Mary-Kate Olsen can't seem to get divorced fast enough!
The former "Full House" star, 33, wasted no time getting her divorce from Olivier Sarkozy, 50, on the books once New York City courts reopened amid the coronavirus pandemic on Monday, May 25.
Mary-Kate initially signed a petition for divorce on April 17, but her filing was put on hold because the courts were closed to non-emergency cases. "It was clear my marriage was over," she cited in the official documents obtained by Page Six, "the relationship has broken down irretrievably."
Still intent on legally ending her marriage, she then requested an emergency divorce on the grounds that Olivier was allegedly forcing her out of their Gramercy Park apartment amid a public-health crisis. According to TMZ, the French banker ended the lease on the couple's pad without Mary-Kate's knowledge and gave her a deadline to get her things out by mid May.
"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 wrote in her court 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."
Left to look for a new place to live despite stay-at-home orders, the actress-turned-designer's desperate plea to the Manhattan Supreme Court was still denied on May 14. But Mary-Kate was finally able to send in her petition for divorce today as the court started to accept new cases via electronic submission.
She also managed to find new digs for the summer, reportedly renting a massive estate in the Hamptons for $325,000.
The now-exes were married for under five years, having tied the knot on November 27, 2015. Mary-Kate took on the role of stepmom to Olivier's two children, Julien and Margo, from his previous marriage to Charlotte Bernard.
