Though sports fans didn't get to see Mary-Kate Olsen, 26, and her boyfriend, 42-year-old French banker Olivier Sarkozy, on the big screen at Friday night's New York Knicks game at Manhattan's Madison Square Garden, those seated near the twosome got an eyeful as the two canoodled throughout the game from their courtside seats as photographers snapped away.
While Olsen is well above legal age, and the couple seem happy together, the photos from the game that surfaced over the weekend of a youthful-looking Olsen being kissed by Sarkozy (who happens to look a bit older than his 42 years) created a bit of buzz over the weekend. In the photos, the two smooched on the lips, Sarkozy rested his head on her shoulder, and kissed Olsen on the forehead. But many were thinking the same thing: She kind of looks like she could be his daughter.

OK, OK. So they didn't actually do anything wrong and we should live and let live, right? Well, what made the scenario actually bizarre was that Sarkozy's two children (who look like they could be Olsen's peers), joined their dad and his girlfriend at the Knicks-Dallas Mavericks game and were sitting next to them as the PDA session went down. Kind of weird, right?
Interestingly, the first-ever pics of Olsen and Sarkozy canoodling together took place at yet another Knicks game, back in April. Guess the two find all that dribbling to be quite romantic.

Sarkozy, the half-brother of former French president Nicolas Sarkozy, divorced his wife of 14 years and the mother of his children, writer Charlotte Bernard, last year. He and Olsen have been dating for about nine months.
The former "Full House" star addressed the media attention she's been getting for dating an older man in WSJ Magazine last month. "Everyone has an opinion," she said in the interview. "I find it's better to focus on what's in front of you and to keep putting one foot in front of the other."
