tendler, 35, went to therapy at Silver Hill in Connecticut.

A source then told Page Six: ‘Anna Marie was in rehab at Silver Hill for [emotional]… and eating disorders.’

They added that Tendler did not talk openly about her husband’s issues, stating: ‘She didn’t talk at all about that, we were all on our own journey of recovery. But it is clear she suffered during their marriage.’

Tendler is now said to be out of rehab and ‘doing better’, while ‘focusing on her art.’
