Emily Ratajkowski’s Millionaire Husband Is Using A Legal Loophole Meant For Struggling Artists To Get Out Of Paying Rent
It’s a sad state of affairs when a model with biggish titties like Emily Ratajkowski simply cannot catch a break in this world. Poor thing is too stacked to be taken seriously as an actress, and had to stand next to Robin Thicke and bounce said burdensome mammaries (against her better judgement mind you!) for a check in the Blurred Lines video! Emily’s latest cross to bear, according to the New York Post, is being threatened with eviction from her NoHo loft in Manhattan because her millionaire husband, film producer Sebastian Bear-McClard, doesn’t think he should have to pay rent like everybody else. This is the same cheap bastard that had his best friend, noted joke-thief The Fat Jew, officiate their wedding. At city hall no less!
The Post reports that Sebastian has been subletting a 1,100 sq ft apartment in NoHo since 2013. But the lease expired in 2017, and Seb’s been using a “legal loophole meant to protect struggling artists” as an excuse for not paying a dime in rent since then.
Filmmaker Sebastian Bear-McClard, who’s worth an estimated $12 million, has allegedly stiffed the landlord out of $120,000 for the unit at 49 Bleecker St. since 2017, claiming protection under the state’s Loft Law, a building rep said.
“Here is a prime example, in prime NYC real estate, where an uber-wealthy celebrity couple and tenant can take advantage and exploit a law that was intended for truly struggling artists and low-income families in need of affordable housing,” said Carolyn Daly, spokeswoman for a coalition of loft building owners that includes 49 Bleecker.
Both the building’s landlord, and the guy Seb’s been subletting from, are pissed and want him gone. Seb’s been able to freeload for so long because of a 1982 state law that was enacted to protect “artists and other low income tenants” who “lived illegally in commercial loft spaces” against eviction. The residence at 49 Bleecker doesn’t currently have a “certificate of occupancy” and therefore residents fall under this protection.
According to The Cut, Seb and Emily’s neighbors are also unhappy with the arrangement. One said “it’s pathetic!”, and an actual artist who lives in the building called him a “double insult” to Bleecker St. and hopes he gets evicted. However, Seb’s lawyer says he’s fighting fairly to “save his home” because “he’s an artist. Born and raised New Yorker and a child of artists who themselves fought to save their homes, including under the Loft Law”. Yo, the struggle is real. And it’s spectacular.
These people are struggling artists dammit! Anyone with two eyeballs can see that. Let them do their art in peace!
