According to the Daily Mail, Emily Ratajkowski and her husband Sebastian Bear-McClard were first spotted together in public on Valentine’s Day 2018. With People reporting, the bride opted to wed in a matching mustard-colored pantsuit and jacket.
And while critics continued to push the narrative that the supermodel and her husband were rushing into marriage, Ratajkowski has always been ready to defend her choices. “We had known each other for a long time and he liked to joke, like, ‘Yeah, everyone thinks we got married quickly, but you checked me out for two years, so…'” she said during an appearance on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon.”
Between welcoming their first child together in March 2021 and their endless public displays of love on social media, Ratajkowski and Bear-McClard seem to have it all. But despite their seemingly perfect life together, things weren’t perfect in reality. In July, Page Six hinted that there was trouble in paradise over Bear-McClard’s alleged infidelity. “Yes, he cheated,” an insider told the outlet. “He’s a serial cheater. It’s gross. He’s a dog.” And now Ratajkowski has confirmed what we’ve suspected all along.

According to court documents obtained exclusively by Page Six, Emily Ratajkowski filed for divorce from husband Sebastian Bear-McClard on Sept. 8 after four years of marriage. The lawsuit, which was filed in Manhattan Superior Court, has reportedly been challenged, meaning the estranged couple could face a legal battle in the weeks and months to come.
Though neither Ratajkowski nor Bear-McClard have commented, the model recently confirmed her relationship status when she opened up about her dislike of the concept of patriarchy in a TikTok video. “I feel like – as a recently single person who’s thinking about dating and stuff – I’ve really seen that in my friends and the conversations around it. It’s like, ‘Well, who’s going to get her?'” she said in the video (via Us Weekly).
Ratajkowski’s latest divorce filing follows dating rumors between her and Brad Pitt. The supermodel was spotted having lunch in Paris and holding hands in New York with the ‘Bullet Train’ actor (via Your Tango). While this isn’t confirmed yet, one thing is clear enough — Ratajkowski is back on the dating scene and ready to embrace the future.
