Emily Ratajkowski Says She's "Waiting for the Right Girl to Date"
In the latest 🤯 celeb dating news, Harry Styles and Emily Ratajkowski were spotted making out in the streets of Tokyo on Saturday, March 25.
According to photos and video obtained by The Daily Mail, the 29-year-old pop superstar and 31-year-old model were seen *passionately* locking lips outside a venue, by a van. The pair is seen holding hands, and at one point, EmRata wraps her arms around Harry’s neck as he grabs onto her waist. The outlet reports that the pair were “dancing with each other” alongside a group of people.
Harry was in Tokyo at the time for his Love On Tour concert series, although it’s unclear if EmRata was at one of the shows. The “As It Was” singer split from ex-girlfriend Olivia Wilde in November 2022, and four months later, was rumored to be dating someone new. One insider told The Mirror, per The Daily Mail, in February 2023 that “Harry is seeing someone” and is “going to great lengths to keep her identity quiet after the circus surrounding his relationship with Olivia.” Is EmRata the mystery girl?
The supermodel has been linked to comedians Pete Davidson and Eric André following her divorce from ex-husband Sebastian Bear-McClard in September 2022. But the flirtationships have fizzled out since.

April 22, 2023: EmRata Says She “Feels Bad” for Olivia Wilde
Although we’re all still reeling from the Harry and EmRata romance rumors, the supermodel recently admitted that she never expected her streamy make-out sesh with the singer to go viral.
“I didn’t expect this to happen, but I think, in general, there’s a reason certain celebrities live in LA, hire security, don’t go to public restaurants,” she said in an April 20 interview with Spanish Vogue, per Page Six. “It’s very bizarre to have certain experiences and then have the whole world know and comment on them.”
EmRata then reflected on what it’s like to be single since her divorce, and said that the attention her relationship status draws is “very strange.”
“Not that I’m surprised, but it’s a tiny slice of my life,” she added. “Most of my life is focused on my son and my work. But I guess these issues don’t inspire the same flashy headlines. The invasion of private aspects is very hard for me.”
Among the various headlines is speculation that EmRata and Harry’s ex, Olivia Wilde, are in an alleged feud since the now-famous kiss. But in her interview with Spanish Vogue, Emily seemingly shut down the rift rumors. “That’s how it is. Just an unfortunate issue,” she said. While discussing how “frustrating” it is to see the “attack narrative” women face on social media, EmRata brought up Olivia.
“In case you ask me about it, it’s more of the same,” she said. “I feel bad for Olivia [Wilde], because she has had to suffer this situation on several occasions.”
