(27 November 2015 - present)
Mary-Kate Olsen has a new man in her life and he comes from a very famous family! The child-star-turned-fashion-mogul is dating the brother of former French president Nicolas Sarkozy.
In May 2012, it was revealed that Olsen was dating Olivier Sarkozy, half brother of former French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
The New York Post broke the news that Olsen, 25, and Olivier Sarkozy, 42, have quietly been seeing each other for the last month. The couple took their romance public over Memorial Day weekend when they spent time together in the Hamptons. They're "head over heels," a source told the paper.
An Olsen insider confirmed the pairing to Us Weekly, saying: "It's true, they're dating, and she's definitely interested in him." As for the 17-year age gap between the two, "MK is constantly complaining about boys not being mature enough for her. She got the kids out of her system. Now being a businesswoman dominates her time, and she is rarely impressed with guys." A second source confirmed the new relationship to the celebrity magazine, noting: ""They are good for each other."
So who is Olivier Sarkozy, other than the younger, half-brother of Nicolas and brother-in-law of Nicolas' singer/actress/model wife Carla Bruni? For one, he's a businessman. Olivier is an asset manager in the financial industry whose official job title is managing director and head of The Carlyle Group's Global Financial Services Group. Earlier this month he was also elected to Butterfield Bank's board of directors. He received his masters in medieval history from St. Andrew's University in Scotland, then started working in the United States. Olivier, who has dual American and French citizenship, is currently based in New York City.
They got engaged in February 2014, and married in September 2014.
In May 2012, Olsen began a relationship with Olivier Sarkozy, half brother of former French President Nicolas Sarkozy. In March 2014, photos were published showing Olsen wearing what appeared to be an engagement ring. Olsen and Sarkozy were married on November 27, 2015, at a private residence in New York City.
