Yesterday, May 20, it was reported that Mary-Kate Olsen filed for divorce from Olivier Sarkozy over a disagreement about starting a family.
“A few years ago, having a baby was not a priority for her. This has changed,” once source told People. Another claimed, “Mary-Kate thought he would budge on that and he hasn’t.” (Sarkozy already has two grown children with his ex-wife, Charlotte Bernard.)
Now it seems that, despite not wanting more children with Olsen, the 50-year-old French banker was reportedly looking for a "stay-at-home wife." A source told People on May 21, "Mary-Kate is extremely hardworking and focused on her business. Her work schedule is beyond disciplined." In case you forgot, the Olsen twins currently run two major fashion brands, The Row and Elizabeth and James.
"She is the type of person who would never complain about a 12-hour workday," the source continued. "Olivier never understood her drive and passion. He would have loved to have a stay-at-home wife."
According to the source, Olsen rarely takes vacations while "Olivier loves traveling to tropical places with his French friends. He traveled without her several times."
A fashion insider suggested to People that Sarkozy wanted more of Olsen's time. "You can't control a girl who has been on the billionaire track since her 20s," they said.
People's report from May 20 described Sarkozy as a "party boy and a big spender” who "loves the high life."
Meanwhile, a fashion source referred to Olsen as "more reclusive." “Mary-Kate prefers to be quiet and alone and doing the things she likes,” they said. “She’s not that interested in socializing—she likes small gatherings with select people. They ended up being apart quite a bit.”
Olsen signed a petition for an emergency divorce on April 17, but it was rejected by a New York judge due to the coronavirus pandemic. “We are only accepting essential/emergency matters for filing. The original filing was rejected by the New York County Clerk because they did not follow the essential-matter procedure,” New York courts spokesman Lucian Chalfen told People. “They refiled under the essential-matter procedure and the matter was referred to the ex parte judge, a New York State Supreme Judge. He decided that it is not essential, so they can’t file anything at this point.”
