Emily Ratajkowski said she wants to move past the negative stigma of divorce, especially concerning younger women.

The model and podcast host, who is divorcing her husband, Sebastian Bear-McClard, discussed the separation in a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight.

Ahead of the Victoria’s Secret World Tour show on Wednesday, Ratajkowski said: “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.”

Ratajowski, 32, added that she hoped to “spread a little positivity” in the perception of divorce.

In April, the “My Body” author spoke with Times columnist Amy Kaufman about her divorce from Bear-McClard — with whom she shares son Sylvester — and why she is hesitant to say too much.

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

Ratajkowski and Bear-McClard began dating and wed in 2018. They welcomed their son in 2021. She filed for divorce in September, spawning rumors that Bear-McClard had cheated on her.

Earlier this year, Variety reported that Bear-McClard, a producer on “Uncut Gems,” had been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women.

Speaking with ET, Ratajkowski praised young women for taking the steps to leave a difficult relationship.

“Deciding to leave a relationship despite the financial hardship, despite what it’s going to mean for your kids, everything, is really brave,” she said. “I want women to feel better about it.”
