Mary-Kate Olsen, the former television star turned fashion designer, is reportedly dating Frenchman Olivier Sarkozy. If you think the name sounds familiar, that's because the 42-year-old is the younger brother of former French president Nicholas Sarkozy, reports US Weekly magazine.
Though Olsen and Olivier are seventeen years apart, a source says the age difference suits the Hollywood star just fine, saying, "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". The New York Post's Page Six was first to break the news on Wednesday morning (May 30, 2012), with a source telling the paper that the couple had been dating for just over a month. Sarkozy has two children with his former wife Charlotte - a freelance fashion writer and the author of children's books. A hugely successful businessman, Olivier currently sits on the Board of Directors of BankUnited. He split from his last serious girlfriend, the actress Stella Schnabel, in March 2011.
Olsen's most recent long-term relationship with was with the artist Nate Lowman, from who she split in 2010. She was a close friend of the late actor Heath Ledger, and was the first person his masseuse rang upon finding the Batman star unconscious.
