Mary-Kate Olsen filed for divorce from her husband Olivier Sarkozy after being married for six years.
Multiple outlets reported that the former actress and now fashion mogul sought to end her marriage to Olivier, a French banker, via an emergency order. According to the court documents, it was on April 17 that she first attempted to file for divorce but failed to do so because of the coronavirus pandemic. Further, she requested for the enforcement of their prenuptial agreement.
Mary-Kate revealed that she wanted to file the divorce sooner instead of later because she claimed that her husband is trying to kick her out of their apartment in New York City. She allegedly said that Olivier terminated their lease without telling her and filing for divorce is the only way to stop him from getting rid of her belongings from their apartment.
She requested an emergency order and this action marked the end of her romance with Olivier which has lasted for almost eight years. They started dating in 2012 only two years after the Frenchman split from his wife Charlotte Bernard. In 2015, the couple got married in an intimate wedding ceremony in Manhattan with 50 of their closest family and friends.
It’s not yet clear what caused this problem but a source shared previously that they have different perspectives on life. Mary-Kate is very young and being married to a successful and educated man excited her. Meanwhile, Olivier already has kids and is divorced.
The Olsen twins are known for being private after leaving show business but Mary-Kate and Olivier, who is 17 years older than her, would often watch games for the New York Knicks. They would often go on double dates with Ashley and her boyfriend.- Advertisement -
One of the recent sightings of them together was when Olivier and her teenage daughter joined the twins during the celebration of their 33rd birthday. They had dinner where the twins got to wear tiaras.
During her sister’s “ugly” divorce, Ashley proved to be the best twin and sister there is. Mary-Kate has left their home in New York City to be with Ashley and some friends outside the city.
As reported earlier, reality TV star Kristin Cavallari, 33, and former American football quarterback Jay Cutler, 36, announced their split after ten years of togetherness.
