Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy's Relationship Timeline As Actress Files for Emergency Divorce

Mary-Kate Olsen has filed for divorce from her husband Olivier Sarkozy after five years of marriage.

Documents obtained by TMZ state that the actress, 33, began the process in April but her request could not be completed due to the coronavirus outbreak in New York. Now she's requesting an emergency order to allow her to file for divorce. A spokesperson for Olsen has been contacted for comment.

The couple started dating in 2012 before tying the knot in 2015. French banker Sarkozy is aged 50—17 years Olsen's senior.

Olsen and Sarkozy's relationship has been the subject of gossip and criticism, with Sarkozy's first wife Charlotte Bernard once branding his union with the former child star "grotesque."

Sarkozy's half-brother is Nicolas Sarkozy, the former president of France.

Since leaving the world of acting, Olsen and her twin sister Ashley have become deeply private, and the fashion designers now famously shun the limelight.
