Mary-Kate Olsen is divorcing husband Olivier Sarkozy after five years of marriage.
The former actress is seeking to end the marriage through an emergency order, claiming that she attempted to file for divorce on the 17th of April, but was unable to do so due to the ongoing pandemic. She also requests that their prenuptial agreement be enforced.
Olsen revealed that she wants the divorce to be filed as soon as possible, because she claims Olivier is trying kick her out of their New York City apartment. She alleges he terminated the lease without her knowledge, and the only way to prevent Olivier from getting rid of her belongings is to file for divorce.
Her request for an emergency order marks the end of her nearly eight year romance with the French banker. The star began dating Sarkozy in spring 2012, just two years after he divorced his wife Charlotte Bernard.
Three years later they wed in an intimate ceremony in Manhattan, while surrounded by 50 of their closest family and friends.
It’s unclear what caused the pair’s abrupt split but a source shared that Mary-Kate and Olivier have very different perspectives on life, drawing on their 17-year age difference.
“Mary-Kate is just 27 but comes across as a lot, lot younger. She’s clearly very excited about the chance to get married to a very successful, well-educated man, but life isn’t always that simple. He’s already got kids and is very happy with his status in life.”
