American fashion designer and former actress, Mary-Kate Olsen, has filed an emergency order to divorce her husband Olivier Sarkozy after five years of marriage.
According to court documents obtained by TMZ, the 33-year-old fashion mogul filed for the emergency order this week after she initially signed a petition to divorce the 50-year-old French banker on April 17, 2020, but was unable to file it because courts were not accepting non-emergency filings due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
She’s now requesting an emergency order that would allow her to file for divorce after Olivier terminated their lease without her knowledge and has requested she remove her belongings from the home by May 18.
A source told E! News: “It’s gotten very ugly between them,” the insider reveals of Mary-Kate and Olivier’s current dynamic. It’s become a “heated divorce,” the source adds. “She’s done with constant drama.”
The former child star, 33, and her twin Ashley Olsen are worth an estimated $250million (£205million) each but her fortune is “protected” now she’s split from her husband, it’s claimed.
Another source disclosed that Mary-Kate has an ‘ironclad prenup’ in place and the prenuptial agreement ensures that ‘her business interests and fortune are protected’
‘Her business interests and fortune are protected’ said the insider in reference to Olsen’s successful The Row line and her substantial net worth.
It was also reported that Mary-Kate, who has asked that their prenuptial agreement be enforced, has moved out from the couple’s Big Apple home and is now spending time with her identical twin sister.
Mary-Kate and Oliver, who both started dating in 2012, got married in 2015 in an intimate wedding ceremony.
Olivier is the half-brother of former President of France, Nicolas Sarkozy.
