Single and ready to mingle! Mary-Kate Olsen is reportedly dating again after her Olivier Sarkozy split. Rumors about the actress-turned-designer's love life began to swirl on Oct. 7 when The Daily Mail published pictures of her strolling around New York City with a mystery man. Later that same day, a source reportedly spoke to Entertainment Tonight to clarify. Apparently, that dude was just a friend and Olsen is just focused on enjoying single life for now. (Elite Daily reached out to reps for Olsen for comment but did not hear back in time for publication.)

"She's single and having fun," the source reportedly told Entertainment Tonight. "She's not seriously with anyone, but she's dating."

According to the reported source, Olsen apparently has just returned to New York City after having spent the summer in the Hamptons. The source reportedly said, "She's doing great and seems happier than she's been in a long time."

Olsen's entrance into the dating scene comes just six months after she filed for divorce in April 2020. After news of the split broke in May, a source reportedly claimed to People that the couple's separation was due to clashing desires over kids; the source claimed Olsen wanted them, but Sarkozy, who shares two children with his ex-wife Charlotte Bernard, did not. “A few years ago, having a baby was not a priority for her. This has changed,” the source reportedly told People. "Mary-Kate thought he would budge on that and he hasn’t.” (Elite Daily previously reached out to reps for both Sarkozy and Olsen regarding the claims but did not hear back.)

Olsen is typically pretty quiet about her love life, and that hasn't changed in 2020. She hasn't commented on her reported divorce, and she's staying mum about how she's reportedly moving on.

Whatever the case, the point is Olsen and Sarkozy are now done-zo and it seems as though she's doing just fine. Happy for her!
