Marry petitioned a New York court for an emergency divorce from estranged husband Olivier Sarkozy. On Thursday, a Manhattan judge denied Mary-Kate Olsen’s request, ruling it wasn’t an essential matter. The former Full House star had claimed her 50-year-old husband is kicking her out of the apartment. They share in the city, giving her only until Monday to find a new home amid the coronavirus lockdown.
She explained that Sarkozy, whom she married in 2015, had terminated the lease on their shared house without her consent. In her petition filed Wednesday, Mary-Kate stated “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”.
In her divorce papers, Mary-Kate asked the court to uphold the terms of the prenup she and Sarkozy signed. She is seeking the continued use of their home in the Hamptons home. Their apartment in New York’s Gramercy neighborhood and an apartment on East 49th Street apartment in the city. She is also requesting that her ex continue to provide her with health and dental insurance.
Mary-Kate first submitted her divorce petition on April 17. Stating that her marriage had irretrievably broken down. But, the fashion designer and avid equestrienne told. That New York City courts are not accepting divorce petitions during the COVID-19 pandemic. That has to date taken the lives of more than 21,000 New Yorkers.
She had then filed a request for an emergency order for the divorce papers to accepted. And for the court to proceed with her petition. Adding that she and Sarkozy had separated ‘for at least six months.
Marry had explained that she is unable to look for another apartment right now. Let alone retrieve my separate property belongings. And I am gravely concerned that my husband will dissipate dispose of and secret.
