Harry Styles and Emily Ratajkowski’s public makeout session on the streets of Tokyo is burnt into my brain — and likely everyone else’s who has been online in the past 48 hours. The main takeaway? If you look like EmRata, you can pull a man in a North Face puffer.

Following the unlikely duo’s PDA, the internet was full of reports and rumors, including that Ratajkowski and Styles had had a threesome with Styles’ ex-girlfriend, Olivia Wilde, who Ratajkowski attended Styles show in Paris with in mid-2022.

But after @DeuxMoi posted multiple blind items about this, a further source clarified saying the report was actually untrue and that reality is sadder: Wilde is allegedly feeling pretty hurt that someone she thought was a friend would hook up with her recent ex (who this anonymous DMer alleges she’d been back in contact with.) Wilde and Ratajkowski were photographed together as recently as two weeks ago at Vanity Fair’s Oscars afterparty.

But according to People, we shouldn’t be all that surprised about this turn of events. A source told the outlet that Styles and Ratajkowski have been in contact for “a while.” “Harry and Emily know each other. They have been friendly for a while,” the source said, also describing Ratajkowski and Wilde’s relationship as “friendly.”

Furthermore, another DeuxMoi tidbit alleged that Styles followed Ratajkowski on Instagram the same week his relationship with Wilde ended in November 2022. Styles, of course, has previously made his admiration of Ratajkowski no secret. During a 2014 interview, he dubbed the model and author his “celebrity crush.”

Meanwhile, Ratajkowski has been open about dating post-divorce, most recently saying on an episode of her podcast, High Low, “I’m newly single, I’m like, I don’t know, if I ever want a relationship again.” Let’s see if Styles changes this and returns to his rightful role as stepzaddy.
