Mary-Kate Olsen has officially filed for divorce from Olivier Sarkozy, a banker who is the half-brother of the former French president Nicolas Sarkozy.
According to sources, the 33-year-old fashion mogul and 50-year-old banker ultimately couldn’t agree on what they wanted their future to look like. Sources have said she wanted to have children, while he was content with his three adult children from a previous marriage. Reports also suggest that he wanted her to be more of a “stay-at-home wife,” and didn’t understand her dedication to her business ventures.
Olsen and Sarkozy have been married for five years, but together for eight after meeting in 2012. The couple has been notoriously private, but here’s everything we do know about their relationship, from when they met to their split.
April-November 2012: Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy reportedly first met at a party in April 2012, and things moved pretty quickly from there. They were eventually photographed cuddling at a New York Knicks versus Dallas Mavericks game at Madison Square Garden in November, which confirmed the relationship publicly.
February 2014: Sarkozy allegedly popped the question with a vintage Cartier ring valued at $81,250. Mary-Kate accepts and the wedding planning begins.
November 2015: The couple tied the knot in a private Manhattan ceremony, with just 50 people in attendance. “Party decor consisted of bowls and bowls filled with cigarettes, and everyone smoked the whole night,” a source told Pate Six at the time. Not much else is known, as guests were required to hand over their phones upon entering.
