Emily Ratajkowski Is "Not Thinking About Guys" After That Harry Styles Kiss
If there are any two people on this planet capable of breaking the Internet, it's Emily Ratajkowski and Harry Styles. Now, the duo's alleged romance is sending the Twittersphere into a full meltdown.
Dating rumors first emerged after the Daily Mail published video footage of the stars making out in Tokyo. According to some reports, the singer and the My Body author have long been acquainted with each other—even when Styles was still linked to now ex-girlfriend Olivia Wilde.
Ahead, we break down the timeline of their romance thus far. Watch this space for updates.
April 7, 2023: Emily addresses that viral kiss.
In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, the model gives an update on her current dating life following her split from her baby's father, Sebastian Bear-McClard.
EmRata—who has since gone on highly-publicized dates with comedians Pete Davidson and Eric André, and was most recently seen passionately kissing Harry Styles in Tokyo—tells the paper, "I’m definitely still not thinking about guys."
"There’s a million insane, inaccurate things about my relationships [that are said]," she says in a voice note she sent from Japan. Then, alluding to her kiss with Styles, she adds with a laugh, "Although, yeah. You know, sometimes things just happen."
March 29, 2023: Harry is "thrilled" about hooking up with EmRata.
Sources for People and Us Weekly explain how the two are currently navigating their potential romance,
"She is having fun and enjoys the attention from guys," an insider tells People. "She hooked up with Harry, but they are not in touch every day. Emily is interested in seeing him again though."
Meanwhile, "Harry has always been very attracted to Emily," a source tells Us Weekly. He's also feeling "thrilled" about "hooking up" with her.
Still, the Us insider reaffirms that Ratajkowski isn't looking for a long-term commitment in her dating life right now. "Emily isn’t looking for anything serious," the insider explains. "She’s just trying to live her best single life and have fun."
March 2023: They're reportedly "having fun."

After nearly two years of dating, Styles and Wilde reportedly take a break from their relationship.
"He's still touring and is now going abroad. She is focusing on her kids and her work in L.A. It's a very amicable decision," a source tells People. "They're still very close friends."
A friend of Styles and Wilde also tells the outlet, "Right now, they have different priorities that are keeping them apart. The public pressure on them has been difficult. They've had ups and downs throughout the relationship."
October 2022: Emily confirms that she's dating again.
During an interview for Harper's BAZAAR's November cover story, the model opens up about her dating life since splitting from Sebastian Bear-McClard.
"To use the TikTok phrase, I was a bit of a 'pick-me girl' in the sense that I wasn’t very good at deciding what I liked," she says. "I really wanted to be chosen. 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. 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.'"
July 2022: Emily is spotted attending Harry's Love on Tour concert in Paris, alongside his girlfriend, Olivia Wilde.

In the summer of 2022, reports begin to emerge that the My Body author is filing for divorce from her husband of four years, Sebastian Bear-McClard. The two share one child, a son named Sylvester Apollo.
She seems to confirm the rumors in August, when she is photographed out and about without her engagement ring or wedding band.
