In July, Emily Ratajkowski separated from her husband of four years, Sebastian Bear-McClard. He was reportedly cheating on her a lot and she found the whole situation pretty gross. To her credit, there doesn’t seem to be any backsliding. Emily seems completely done with Sebastian and she’s moving on. Emily has also recently been posting messages supportive of Amber Heard. Emily has spoken out about abusers and harassers for years, she’s been pretty consistent about it. So why do people believe that she’s already dating… Brad Pitt??
There may be a new Hollywood couple in town. Brad Pitt and recently single Emily Ratajkowski are going to be taking the title of Hollywood’s golden couple from Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck following claims that the handsome hunk and supermodel are “secretly dating.”
After it was reported last month that Ratajkowski pulled the plug on her marriage to Sebastian Bear-McClard following cheating rumors, Pitt seemed to have taken the opportunity to swoop in.
“Brad was crushing on Emily at the 2020 Vanity Fair Oscar party,” spilled a source. “They weren’t in a private area or anything like that, but they did talk with friends around.”
“Obviously, she was off-limits back then,” noted the insider, as Ratajkowski and Bear-McClard tied the knot in 2018 and even share 1-year-old son Sylvester. “She was happily married [to Sebastian Bear-McClard}, and Brad respected that.”
However, now that Bear-McClard is seemingly no longer in the picture, Pitt made his move. “He asked her out, and she said yes. She’s always thought Brad was cute, and the way she saw it, what did she have to lose?” pointed out the insider.
First of all, while OK! Mag sometimes gets an odd gossip story right (I still remember when they accidentally predicted Eva Mendes’s secret pregnancy), this just reeks of Brad’s team trying to attach himself to someone “hot.” Or worse yet, it’s just a tabloid fantasy of “these two people are single, why not.” It’s weird to say this, but I actually think Emily Ratajkowski is too smart to mess with Brad? But what do I know, she definitely wants a higher profile and dating Brad would be one way to get it. I just feel like she probably followed the disclosures from the unsealed FBI file on the 2016 plane incident.
