Mary-Kate Olsen’s Divorce Fillings Have Been Rejected Twice
The fashion designer and infamous smoker first filed for divorce from the Frenchman on April 17, 2020, her filing was rejected by the court. The New York courts are following the Covid-19 regulations and are only accepting divorce filings if they are emergencies.
Then, Olsen tried to file for divorce again as an emergency case but the courts rejected her appeal again in May 2020. Her divorce filing was rejected by Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Michael Katz.
A spokesperson of the court revealed that the first filing was rejected because “they did not follow the essential matter procedure,” and the spokesperson also commented that “essential, emergency” filings are being accepted by the court.
Further, the court’s spokesperson clarified the decision to reject the refiled case stating
“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 said that she refiled under the emergency procedure as her apartment’s lease has been terminated by her ex-husband.
MK has an “ironclad prenup” as per various online sources and things should settle due to this after divorce is filed.
