Mary-Kate Olsen Dating Former French President’s Bro

File this under reasonably creepy:

Mary-Kate Olsen, the girl most of us of a certain age remember as “Michelle” on the ’90s sitcom “Full House”, is dating Olivier Sarkozy. Sarkozy is the managing director for the Carlyle Group, but more importantly, he is the brother of former French president Nicolas Sarkozy. Oh, and he’s 42. She’s 25.

While there’s nothing wrong with an age difference per se, this one is just big enough to raise some eyebrows. Apparently the two have been dating a month and are very happy together, which is all well and good, but still….it’s weird, no? What could two people from two such different generations have in common?

Although the two stories can’t really be compared, it does bring to mind the controversial marriage of Doug Hutchison and Courtney Stodden, who married when he was 51 and she was 16. Of course, Mary-Kate is obviously in a better position at age 25 than Stodden was to make such decisions, but with such a vast age difference, people are always going to debate about whether or not it’s right.

I’m just glad she’s not dating Dave Coulier. That would be weird.

Mary-Kate Olsen is reportedly dating Nicolas Sarkozy’s brother Olivier—or as we think she calls him, Olivier So-Cozy.
