Child star turned fashion designer Ashley Olsen, who turned 30 in June, has reportedly broken up with her 58-year-old boyfriend of five months, financier and art dealer Richard Sachs.
The pair's romance first garnered public attention when they were spotted riding bikes together in the Hamptons in October and soon after were photographed on a double date with Ashley’s sister Mary-Kate and her husband, Olivier Sarkozy, at a Knicks game at Madison Square Garden. While the couple may have been decades apart in age, Ashley has dated older men in the past. She has been romantically linked to visual artist George Condo, 59, as well as the CEO of Oliver Peoples, David Schulte, 47, among others.
According to a source who spoke to Us Weekly, the pair split so Ashley Olsen can spend more time focusing on her clothing line. Together with Mary-Kate she runs the cult-loved designer label The Row as well as the successful contemporary line Elizabeth and James. The source added that the pair will remain friends, which appears to be more than just a nicety, as they were photographed smoking together on a stoop in New York City just last week.
Mary-Kate, meanwhile, recently opened up to Net-a-Porter’s The Edit about enjoying a quiet, domestic life with 47-year-old Sarzoky, whom she wed in November 2015. "I have a husband, two-step kids, and a life; I have to go home and cook dinner. I ride horses on the weekend," she said of married life. Shortly after the interview was published, Us Weekly reported that, according to a source, the couple may be interested in adding another child to the mix.
