‘They don’t know how to handle a strong woman, so they knock you down’: Emily Ratajkowski says she ‘attracts the worst men’ – after Pete Davidson split
Emily Ratajkowski has said she thinks she “attracts the worst men” – following her split from notorious womanizer Pete Davidson and ex-husband Sebastian Bear-McClard.
The Blurred Lines beauty, 31, said it’s “f**ked up” that men say they want a “strong woman” but don’t actually know how to handle it, so “bring her down” if result.
While she didn’t name any of her partners directly, Emily split from SNL star Pete, 29, last month after dating for a few weeks.

Emily has been dating other men lately since the end of her marriage to Uncut Gems film producer Sebastian, amid rumors of his alleged infidelity.
Speaking of her High Low podcast she said, “That’s what I hate about dating… men in particular.”
“They’re like, ‘OK, yeah, you’re special. You did it.’ And they love it and they love it, and then they slowly get emasculated and they don’t know what to do with those feelings, and then they hate you.

“They start tearing you down, and then you’re back to square one. And it’s so fucked up and unfair because I feel like a lot of men who really think they want a strong woman don’t actually know how to deal with it and… what it means for their own identity.”
“I told my girlfriend, ‘I feel like I attract the worst men,'” she continued.
“Sometimes I’m like, ‘f**k.’ Because I want a confident man. I don’t want an overly confident man who has something to prove and tries to prove it through me. That’s not what I want.’

Pete Davidson’s relationship history
Carly Aquilino (2014-2015)
Prior to his fame on Saturday Night Live, Pete dated Carly when they starred together on MTV’s Guy Code and Girl Code. Although the romance didn’t work out, Pete and Carly remained friends and he later described her as “one of the coolest girls I’ve ever met” and said they still “hang out all the time” after the split.
Cazzie David (2016-2018)
Pete dated Cazzie, the daughter of comedian Larry David, for two years and made several public appearances together. He dated Ariana Grande shortly after they broke up.
After their breakup, Cazzie wrote an emotional essay about their breakup, revealing that Pete ended things over text.
Ariana Grande (2018)
The same month he divorced Cazzie, Pete began dating singer Ariana. The relationship moved quickly and the couple got engaged after just a few weeks. They broke up in November, with Pete admitting he “knew it was over” after Ariana mourned the death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller. Ariana later mentioned Pete in her hit single “Thank U, Next.”
Kate Beckinsale (2019)
Pete then moved on to actress Kate Beckinsale, who was twenty years his senior. They were first linked to that January and dated to at least April. Pete admitted that the couple was “never bothered” by the age difference. A source told In contact that Pete was “an exciting breath of fresh air” to Kate.
Margaret Medusa (2019)
Shortly after parting ways with Kate, Pete was linked to actress Margaret Qually. A source told U.S: ‘They’ve been seeing each other for a few months and Margaret is very excited about him.’ However, it didn’t appear to be a serious romance as the pair were only supposed to date for two months between August and October 2019.
Kaia Gerber (2019-2020)
Pete quickly transitioned from Margaret to dating model Kaia Gerber, Cindy Crawford’s daughter. The pair were seen holding hands a few times, but the whirlwind romance came to an end after just three months in January 2020.
Soon after, he sought treatment at the Sierra Tucson Treatment Center in Arizona.
When asked about their breakup during an interview with Charlamagne Tha God, he confirmed they dated for “a few months” but said she was “very young” and he was “going through a lot.”
Phoebe Dynevor (2021)
Bridgerton star Phoebe and Pete confirmed their romance in April 2021 when they were spotted out for a walk in Stoke.
Rumors circulated about their relationship status in the weeks leading up to the sighting. A source told People that Pete “tells friends he’s serious about Phoebe.”
Speculation about the relationship began in March when Pete was photographed visiting Phoebe’s native Manchester, while she visited New York, where he lives, in February.
They split in August after trying to make things work remotely, which put a strain on their relationship.
Kim Kardashian (2021-2022)
The spark of Pete’s relationship with Kim Kardashian started when they kissed on camera during her hosting debut on SNL in October 2021.
The couple had secret meetings throughout the year, including private dinners and a trip to a movie after Pete rented a theater at his favorite Staten Island multiplex.
The lovebirds became red carpet official in 2022 and were practically inseparable, with Pete eventually appearing on her new reality series The Kardashians.
But the two were the subject of harassing social media posts from Kim’s ex Kanye West throughout much of their relationship.
While the two were as loved as ever, they reportedly split on August 5 after being kept apart by their diverging work schedules.
