Mary-Kate Olsen Finally Files For Divorce As Courts Reopen And My Heart Is A Full Houseby By Matt Galea
Gemini season has given our Gemini queen Mary-Kate Olsen a reprieve as she’s finally been granted that divorce she’s been wanting from husband Olivier Sarkozy.
Last month, the fashion mogul requested an emergency divorce as she feared that her banker husband was going to evict her from their New York home.
In documents obtained by TMZ, Olsen alleged the only way she could protect her belongings is by seeking a divorce. She initially signed a petition for divorce on April 17, but New York City courts were not accepting filings – apart from emergency filings – due to the pandemic.
“This application is an emergency because my husband expects me to move out of our home on Monday, May 18, 2020 in the middle of New York City being on pause due to COVID-19,” Olsen’s case said.
“I am petrified that my husband is trying to deprive me of the home we have lived in and if he is successful, I will not only lose my home but I risk losing my personal property as well,” the court papers went on.
Her request was later denied as the Manhattan Supreme Court didn’t deem it an essential matter, Page Six reports.
A new report also revealed that Olsen intended to keep their split a secret but her privacy was robbed from her when she was forced to file for the ill-fated emergency divorce, which went into an e-filing system — meaning they were not automatically sealed and the word got out.
For Mary-Kate, who cherishes privacy above everything, having her divorce go public has been “extremely difficult,” according to a fashion source who has worked with her.
Hopefully now Mary-Kate can find the peace she so desperately desires (and deserves).
