According to yet another source from the banking world, the idea of having children wasn't the only topic coming between the couple.

Mary-Kate Olsen wanted a baby before Olivier Sarkozy's divorce.

Meanwhile, Olsen who runs two clothing brands, The Row and Elizabeth and James with her twin sister Ashley, is more reclusive.

Mary-Kate Olsen's preference for smaller gatherings lines up with the pair's nuptials back in 2015, which went viral at the time due to a, erm, vivid description by Page Six. They split in 2010 and were divorced the following year.


They often did not go on vacation together as Ashley was so career-focused. An insider even told Us Weekly that Olsen had specifically been looking for an older guy after years of dealing with "boys". "He traveled without her several times".

She wrote: "My husband has terminated the lease on our New York City residence. without my consent".

According to the outlet, which obtained the original filing, Olsen was looking to speed up the process with an emergency order because Sarkozy allegedly terminated the lease of their NY apartment, and his lawyers have also reportedly emailed Olsen notifying her that she needs to move out by May 18.

"[Working hard] comes quite naturally for us", Mary-Kate told the Net-A-Porter's fashion magazine The Edit in 2017.


In court documents she claimed: 'my husband expects me to move out of our home on [May 18] in the middle of New York City being on pause due to COVID-19'. "I ride horses on the weekends", she revealed.

However, the former child star was met with a setback, since NY courts are not now accepting new divorce filings due to the coronavirus pandemic unless they are cases of emergency. Us confirmed on May 14 that a judge rejected her petition. You find the thing that helps you relax and if you don't have it, you have to look for it. "This has changed", says one source.

It seems like Olsen won't see much of a financial loss following her breakup with Sarkozy. "Her work schedule is beyond disciplined", a source explained to People.

Although a lot of things haven't gone the way she has hoped so far, this is something she probably really appreciates.
