Mary-Kate Olsen has filed for divorce from her husband for almost five years, Olivier Sarkozy.
But a New York justice system spokesperson told CNN that Olsen’s emergency divorce case earlier this week had been denied by a state Supreme Court judge because divorce was being considered. as “not essential” due to the coronavirus.
“Only essential / urgent matters can be brought,” said Lucian Chalfen of the New York Supreme Court. “The original file was rejected by the New York (Manhattan) county clerk because he did not follow the essential procedure. They fled according to the essential procedure and the case was referred to a judge of the Supreme Court of the ex parte state. that it is not essential, so they cannot deposit anything at this stage. “
Olsen, half of Olsen’s twins from “Full House”, has yet to comment. She is in quarantine with friends in the Hamptons, a source familiar with the situation told CNN.
An Olsen official declined to comment on Thursday before the judge’s announcement was announced.
CNN contacted lawyers for Olsen and Sarkozy.
Olsen, a designer, and Sarkozy, a French-born banker, raised their eyebrows when they were first linked in 2012 due to their age difference of 16.
He is the half-brother of Nicolas Sarkozy, the former president of France.
The couple tied the knot in a small ceremony in 2015 at their New York home – their first and second marriage.
They were extremely deprived of their relationship.
But Olsen, 33, made a rare mention of their marriage in a 2017 interview with The Edit from Net-a-Porter, in which she talked about creating a fashion empire with her twin, Ashley.
“I think we are lucky [working hard] comes naturally to us. We don’t need a lot of time to sit and think and meditate, “said Olsen. But I have a husband, two stepchildren and a life; I have to go home and prepare dinner. “
The Olsen twins achieved international stardom in the 80s sitcom “Full House”, where they shared the role of Michelle Tanner.

They left show business and currently run several luxury fashion brands, including The Row and Elizabeth and James.
