Mary-Kate Olsen is known for being fiercely protective of her personal life but, for once, she’s let her guard down. She and much older boyfriend Olivier Sarkozy put on a very public display of affection at a recent game.

“We don't like to creep, but we also couldn't help but notice how much the French banker liked to pet his 26-year-old girlfriend. So perhaps the couple was trying to tell us something with their courtside canoodling. Something like, ‘Haters gonna hate’,” the Post further says.
Back in May, when news broke of the new man in Mary-Kate’s life, insiders were saying that the half-brother of the former French President had what all her other lovers lacked completely: maturity.
