The 25-year-old former child star Mary-Kate Olsen is in a relationship with former French President Nicolas Sarkozy’s half-brother, Olivier Sarkozy, the New York Post reported.

Sarkozy, 42, a French-American businessman who is the managing director of the Washington D.C.-based Carlyle Group, has been dating fashion designer Olsen for a month. The pair spent Memorial Day weekend in the Hamptons.

Olsen dated artist Nate Lowman for two years until 2010. Olivier, previously married to writer Charlotte Sarkozy with two children, dated actress Stella Schnabel for two years until this March.

Mary-Kate Olsen rose to fame with her twin sister Ashley Olsen when they were toddlers, playing Michelle Tanner on sitcom “Full House,” which was broadcast between 1987 and 1995.

Mary-Kate Olsen’s most recent acting role was in 2011 film “Beastly,” a modern adaptation of fairytale “Beauty and the Beast.” Ashley Olsen had her last acting role in the 2004 movie “New York Minute” with her twin sister.

The Olsen twins’ younger sister, Elizabeth Olsen, starred in the 2011 film “Martha Marcy May Marlene.”
