The 4 ½ year marriage of Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy is over — and their divorce is getting complicated due to the coronavirus pandemic. Apparently, divorce filings are nonessential services. Us Weekly confirmed that Olsen, the 33-year-old fashion designer, signed a petition for divorce on April 17, but New York City courts are not currently accepting divorce filings due to the COVID-19 crisis. As a result, Olsen is seeking an emergency order to allow her to file the legal paperwork to end her marriage. Olsen and Sarkozy, age 50, started dating in 2012 and were married in November 2015.
According to TMZ, the French banker and half-brother of the former French president, emailed Olsen's lawyers a deadline for her to move out of their New York City apartment. Olsen claims that Sarkozy is forcing her out by May 18 because he terminated their lease without her knowledge. As a result, the former child star is seeking an extension, hoping to have until May 30 to move out, but claims Sarkozy has not responded to her. Olsen is also worried about moving because of the city's quarantine guidelines. Rumor has it, Olsen can stop Sarkozy from disposing of her property if she obtains a divorce petition. That would trigger an automatic court order preventing him from disposing of her property. Olsen is also requesting for their prenuptial agreement be enforced. Thanks for visiting PennLive.
