A Manhattan Judge Shot Down Mary-Kate Olsen’s Emergency Request To Process Her Divorce Filing
In 1995, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen filmed the classic (and shameless rip-off of The Parent Trap) twin-switching film, It Takes Two. But unlike the title of that movie, it would only take one person to approve Mary-Kate’s emergency divorce from her husband of five years, Olivier Sarkozy. That one person was a New York City judge, who reportedly took one look at Mary-Kate’s emergency request and took two seconds to determine that no, her divorce request was not an emergency situation.
Mary-Kate filed for divorce from Olivier one month ago in New York City, but nothing was happening, due to the COVID-19 pandemic shutting down most offices, including those that process divorce papers. Recently, she filed an emergency petition requesting that her divorce filing be processed ASAP, due to the fact that Olivier had allegedly ended the lease on their apartment and was trying to kick her out by May 18th. By having her divorce papers processed immediately, it would also officially enforce the prenup she made Olivier sign when they got married back in 2015, thus protecting her estimated $250 million net worth.
Page Six says that Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Michael Katz made the decision yesterday. And according to Judge Katz, Mary-Kate’s situation, while messy, is not as much of an emergency as she thinks it is. Judge Katz denied her request. Cue the Full House sad scene music.
Mary-Kate was also reportedly afraid that unless her divorce papers were processed right away, Olivier might try some shady shit with their home in the Hamptons or her dental insurance. via Page Six:
Olsen also sought to be able to continue to use the couple’s Hamptons home, their Gramercy apartment and another East 49th Street apartment. She also wanted a judge to uphold the terms of their prenup and order Sarkozy to keep providing her with health and dental insurance.
Did Judge Katz not see the part where Mary-Kate says she needs Olivier’s health insurance? Judge Katz, she needs that health insurance! She smokes 1,900 cigarettes a day! That’s like eighteen times her body weight in nicotine! If not for her housing situation, PLEASE grant that emergency for her poor lungs alone.
As for how Mary-Kate and Olivier ended up in the south end of Divorcetown, a source tells People magazine that it had everything to do with Mary-Kate being a busy business woman.
“She’s super career focused and he’s very French and wanted her to be more available,” the source tells People. “You can’t control a girl who has been on the billionaire track since her 20s.”
Did Olivier Sarkozy think he was getting into a real-life Billboard Dad situation, on the hunt for some ideal step-mom to bake cookies for his kids and have his French cuffs lightly starched after every ironing? Sorry, Olivier, you married the type of woman who turns crocodiles into $39,000 backpacks, you knew this.
It’s not known if Olivier will ease up on Mary-Kate’s move-out date. But time is ticking. Olivier reportedly gave Mary-Kate until Monday to get out. Well, today is Friday, and no extension was granted. Mary-Kate might want to start looking at U-Haul rentals. She should probably start right now, to be honest. Because after she secures a truck, she’ll need to figure out with Ashley which of them will steer while the other works the gas and brake pedals.
