During the COVID-19 pandemic, the courts were closed in New York – with the exception of the treatment of “essential matters” – and the divorce of Mary-Kate Olsen apparently did not fall into this category. On Wednesday, Olsen filed an emergency affidavit because divorce requests are not being granted due to the pandemic, but a day later, a judge denied his request.
According to People magazine, in the affidavit, Olsen spoke of his fear of being evicted from his apartment by her ex-husband, Olivier Sarkozy. She said Sarkozy had ended their lease on their New York apartment without her knowledge, and she had serious concerns about moving to the middle of a pandemic.

I just saw that Mary-Kate Olsen has a tendency. I now feel compelled to cry out to the first people I have ever met. Your childhood was not complete if you had not grown up watching their films. pic.twitter.com/0QrAH4cRuV
