The big tabloid story about Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen this week is that Ashley has asked Mary-Kate to step back from her professional duties at their high-end line The Row until her personal life is more together.
“Ashley really wants to be a respected businesswoman and be taken seriously,” a source tells In Touch. “MK does too, but she hasn’t been willing to give up her lifestyle and act like an adult for their job.”
The source goes on to say that while they conceived The Row together, it’s become increasingly difficult for Ashley to deal with MK’s personal life and how it affects their work. Supposedly, MK will turn solely to Elizabeth & James–the line MK was more involved in than Ashley anyways.
From the beginning, MK and Ashley have been up-front with the fact that The Row is more Ashley’s project and Elizabeth & James is more MK’s. They’ve also been upfront with the fact that they are growing apart as they grow older–not a big deal. I think this is In Touch‘s way to try to make magazine sales out of nothing.
