The former child-star is splitting from husband Olivier Sarkozy after more than four years of marriage
Update: Lucian Chalfan, a spokesperson for the New York court system confirmed Thursday evening that Mary-Kate Olsen's emergency divorce filing had been denied. Currently the courts are only considered emergency and essential divorce filings, and the judge presiding over the matter determined that Olsen's petition for divorce, "was not an essential matter."
In November of 2015 fashion designer and former child-star Mary-Kate Olsen married Pierre Olivier Sarkozy.
Sarkozy, a French investment banker and half-brother of former president of France Nicolas Sarkozy, was 46 at the time while the Full House star was only 29. But the media empire and fashion brands that Olsen developed along with twin sister Ashley Olsen had already made her substantially wealthier than her millionaire husband—with her net worth that year estimated at around $150 million.
With that in mind Olsen had prioritized establishing an iron-clad pre-nuptial agreement to protect her assets in case of a divorce. Nearly five years later that foresight has proven to be shrewd, because Olsen's wealth has since grown to nearly $250 million, and her marriage to Sarkozy has fallen apart. Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond her control, that pre-nup might not be enough to protect her.
