Mary-Kate Olsen divorces husband Olivier Sarkozy as she claims he’s trying to ‘force her out’ – The Sun
MARY-KATE Olsen has filed for divorce from her husband, Pierre Olivier Sarkozy, The Sun has confirmed.
The former teen star turned fashion designer filed for divorce on April 17, but New York courts were only accepting emergency divorce filings due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Mary-Kate has claimed that her estranged husband is forcing her out of their home.
He gave her the deadline of May 18 to remove all of her belongings from their NYC apartment.
She has also claimed that he terminated their lease without informing her, and so Mary-Kate is requesting an emergency divorce order.
Documents obtained by TMZ allege that Mary-Kate can't meet the deadline "because of quarantine guidelines" and she is requesting an extension until May 30, accusing him and his lawyers of failing to respond.
The star has reportedly included her divorce petition in the filing – which allegedly prove she has requested their prenuptial agreement be enforced.
She alleged that she can only "protect her property is if she's to file a divorce petition" and "that would trigger an automatic court order preventing him from disposing of her property."
The 33-year-old married Olivier, 50, in 2015.
Olivier Sarkozy is a French banker based in the US (Although he went to university in the UK, where he studied Medieval History at the University of St Andrews).
Readers may remember his half-brother, Nicolas Sarkozy, who served as the French president from 2007 to 2012.
They began their romance in 2012 and the pair wed on November 27, 2015, at a private residence in New York City.
The divorce comes amid a report from The Sun that the twins are being sued by the former president of their fashion company, The Row, who was once Ashley's boyfriend.
David Schulte filed a lawsuit against the child stars-turned-designers in court in March, five months after he abruptly departed from his post.
The nature of the suit is unclear due to the fact that David filed his lawsuit under seal.
David is also Ashley's ex-boyfriend, but the two had split two years before he was appointed president of the fashion empire.
The Olsen twins launched The Row in 2006, and 14 years later are still managing to turn a profit from their high-priced luxury wares.
Mary-Kate and Ashley have been heralded by the fashion elite for their work, and have won five Council of Fashion Designer of America Awards.
These include the prize for best womenswear in 2012 and 2015.
It is unclear just how much The Row makes, though WWD estimated the company was doing $50 million in sales annually back in 2015.
