When Mary-Kate Olsen filed for divorce earlier this month, she expected it to remain private as usual.
However, legal shutdowns in response to the coronavirus pandemic have led to their divorce petitions being published, according to new reports on page 6.
Although sensitive legal documents are routinely sealed, the closure of the New York State Supreme Court resulted in the 33-year-old fashion designer’s petition going into an electronic filing system where it was open to the public.

The very private Olsen found the divorce from French banker Olivier Sarkozy (50) “extremely difficult”, according to a fashion insider she had previously worked with.
According to sources familiar with her marriage, Sarkozy unilaterally ended her and “petrified” her because she was briefly evicted from her New York City home.
Sarkozy, the half brother of former French President Nicolas Sarkozy, has also reportedly ended the lease on her apartment in Gramercy Park, for which they pay $ 29,000 a month.
“My husband expects me to move out of our house [May 18] In the middle of New York City paused for COVID-19, ”she wrote in her court files, although the judge who oversaw the files decided that it wasn’t enough emergency to proceed immediately.

Since then, Olsen has moved to Tony Hamptons in New York State, where she and her twin sister Ashley Olsen, who alternated with her at full house appearances and appeared in a variety of direct-to-video films, rented 325,000 US films spent the night in children’s films in the 1990s.
“Mary-Kate is okay,” said one of her fashion connections. “But it wouldn’t have been her decision to end a marriage and move during a pandemic.”
Others warned that Olsen’s divorce could become much messier if the New York courts reopened.
‘[Olivier] seems to be a funny guy when you meet him, but he’s a shark. Very tough, ”revealed a source near Sarkozy, who works in Paris. “He is not someone you want to compete with. His divorce from [his first wife] got very messy for a while and they really went after each other. Don’t underestimate him when Mary-Kate is doing badly. ”

It has recently been reported that Sarkozy wanted his wife to override her fashion projects to be more of a mother at home, which she doesn’t care about.
A person who knew the couple through their ties to New York society said Sarkozy had “completely changed” from his wife.
“Even his view of marriage had changed, which surprised people they knew,” they said.
One possible factor that led to the separation was Olsen’s reported desire to have children of her own, although the same fashion source denied that she ever felt that way.

“I’m not so sure about that. I only know that Mary-Kate loves Olivier’s children,” they said.
Both parties are wealthy independently, and Olsen’s assets have been described by a friend of the couple as comparable to Sarkozy’s, even though they had signed a marriage agreement before entering into a covenant.
He did the same with his first wife Charlotte Bernard, whom he married in 1997, although the two reportedly had argued over the preparations during their divorce proceedings in 2011.
“He sees himself as an alpha man,” continued the Paris source. “He becomes even more French when he fights her. They can get cold to their wives very quickly when the relationship is over. ‘
