Mary-Kate Olsen’s Divorce

Mary-Kate Olsen is divorcing Olivier Sarkozy. However, the virus complicated her attempts to keep her privacy. And the papers, which were filed on May 14, went into an e-filing system.

And, when New York Supreme Courts closed, they weren’t sealed automatically.

Olsen, 33, requested an emergency divorce petition. And this was because she was concerned about her husband forcing her out of her home during a pandemic. 

Olsen’s court documents state: ‘my husband expects me to move out of our home on (May 18) in the middle of New York City being on pause due to COVID-19”. A judge, however, decided that the filing wasn’t an essential matter, and that it could be postponed.

The matter, however, may be settled soon with the reopening of courts. Sarkozy is the half-brother of former French President Nicholas Sarkozy. What’s more; he’s now the Managing Partner/Founder of Further Global Capital Management LP.

‘The Row’ is a label founded by Mary-Kate, and her twin sister Ashley, in 2006.

As well as anything with value, such as: bank accounts and cash, security deposits on apartments, pension plans, 401 (k) plans, stocks, life insurance with cash value, a business/patent
