Emily Ratajkowski didn’t shy away from addressing the obstacles in her personal life. The media personality who filed for divorce from her husband of four years, Sebastian Bear-McClard has been dealing with a lot of spectaculations regarding her dating life. In a recent interview with Glamour UK, Ratajkowski gave a candid response to the misconceptions about her dating life. Check out the complete details of this story.
Emily said if you are a single mother who’s dating, then it is not a good look
The 32-year-old who shares a 2-year-old son, Sylvester, with Sebastian said, “The recent thing that’s been killing me is that I somehow want people to know what’s going on in my personal life. I just want to set the record straight. In a custody battle, if you are a single mother who’s dating, then it is not a good look.”
Ratajkowski says of her son, “The most important thing for my child is him being safe and us being together. I would never risk that.”
The former actress noted, “Just pragmatically if you know anything about the court system, you know anything about divorce, there is a decent amount of sexism embroiled in that and embedded in that system. And the most important thing for me is my child. So let’s just put that idea to rest. It’s hard on the relationships and it’s hard for me personally.”
Therefore, talking about her dating life the My Body author explains, “I could do the very crazy, high-profile thing of going through the back door, blah, blah, blah. And I haven’t done that. And there’s been a few moments over the past year, even in the last six months, where I’ve been like ‘OK, well, I can’t keep having this experience,’ so I want to hide… and I’ve done that successfully, but then it’s like the one time I’m out on the street, it’s a photo. So, I think I’ve just given up on trying to control it, for better or for worse…”
“Basically I have sort of accepted that there’s only so much I can do to keep my private life private, And I want to enjoy my life, and if that means that everyone has an opinion on what I’m doing, then so be it,” she added.
However, for now, the mother of one is appreciating herself and the women like her, as she told Entertainment Tonight, “I think that there’s a lot of taboo around divorce and a lot of shame and I think that that isn’t helpful, particularly for young women who are trying to get out of bad relationships. I want to spread a little positivity and I think that divorce, deciding to leave a relationship despite the financial hardship, despite what it’s going to mean for your kids, everything, is really brave and I want women to feel better about it.”
