Emily Ratajkowski talks about getting divorced at a young age

Model Emily Ratajkowski has opened up about the reality of being divorced and single in her early thirties.

Ratajkowski, 32, appears to have just given a subtle nod of support to the newly single man Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner in a candid TikTok.

Earlier this week, it was announced that actor Turner, 27, and musician Joe Jonas, who share two young daughters, have split after four years of marriage.

This week, Miley Cyrus also shared the moment she realized it was time to break up with her ex-husband Liam Hemsworth.

Cyrus was just 27 when the two broke up, and she took to TikTok to say she realized it was over in 2018 during her Glastonbury concert.

“The day of the show was the day when I decided that in my life I would not be able to be in that relationship again,” she said.

With young women divorcing becoming a trend in Hollywood, Ratajkowski took to social media to argue that getting divorced before the age of 30 is nothing to be ashamed of, declaring it “chic”.

“A lot of ladies seem to get divorced before they turn 30,” the model noted.

She then shared that she got married in her mid-20s and was separated in her 30s.

Ratajkowski was famously married to producer Sebastian Bear-McClard, and the two ended their marriage in 2022.

The couple has a small child together, and although Ratajkowski said Los Angeles Times that she did not speak publicly about her divorce because she wanted to focus on her young son.

“I’m learning that open women don’t often get their children,” she said.

Ratajkowski claimed that getting divorced young is not bad and even said that it can be a good thing.

“Being in your 20s is the trenches,” she said.

The young mum said there was nothing better than being single in her 30s and having “little money” and being “still hot”.

She explained that it can be empowering to realize that the “fantasy of marriage” isn’t really “all it’s cracked up to be.”

Ratajkowski said that it can actually be a good thing to come into your own when you’re young because you still have “your whole life ahead of you.”

“For all those who are stressed about the divorce, that’s good and congratulations,” she said.
