Mary-Kate Olsen enjoys a dinner date with Brightwire CEO John Cooper a month after officially divorcing Olivier Sarkozy
MARY-KATE Olsen enjoyed a dinner date with Brightwire CEO John Cooper in New York City a month after officially divorcing Olivier Sarkozy.
The star finalized her divorce after five years of marriage.
Mary-Kate, 34, seems ready to move on with her life as she was spotted on a Saturday night date with businessman and Brightwire founder, John Cooper.
The new couple met up with two friends for a double date at Estiatorio Milos, a restaurant in New York City.
Though it's unknown how long Mary-Kate and John have been getting to know each other, this was the first time the fashion mogul was spotted on a date since her divorce.
The former child star kept herself warm as she wore a black hat with matching black turtleneck, pants, and boots.
She also rocked a matching black face mask amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Once inside, Mary-Kate greeted the other couple and enjoyed a glass of white wine as she smiled on.
The couple arrived in an SUV and left the restaurant together a few hours later.
Back in January, Us Weekly confirmed that her divorce from Oliver was finalized on Monday, January 25 when the case was disposed by the New York Supreme Court.
The judge assigned to the case signed off on the exes' settlement agreement and granted their divorce to be finalized.
The news comes just two weeks after the pair virtually reunited to attend a 20 minute Zoom meeting to hash out the last details of their nasty split.
More than eight months after they announced they were going their separate ways, Mary-Kate and Olivier reached an agreement on January 13.
According to Us Weekly, the video conference call included the former couple, both of their attorneys and New York Judge Lori Sattler.
Olivier’s lawyer, Michael Mosberg, told the judge at the time: “So, we have reached a final agreement.
“And we appreciate the time and latitude that you’ve given us. … It’s been incremental, but we continue to make forward progress.
“We, as of this morning, reached the final agreement. We just need to revise that agreement, get it executed and get it to you, which we will have by the end of next week.
“But … the deal is now done."
The Full House star’s attorney, Nancy Chemtob, added: “We’ve been working very hard and we appreciate the court’s time and the adjournments.
“And we do have a settlement, and we will be able to get that signed and executed, as Mr. Mosberg said, by next week. All issues are resolved.”
Mary-Kate rose to fame while starring in TV shows and films alongside her twin sister Ashley Olsen.
She and Olivier wed on November 27, 2015, at a private residence in New York City.
The child star-turned-fashion designer initially filed for divorce in mid-April 2020.
She soon requested an emergency divorce order the following day as she alleged that her estranged husband was forcing her out of their home during the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic.
The former couple don't share any children together, though Oliver shares grown children Margot and Julien with ex-wife Charlotte Bernard.
Oliver and Charlotte were married from 1997-2011.
