Mary-Kate Olsen Formally Information for Divorce From Olivier Sarkozy

UPDATEMary-Kate Olsen just took a big step in her divorce process.

E! News can confirm the fashion designer and her attorneys filed a summons and complaint, which were accepted and processed by the Manhattan County clerk Monday morning. 

New York’s Office of Court Administration lifted an eight-week Coronavirus moratorium on all criminal and civil court proceedings not deemed to be essential or an emergency. As a result, Mary-Kate and her legal team were able to proceed.


Mary-Kate Olsen‘s request to submit an emergency divorce filing has been denied. 

New York courts spokesman Lucian Chalfen confirmed the setback, telling E! News that only “essential, emergency” filings are being accepted because of the coronavirus pandemic. 

Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Michael Katz ruled Thursday that Olsen’s emergency petition to begin divorce proceedings against Olivier Sarkozy would not move forward.

“The original filing was rejected by the New York County Clerk because they did not follow the essential matter procedure,” Chalfen tells us. “They refiled under the essential matter procedure and the matter was referred to the ex-party State Supreme Court Judge. He just decided that it is not an essential matter so they can’t file anything at this point.”

On Wednesday, May 13, the former child star filed documents that claimed she had initially attempted to file for divorce a month prior, but was unable to because of restrictions put in place following the COVID-19 outbreak.

“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,” she stated, according to the outlet. 

Meanwhile, a source told E! News that the dynamic between Mary-Kate and Olivier has become acrimonious. 

“It’s gotten very ugly between them,” our insider shared. “She’s done with the drama.” 

For now, we’re told Mary-Kate is spending time with twin sister Ashley Olsen and their friends outside of New York City. 

Mary-Kate, who has unsurprisingly not commented on the split news, married the French baker in 2015 after three years together.
