Mary-Kate Olsen recently filed for divorce from her husband

The Olsen twins are making a come-back in the news because Mary-Kate recently filed for divorce from her husband, Pierre Olivier Sarkozy. They’ve been together for a number of years, but apparently there is trouble in paradise.

A spokesperson for the New York courts told CNN that Mary-Kate’s emergency filing for a divorce has been denied because of the coronavirus (COVID-19). A judge has decided that the filing is “not essential” at this time.

“Only essential/emergency matters are allowed to be filed,” Lucian Chalfen, the New York courts’ spokesperson said about the situation. “The original filing was rejected by the New York County (Manhattan) clerk because they did not follow the essential matter procedure. They refiled under the essential matter procedure, and the matter was referred to an ex parte State Supreme Court Judge. He just decided that it is not essential, so they can’t file anything at this point.”
