Ashley Olsen Steps Out in NYC, Mary-Kate Faces a Setback in Divorce Proceedings

Ashley Olsen was spotted stepping out in New York City after her sister Mary-Kate faced a setback in her divorce proceedings.

The 33-year-old fashion designer and former actress was spotted outside an apartment building with a friend on Thursday (May 14) in the Soho neighborhood.

That same day, it was revealed that Mary-Kate‘s request for an emergency order to file for divorce from husband Olivier Sarkozy had been denied.

Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Michael Katz ruled on Thursday that the divorce order is not an “essential” matter during the pandemic.

New York courts spokesman Lucian Chalfen told People, “We are only accepting essential/emergency matters for filing. 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 parte judge a New York State Supreme Judge. He decided that it is not essential so they can’t file anything at this point.”

Mary-Kate originally signed a petition for divorce on April 17 and the emergency petition was filed on Wednesday after she received a notice from Sarkozy‘s lawyers telling her to move out of their apartment by April 18.

Here is what reportedly caused the strain in the marriage.
