Mary-Kate Olsen's divorce from her husband of nearly five years has hit a roadblock.
A Manhattan Supreme Court Justice ruled on Thursday that she can't go forward with her divorce petition because it's not an emergency, Page Six reported.
The 33-year-old fashion mogul is desperate to formally file for divorce from Olivier Sarkozy, but she's been unable to because New York City's court system will not currently accept non-emergency filings due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Mary-Kate argues that her divorce qualifies as an emergency.
"This application is an emergency because my husband expects me to move out of our home on Monday, May 18, 2020 in the middle of New York City being on pause due to COVID-19," she said in her paperwork. "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."
She claimed that the only way to protect her property is through a divorce filing, which would trigger an automatic court order preventing Oliver, 50, from disposing of her property.
In her court filing, she asked for a May 30 deadline to move out, alleging that the pandemic and city guidelines make it impossible to meet the May 18 date. Page Six said she also wants to be able to use the couple's home in New York's affluent Hamptons area and two of their ritzy apartments in Manhattan. Further, she wants her ex, a French banker, to continue to provide her with health and dental insurance, and she's asked the court to uphold their prenuptial agreement.
There is some speculation that the "Full House" star could file for divorce in a different county that doesn't have the same rules in place as Manhattan. By filing in a different county, it would at the very least put a temporary freeze on marital assets.
