Although she has spent a significant amount of time out of the limelight, Mary-Kate Olsen is now making headlines after a judge denied her request for an emergency divorce from husband Olivier Sarkozy. According to Cosmopolitan, May-Kate recently split from her husband of five years and is worried he is going to “deprive [her] of the home [they] have lived in.” She says that if he is successful, she will not only lose her home, but she also risks losing her personal property as well.
In her filing, Mary-Kate stated that she is “gravely concerned that my husband will dissipate, dispose of and/or secret not only my separate property belongings but also our marital property belongings that are in the Gramercy Apartment…My husband is trying to force me out of our home by his failure to renew the lease on the Gramercy Apartment, which he terminated without my consent.” Unfortunately, Mary-Kate’s request for an emergency divorce was denied by a New York Judge.
The source cited that the divorce filing “did not rise to the level of a true emergency” which means the actress will need to “find a way to move her belongings and find a new place to live ASAP.” Courts in New York and Alabama began limiting the types of cases it would accept weeks ago in an effort to help curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. Because the judge did not view Mary-Kate’s reason for filing for divorce as one that required immediate attention from the courts, she will likely have to wait a little longer until she can get a judge to grant her a divorce.
