‘They don’t know how to handle a strong woman so they tear you down’: Emily Ratajkowski says she ‘attracts the worst men’ – after Pete Davidson split
The Blurred Lines beauty, 31, said that it’s ‘f**ked up’ that men say that want a ‘strong woman’ but don’t actually know how to deal with it so ‘tear her down’ as a result.
While she didn’t name any of her partners directly, Emily split from SNL star Pete, 29, last month after a few weeks of dating.

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

‘They start to tear you down, and then you’re back to square one. And it’s so f**ked up and unfair, because I feel like a lot of men who truly think they want a strong woman actually don’t know how to handle it and… what it means for their own identity.’
‘I said to 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 is trying to prove it through me. That is not what I want.’
