Mary-Kate Olsen’s emergency petition for divorce from her husband Olivier Sarkozy has been denied by the court.
The actress had sought the emergency order to protect her property amid their divorce, after Olivier allegedly served notice on their apartment without letting her know.
Mary-Kate had appealed to the court for the emergency filing after she was told to remove her belongings from the apartment by 18 May, something she was unable to do due to the restrictions caused by the coronavirus pandemic in New York.
However, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Michael Katz ruled that it wasn’t an essential matter, denying her proposal.
New York courts spokesman Lucian Chalfen confirmed the news, telling E!: ‘The original filing was rejected by the New York County Clerk because they did not follow the essential matter procedure.
‘They refiled under the essential matter procedure and the matter was referred to the ex-party State Supreme Court Judge.
‘He just decided that it is not an essential matter so they can’t file anything at this point.’
Mary-Kate had filed documents this week saying she had originally tried to file for divorce a month earlier, but was unable to due to the restrictions caused by the pandemic.
Page Six reports that her application states: ‘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.
‘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.’
Mary-Kate had reportedly asked to be able to continue to use the couple’s home in the Hamptons as well as two of their apartments and asked for the terms of her prenuptial agreement to be upheld.
Metro.co.uk has contacted the couple’s reps for comment.
