Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy have finalized their divorce.
A judge at New York Supreme Court signed off on the pair’s settlement agreement on Monday, according to US Weekly
This means that their divorce has been granted.
Lawyers declared that the couple had reached a settlement after attending a virtual hearing on Jan. 13.
According to Page Six, Sarkozy’s attorney, Michael Mosberg, told Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Lori Sattler, “As of this morning, we reached a final agreement.”
Sattler asked Olsen’s lawyer, Nancy Chemtob, if she agreed, which she did.
“Yes, your honour, that is correct, everything is resolved,” Chemtob replies. “We’ve been working very hard. We do have a settlement.”
Mosberg meanwhile promised that the divorce would be finalized with a signed agreement submitted to the judge by next week.
Wary of both attorneys, Justice Sattler said, “Until I actually see the proof, I’m going to hold your feet to the fire a little bit.” She added, “I do trust and believe that this is happening, however, I’m going to keep control of the case to make sure this gets done and get them divorced.”
Olsen and Sarkozy, the French financier brother of former French President Nicolas Sarkozy, were married for 5 years.
Olsen filed for divorce in May and asked for the case to be expedited because she claimed Sarkozy was trying to kick her out of their $29,000-per-month New York City apartment. Olsen was reticent to vacate the apartment given the COVID-19 pandemic. Olsen’s request was ultimately dismissed and she moved to a $325,000 per-month mansion rental in the Hamptons.
