Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy’s Unlikely Romance Is Still Going Strong

Pint-sized actress-turned-fashion designer Mary-Kate Olsen raised eyebrows when she was first reported to be dating Olivier Sarkozy, an asset manager and half-brother of Nicolas Sarkozy, the former president of France. The most obvious reason is their difference in stature — he's more than 6' tall and she's just 5'2" — but it doesn't help matters that the 26-year-old's new beau is 17 years her senior. The latest photographs of the odd couple, which, let's be honest, look like a man out with his daughter at first glance, show them buttoned up in coats on the chilly streets of NYC.

Despite the age gap, Olsen and Sarkozy, 43, have managed to make their relationship work. And it's lasted much longer than anyone expected. The unlikely romance began in May, and by Memorial Day weekend they were spotted in the Hamptons together. Six months later, they're still going strong! They lovebirds have since been snapped grabbing lunch with Mary-Kate's sister Ashley, and indulging in PDA while sitting courtside at one of their regular outings to see the New York Knicks in action at Madison Square Garden. The New York Post has reported that the two are even nesting in the $6.25 million, 4,200-square-foot townhouse Sarkozy bought over the summer for them to share.

Though she's clearly smitten with Sarkozy, the notoriously-private Olsen has a history of serious relationships. She's always rumored to be dating someone, but her last confirmed boyfriend was New York artist Nate Lowman, who's in his early 30s, and was by her side from 2008 to 2010. Before that, her BFs included two twentysomethings: shipping heir Stavros Niarchos, who Olsen claimed left her for Paris Hilton after Olsen introduced them, and David Katzenberg, the son of DreamWorks SKG movie studio co-founder Jeffrey Katzenberg, who later dated Nicky Hilton. Those Hilton sisters are trouble!

Sarkozy's past loves include ex-wife Charlotte, who he divorced in 2010 after 13 years of marriage and two school-age children (who Mary-Kate has met), and Stella Schnabel, the 29-year-old actress daughter of artist Julian Schnabel, whom Sarkozy dated for about a year. Charlotte, by the way, has had plenty to say about the Mary-Kate affair! Sarkozy's ex, a children's book author who's about one year younger than he is, labeled the love "grotesque" in an interview with the National Enquirer.

As surprising as it is to see them coupled up, we'd all better get used to the idea of Olsen and Sarkozy being an item. According to an Us Weekly source, "They are madly in love!"
