Emily Ratajkowski made out with a ‘mystery man’, Brad Pitt’s PR in shambles

For a full month, Brad Pitt has been trying to convince people that he can attract Emily Ratajkowski. His crisis management team, eager to deflect from the tsunami of sh-tty headlines for Brad, has been saturating the gossip media with quotes about how Emily and Brad are hanging out, that they’re dating but not really, how he thinks Emily is hot as hell, how Emily thinks Brad is a “gentleman.” For her part, Emily implicitly agreed to be used by Brad… up to a point, it would seem. She spoke to Variety last week and she was asked directly about the Pitt rumors, and she “sidestepped” the questions, choosing to talk about how she’s single for the first time in years. Considering her brand is all about “calling out toxic masculinity and abusers,” it was an odd moment to choose silence when a domestic abuser is using her name for social clout.

In any case, I never really thought that Emily and Brad were *actually* dating. It was another Neri Oxman situation, where Pitt’s team created this utter fantasy relationship based on wishful thinking and Pitt’s need to be branded a certain way. And finally, I hope this marks the end of RatPitt… Emily was seen making out with a “mystery man” in NYC:

It looks… third-date-ish? But I’m old, is this what third dates look like these days? It doesn’t look like a first date, I’ll say that. Anyway, I hope Emily is dating someone else, someone younger and someone who doesn’t have a history of abusing his wife and children. I hope Pitt’s little PR escapade has come to a close on this one.

    It was a PR romance that would’ve bloomed had Brad not publicly been exposed as a bigger POS than most people realized. For Emily, this hurts her brand so she’s moving on.

  2. Faround says:

    Good for Emrata! Brad Pitt is an abusive piece of sh*t and this reckoning has been needed for a long time. In his vicious ongoing campaign to attack Angie, he is basically calling his kids liars. The amount of people still willing to give this man quarter is OUTRAGEOUS.

  3. laurie says:

    What in holy fashion hell is she wearing in the banner picture?? 😵‍💫

    • TIFFANY says:

      I was paying attention to what the woman next to her was wearing. That is a great casual look that I am definitely gonna copy if I ever chose to go outside outside again.

    • Twin Falls says:

      Haha @laurie I had the same thought

    • Chaine says:

      I hate that those ginormous jeans have come back in style. She is a gorgeous woman and those make her look so clownish.

    • Jennifer says:

      That outfit is ridiculous bad, sad, and terrible. Saggy ass denim flatters no one. Why?

  4. Zut Alors says:

    Another one bites the dust.

  5. C-Shell says:

    Whoever this man is, she chose perfectly to quash the Pitt PR debacle — he looks like a younger, hotter, better looking Pitt, who ALSO rides around on a motorcycle. LOLz for days!

  6. girl_ninja says:

    Ah ha ha ha Brad is such a bum. Enter *Elmo fire gif*

  7. Lady D says:

    Think he’s starting to wonder, is it me?

  8. lunchcoma says:

    Okay, this is funny. She apparently let Brad play himself. His people kept hyping it up, and now she’s refuted it without saying anything that those same people could use to make her look like she’s attacking him. She’s living her life, and Brad has no way to object without looking any worse than he already does.

  9. LOL says:

    It’s a shame she was happy to play along the child abuser Brad Pitt’s PR..

    • DK says:

      I’m not convinced she was, though. She’s been telegraphing “Hell no, not Brad Pitt” for a while now…
      First, she slammed the movie Blonde (without even seeing it first!), which he produced.

      Then, she had that (ok, maybe queer-baiting, so not great, if that’s all she was doing) post of her suggesting she was hooking up with one of her model (I think?) friends.

      When that wasn’t enough to make it clear to the public, she finally just took to a full on smooching-a-dude pap photo shoot.

      I think she’s been trying to quash these rumors, just too subtly for them to overcome Pitt’s PR team’s arrogance.

      Would I give her more credit if she’d come right out and explicitly shot holes in his PR team’s gross manipulation? Absolutely.

      But there is no denying Brad Pitt remains a powerful industry player, with more social, celebrity & industry power than she has, and she might have felt threatened by what he could do to her if she was explicit.

      Especially if maybe they did hook up this summer, and then the FBI report was released and she realized what an abusive dick he was, and she dropped him…but then explicitly denying that (and thus having to parse out what did happen) gets messy and awkward, and maybe she was just trying to respond in what she thought was the best/safest way: by showing she was not Team Pitt, over and over again, without having to spell it out.

      • Coco says:

        I’m not buying that she might have felt threatened. If she was she wouldn’t have made the comments about Blonde and she has also called out other powerful players in Hollywood before. Not to mention other women and women of color with less power then Pitt have Shut rumors down.

        I think others are right it was starting to hurt her brand so she had to clear the air.

      • Otaku fairy says:

        It seems like she wanted to let it die down and avoid panicking about the public canceling her for a sexual relationship with another bad man. It’s not a tactic I personally agree with at all in situations like this, but it’s the kind of limit some women have had to set for themselves when it comes to rumors about their sex lives. She could have handled it better, but people also showed their true colors in some of their reactions to it.

  10. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    I need the Prince pullover. Now.

  11. Lady Baden-Baden says:

    Good for her. Also, I’m probably being dumb – but I thought you weren’t allowed to show her child’s face like that?? Did she approve it somehow?

  12. Valentina says:

    It’s just fascinating to me that he can’t get one woman to agree to be in a PR relationship with him… that’s not already married.

    He’s had no one to base his entire style and personality around for years now.

    • lanne says:

      Is he still the Ultimate Fantasy Guy for the People magazine reading Minivan Majority? Maybe the truth is that that demographic doesn’t really exist anymore–it’s split into liberal moms who don’t buy magazines anymore and conservative moms who are into MAGA and mlms. Do MAGA women like Pitt anymore, or would he be a “liberal elite” that they hate? Will any 1 person be considered the epitome of “swoonworthy” anymore at all? Maybe that very concept has gone the way of VCRs and Blockbuster video in the US.

    • Jennifer says:

      He’s not in $cientology, so he can’t get someone to set him up with a new girlfriend.


      LOL, I love the “he’s had no one to base his entire style and personality around.”

    • Jay says:

      That’s consistently astonishing, isn’t it? You’d think his pr people could find someone, anyone, willing to at least make some appearances with him for awards season. Either he’s so toxic nobody wants to do it or the calibre of those willing to put up with him for solely fame purposes is not what he hoped.

      I think his best bet would be to find an actress, model, or musician hoping to break in to the American market who will agree to make him seem cool for a little while. Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

      • Evev says:

        That’s exactly what is it – he can get an Instagram model on his arm in 3 minutes flat but then everybody would say, wow what a downgrade from Angelina, and his ego just can’t handle that. So, the caliber of people that he wants don’t want anything to do with him, imo.

  13. HAHAHA I knew it was all just Brad’s PR spouting bullshit, how embarrassing lol! I mentioned on a previous post that he’s already pulled this fake dating rumors crap multiple times in the past, plus if it were true there’s no way in hell that he wouldn’t have staged some pap pics to be “accidentally” leaked, the way he tried to do but failed with his twin children in Italy.

  14. Normades says:

    Lol I knew this would blow up in his face like the married Insta model. He’s such a loser.

  15. jferber says:

    My God, the beautiful baby, the Prince shirt, the cute dog with a pink leash! Loving it. And I’d like to certify that the “mystery man” was IN FACT Brad Pitt. Because I was there. (Nah, it isn’t and I wasn’t.)

  16. Coco says:

    What really strikes me about this is that The Daily Fail purchased the exclusive photo this along with the article from last week as a wondering why did the daily fail is calling
    Pitt out.

  17. Solidgold says:

    People click on articles that link up Brad with a woman. There is money to be made, so his team continue to sell exclusives/false stories to the media. In exchange they go easy on him since he is helping the media profit.

  18. lucy2 says:

    For laughs, I just looked back through all the Neri Oxman stories – the headlines really ran the gamut, from “oooo they met and like each other” all the way to “ooooo he wants her to spend the summer with him and the kids!” Which seems extra gross now, knowing what he did to the children.
    Much like that fake team Brad nonsense, I’ve thought the same with the stuff from Emily. Brad is too famous to go meet up with any woman without being photographed somewhere, by someone, and it didn’t happen with Neri…or Charlize…or Emily. If he were really seeing someone, there’d be pictures – just look at Emily here, who is much less famous, getting papped with some dude.

    • Annalise says:

      What’s extra funny is that Oxman was in a relationship with some billionaire finance guy the WHOLE time Pitt was broadcasting to the world about their supposed amazing connection. I think it was when she announced that she was having a baby with said billionaire, that Pitt was forced to shut it down. What a loser 🤣🤣🤣🤣

      • Annalise says:

        And I too am finding endless amusement in the fact that NO ONE wants to even fake-date Brad Pitt!! The thought of how BAFFLED and INFURIATED he is by this, tickles the shit out of me!
        I can just picture Brad trying to convince himself and others that HE is not the problem, hes probably all “Well there was Neri and you know Neri was really torn between me and her billionaire boyfriend, but I just wasn’t really trying to move to Boston….” or “Yeah Emily was really into me, but I wanted to take it slow and really get to know her, but she was just like, all over me… Did you see those pics of her making out with some random dude? Girl is a nymph..”
