She is focusing on her kids and her work in L.A.,” a source said. “It’s a very amicable decision.” The Don’t Worry Darling star and director are still “very very close friends.” However, their careers and family life are in two distinct places. “Right now, they have different priorities that are keeping them apart,” another source dished.
According to an insider quoted in Us Weekly, Olivia was “still very much upset about the breakup” and that she was trying to “move on” by taking a girl’s trip. “Olivia thought going on vacation would allow her to decompress,” the insider said. This sentiment was backed up by a source quoted by People, who said: “The break has been difficult for Olivia. They have had some issues, but Olivia thought they were gonna work through it all.

Since the news broke, people close to Olivia and Harry have been providing reasons for their relationship breakdown. “The public pressure on them has been difficult,” a friend of the ex-couple told People. “They’ve had ups and downs throughout the relationship.” The main tabloid allegation that revolved around the ex-couple was that Olivia cheated on her then-fiance Jason Sudeikis with Harry while filming her second directorial project.

All that matters to you is what’s real, and what you love, and who you love.”
Meanwhile, Em Rata had just recently divorced her husband of 4 years Sebastian Bear-McClard. She filed for divorce in Manhattan Supreme Court Thursday and noted it was contested, meaning there are issues to be litigated. Page Six first reported the divorce on September 9, 2022 and news of the split was first reported in July 2022. Sources close to the couple reported to the outlet that the split was due to Bear-McClard’s infidelity. “Yeah, he cheated,” the insider told Page Six. “He’s a serial cheater. It’s gross. He’s a dog.” A week after the news of her divorce, Ratajkowski was photographed in New York City in a baseball cap with the French quote: “Ce n’est importe quoi,” which loosely translates to “It doesn’t bother me” in English.
The model has since been casual dating and grabbed the attention of Brad Pitt, Pete Davidson, Eric Andre and more. She talked about how the paparazzi had “screwed up” dating for her. “I’ve gone on dates where there’s been no pictures, and I’m like, ‘All good’, ” she said. “And then there’s been times where literally the first time that I’ve met someone, we spent 2 hours together, and there’s pictures on the Internet.”
Em Rata defended her friendship with Olivia “In the past year with Amber Heard and Olivia Wilde and the craziness of putting them in this box as if they’re monsters or witches. . .There’s nuance to it, but when you see the way that the whole world reacts to women, it’s really hard not to want to go to an extreme side of it,” Ratajkowsk told Elle UK. “I feel very protective.”
“I really wanted to be chosen,” the model shared with the magazine. “It was hard for me to go on a date with someone and think about how much I did or didn’t like them. I would have been thinking about how they were perceiving me, what it meant, what they wanted from me, what it meant about my self-worth. I don’t have that anymore,” she said. “So now it’s really fun to go to dinner with someone and be like, ‘Cool. I really enjoyed these parts of them. I really didn’t like these other parts.’”
My Body is a profoundly personal exploration of feminism, sexuality, and power, of men’s treatment of women and women’s rationalizations for accepting that treatment. These essays chronicle moments from Ratajkowski’s life while investigating the culture’s fetishization of girls and female beauty, its obsession with and contempt for women’s sexuality, the perverse dynamics of the fashion and film industries, and the gray area between consent and abuse.
