Model Emily Ratajkowski, who separated from Sebastian Bear-McClard in the previous year, has previously called divorce “chic”.

Emily Ratajkowski is a strong advocate against stigmatizing divorce. During an interview at the Victoria’s Secret World Tour fashion show in New York City, the 32-year-old model emphasized the significance of supporting and empowering women navigating the challenges of divorce.

Emily Ratajkowski has personal experience with divorce, having filed for divorce from Sebastian Bear-McClard in September 2022, just two months after their separation. The couple has a 2-year-old son named Sylvester Apollo Bear.

I think there’s a lot of taboo around divorce and a lot of shame. I think 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. I want women to feel better about it,

she stated.

Regarding her romantic status, Emily Ratajkowski, who has been connected with celebrities like Harry Styles and Eric Andre, shared that she is happily single at the moment.

I like being single, [I’m] single for the first time in my life.
I’m 32. I’m having fun,

she opened up.

Emily Ratajkowski expressed her gratitude for being part of the Victoria’s Secret event and highlighted that she initially used TikTok as a platform to share her views on marriage and divorce.

Personally I find it chic to be divorced by the age of 30,

she noted.

So it seems that a lot of ladies are getting divorced before they turn 30. As someone who got married at 26, has been separated for a little over a year, I’m 32, I have to tell you, I don’t think there’s anything better.

Being in your 20s is the trenches. There is nothing better than being in your 30s, still being hot, maybe having a little bit of your own money, figuring out what you want to do with your life, everything, and having tried that married fantasy and realized that maybe it’s not all it’s cracked up to be and then you’ve got your whole life ahead of you,

she shared on TikTok.

So for all those people who are stressed or feeling stressed about that,
about being divorced, it’s good. Congratulations!

she added.

The Victoria’s Secret World Tour will be available for streaming on Prime Video starting September 26th.
