Who is Mary-Kate Olsen dating? All you need to know about Olivier Sarkozy divorce and her romantic history
Five years is a long time. In a piece of shocking news, Mary-Kate Olsen and her husband Olivier Sarkozy are reportedly ending their marriage with an emergency divorce.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, courts in New York City are not accepting divorce filings. But, the 33-year-old fashion designer seems to be a huge rush and according to Us Weekly, she is seeking an emergency order to file the legal paperwork after first signing a petition on April 17.
Several alleged reports say that Olsen wants the divorce after Sarkozy allegedly tried to kick her out of their home. According to a TMZ report, Olsen's attorneys got an email from Sarkozy's attorneys, giving her the deadline of May 18 to vacate their NYC apartment and he didn't budge even after she asked him for more time until May 30.
If the divorce petition is filed, it would have an immediate effect from the court preventing him from disposing off her property as it is a part of her prenuptial agreement.
Mary-Kate has an alleged combined net worth of $500 million with her twin sister, Ashley Olsen — who seems to have lent all her support to her in these difficult times. According to E! News, Mary-Kate has left the couple's Big Apple home to be with Ashley and a group of friends outside the city. An insider told the publication, "It's gotten very ugly between them. She's done with constant drama."
Back in 2013, a source told E! News that Olsen and Sarkozy had very different perspectives on life. “Mary-Kate is just 27 but comes across as a lot, lot younger,” said the source. “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.”
Could that mean Olsen is dating someone else or might be heading towards another relationship? There's a lot of hearsay on social media and one fan posted, "Why the divorce? Sarkozy saw Mary Kate as too silly, always kidding or giggling. OK, joke over (if you will). The Olsen twins are the two grimmest, most morose looking people anywhere. How could Sarkozy have stood dating Mary Kate, let alone marrying her?"
Many others feel the age-gap spelled trouble. "Why was Mary Kate Olsen dating a man 32 years older than her? Especially him? It’s a bit odd," one wrote and another said, "White folks got this bad habit of killing their spouses. And kids. So I think the Mary-Kate Olsen divorce should be an Emergency."
One sarcastic tweet even read, "If pictures are to be believed, Mary-Kate Olsen has been smirking and looking to the left for the past 17 years."
In 1987, she gained popularity after starring in 'Full House' and while she kept her relationships private, she has dated a string of stars in the past. In 2002, her first Hollywood relationship was with Henry Winkler’s son, Max Winkler. In April 2011, Winkler confirmed the relationship in an interview with New York magazine saying, “I dated an Olsen twin because I was in love with an Olsen twin. But I wasn’t in love with her because she was ‘an Olsen twin.’ I just thought she was so pretty and smart and cute.”
She dated David Katzenberg, the son of DreamWorks co-founder Jeffrey Katzenberg for a year, followed by photographer Maxwell Snow, and artist Nate Lowman in her early years. Not just that, she was also rumored to be dating the '10 Things I Hate About You' and 'The Dark Knight' star Heath Ledger in 2008 at the time of his death.
In May 2012, she sparked love with Sarkozy, who is the half brother of former French President Nicolas Sarkozy and they got hitched on November 27, 2015.
