Rumors about Emily Ratajkowski’s divorce to Sebastian Bear-McClard began in July 2022 with Sebastian’s infidelity in question.
Model, actress and best-selling author Emily Ratajkowski has officially filed from divorce from her husband Sebastian Bear-McClard, amid claims that the filmmaker was unfaithful to her during their 4-year marriage. Court records show that the 31-year-old model took the first steps to legally end her marriage on September 8, 2022, filing for divorce in a Manhattan Supreme Court.
The divorce is contested, which means that the two parties have yet to agree on the exact circumstance of the divorce and the division of assets going forward.
Rumors of trouble in her marriage began circulating in July 2022, when Page Six reported that actor and producer Bear-McClard had been repetitively cheating on his wife. Not long after the reports started, Emily was seen out and about without her wedding ring.
Emily has given hints about Sebastian’s infidelity on social media, liking suspicious tweets. Here is everything we know about Emily Ratajkowski’s divorce from Sebastian Bear-McClard.
Model Emily Ratajkowski and Uncut Gems producer Sebastian Bear-McClard married in 2018 in a surprise courthouse ceremony at New York City Hall. When they announced their wedding, their relationship had only been public for a few weeks. The two had been dating for less than a year when they wed.
“I love a party and I plan on having that moment, but people don’t end up enjoying their wedding as they are so stressed by the planning and having this ‘moment’. I really wanted this to just be me and him which was really special … before the world found out we had four hours of just us,” she said of the low key New York ceremony.
She hit out at the backlash of their short courtship. “We knew each other for a long time before, and he likes to joke, ‘Yeah everyone thinks we got married quickly, but you vetted me for two years,’” she said.
Emily Ratajkowski opened up to Jimmy Fallon on his late-night show about her unusual proposal.
“He proposed to me at Minetta Tavern, and he didn’t have a ring, so I was like mmm, nah,” she told the host. “And then he took the paper clip that the bill was paid with and made me a ring, which I actually thought was really romantic.”
They later recruited an Israeli jewelry designer to help create rings, which they “hammered out” themselves.
