Mary-Kate Olsen & Olivier Sarkozy Split

Mary-Kate Olsen & Olivier Sarkozy Split

Actress-turned-fashion designer Mary-Kate Olsen, 33, and her banker husband Olivier Sarkozy, 50, have reportedly called it quits after nearly five years of marriage.

According to TMZ, Mary-Kate has requested an emergency order to speed up her divorce filing. She reportedly signed a petition for divorce in April, but was told that filings were not being accepted by New York courts, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The site reported that Olsen’s attorneys received an email from Sarkozy, who gave her a May 18 deadline to remove her belongings from their NYC apartment.

Olsen claims she’s being forced out since Sarkozy terminated the lease without her knowledge.

In the court papers, Mary-Kate is asking for a May 30 deadline, due to pandemic guidelines imposed on the city. She argues that she can only protect her belongings if she files a divorce petition, which will prevent him from disposing of them.

Olsen is also requesting that their prenuptial agreement be enforced.

They were last seen together in November, with her twin sister Ashley and Louis Eisner.

The pair tied the knot in the winter of 2015 in an intimate ceremony in NYC.

In happier times, Olsen told Net-a-Porter’s The Edit, "I have a husband [Olivier Sarkozy], two step-kids, and a life; I have to go home and cook dinner. I ride horses on the weekends. You find the thing that helps you relax and if you don’t have it, you have to look for it. Or you get burned out and then you’re not productive.”

Mary-Kate and Olivier started dating in 2012, a year after his divorce from Charlotte Bernard was finalized.
