Mary-Kate Olsen And Her Much Older Husband Olivier Sarkozy Divorce After 5 Years
Mary-Kate Olsen and Pierre Olivier Sarkozy's relationship is officially over, and it appears to have deteriorated dramatically. The New York Post's Page Six picked up on court documents that allege that Mary-Kate is being kicked out of his New York City apartment in the middle of a pandemic.
The court documents claim that Mary-Kate is unhappy with the way she's been treated amid the coronavirus pandemic, which has resulted in the biggest economic downturn since the Great Depression. Her marital collapse started in earnest last month.
Mary-Kate Olsen signed a summons and complaint notice for divorce on the 17th of April and claimed it was "clear" their marriage was over. She claimed their relationship was beyond repair, however, at the time, the New York Supreme Court was not accepting filings for separation.
Mary-Kate, who married the 50-year-old Sarkozy back in 2015, asked the court to allow her to file an emergency divorce petition, stating that her husband terminated the lease on their Big Apple apartment without her permission.
Mary-Kate added in the court docs that her husband expects her to move out on the 18th of May, 2020, at a time when the city is shut down on account of COVID-19. Furthermore, Mary-Kate says she reached out to her husband's attorney and asked to stay past the 30th of May.
In her filings, Mary-Kate says she's fearful of her situation right now because she may not only lose her home but also much of her personal property. To add insult to injury, Mary-Kate can't look for another place to live because of the city-wide shut-down.
The announcement of their marriage's dissolution hasn't come as a surprise to many social media users, who, from the beginning, expressed their indignation over the age gap between them. Three years ago in 2017, Brandon Fitch reported that Mary-Kate and Sarkozy confirmed their secret marriage that occurred two years prior.
Sarkozy is the half-brother of the French president, Nicolas Sarkozy. Mary-Kate and Pierre have been seeing each other since 2012. For the last 8 years, both parties have kept their romance under wraps.
