Olsen had requested an emergency order, after citing fears that she would be forced out of their shared apartment.

According to a source, it was Mary-Kate’s focus on her career that caused tension in her marriage to the banker. They said,

“She is the type of person who would never complain about a 12-hour workday. Olivier never understood her drive and passion. ”
