The news of Mary-Kate and Oliver’s split was announced on May 13.
TMZ reported that Mary-Kate requested an emergency filing as New York courts were closed but a judge denied her request.
Mary Kate’s lawyers received an email from Olivier’s lawyers that she was to have her things out of their apartment by May 18, and claimed that Olivier had terminated their lease and was trying to force her out, according to legal documents obtained by the outlet.
And as soon as the courts opened, Mary-Kate’s lawyers filed for her divorce proceedings.
Mary Kate’s lawyers filed a summons and complaint in Manhattan on Monday, which was the first day that the courts have been opened to non-essential filings since the city was shut down.
Fortunately, it sounds like Mary-Kate is well protected financially.
According to an Us Weekly report, Mary-Kate has an “ironclad prenup” that will (fingers crossed) prevent Oliver from taking from her $500 million bank account.
“Her business interests and fortune are protected,” a source who is close to the fashion designer revealed to the outlet.
While it is unclear why the two decided to go there separate ways, Mary-Kate has always shied away from the public eye.
Oliver is a 51-year-old father of two and Mary-Kate is 33-years-old.
