Last Friday, Page Six had two separate stories about the state of Emily Ratajkowski’s marriage to Sebastian Bear-McClard. A gossip podcaster said that it was an open secret that Emily and Sebastian were done and that they had already separated, roughly 15 months after welcoming their son Sylvester. Then someone close to Emily – an unnamed source – told Page Six that yeah, Emily and Sebastian were done and he cheated on her a lot and the whole thing was “gross.” Now a more official statement, I guess, to People Mag:
Emily Ratajkowski and Sebastian Bear-McClard have gone their separate ways after four years of marriage. A source close to Ratajkowski confirmed to PEOPLE that the couple has split.
“They split recently. It was Em’s decision. She is doing okay. She is strong and focused on her son. She loves being a mom,” the insider tells PEOPLE, adding that the model plans to file for divorce.
Reps for the couple have not returned PEOPLE’s request for comment.
Speculation about a possible separation began this week after the model was seen running errands without her wedding ring. She’s also not wearing it in her recent Instagram photos.
I’m a broken record on this, but Ring Watch isn’t the best way to determine whether people are splitting up. Sometimes people forget their rings or lose their rings. My point is that the “gossip” about Emily and Sebastian was about a lot more than Emily being seen without her ring. Clearly, there have been stories going around New York about Sebastian’s infidelities. It also sounds like Emily only recently found out, which says that either A) he’s been cheating for a while and he was good at covering his tracks until he wasn’t or B) he hasn’t been discreet at all and one of Emily’s friends finally f–king told her. I feel sorry for her. At least she got a beautiful, healthy baby out of the marriage.
