It totally makes total sense why a former child star might remain tight-lipped about their love life – after many years spent in the spotlight, it's only natural to protect personal matters from the prying public eye. Hence, Mary-Kate Olsen's dating history is chock full of little-known romances. Remember that rumor about her and Heath Ledger? What about her relationship with a famous foreign heir? Fret not — I'm going to delve into all of that shortly. (Elite Daily reached out to reps for Olsen and all rumored partners mentioned in this story for comment on the reported relationships, and did not hear back in time for publication.)
Without a doubt, Olsen’s highest-profile relationship has been her marriage to Olivier Sarkozy, who she began dating in 2012 and wed in 2015 notoriously surrounded by ashtrays. Five years after they tied the knot, news broke that she attempted to file for divorce on April 17, but was unable to do so because of the coronavirus pandemic, and then sought to end her marriage via an emergency order (which was declined). Given that she rarely spoke about the relationship, little is known about it — which made the news about their split even more shocking.
Long before she dated Sarkozy — a banker and half-brother of a former French president — Olsen seemed to be drawn to men with creative sensibilities: passionate artists in a wide range of fields from A-list actors to prolific photographers. ICYMI, here are all the people she’s dated over the years, from full-blown relationships to brief flings.
