Neighbors bash Emily Ratajkowski, millionaire hubby for ‘dodging rent’

People are getting ugly when it comes to model Emily Ratajkowski and her filmmaker husband allegedly not paying rent on their Noho loft thanks to a legal loophole meant to protect struggling artists.

Neighbors of the model were furious Sunday in the wake of a Post report that she and her hubby, filmmaker Sebastian Bear-McClard, who are worth millions of dollars, have stiffed their landlord, claiming protection under the state’s Loft Law, according to the building’s owner.

Bear-McClard, who began subletting the pad in 2013, hasn’t paid a penny of the $4,900-a-month rent since his lease expired in 2017, the landlord has said.

Ratajkowski and her husband have been married since February 2018, and she now lives with him there.

The landlord says he has been cheated out of $120,000 since the 2017 lease expired.

“It’s pathetic,” said 62-year-old musician Joseph Vera, who lives near the couple’s home at 49 Bleecker St. “The idea that one of these wealthy individuals is exploiting the system to save what, for him, is chump change, is a kick in the a– to the people who made Bleecker Street what it is.”

Another artist, who lives at 49 Bleecker, called for their eviction.

“It’s really unfair… This guy (Bear-McClard) is a double-insult to our street. He’s a moneyman who can easily pay his rent and just chooses not to,” said the neighbor, who wouldn’t give her name.

“I hope he gets evicted as soon as possible so that his apartment can go to someone more deserving — maybe someone with a little humility.”

Detractors also took to Instagram to bash the stunner.

“Tell your millionaire husband to pay rent and stop using loopholes meant for low income families,” wrote nevekizm under a selfie of the model posted Friday.

Another user raged on a selfie of the couple posted Feb. 14, “Can y’all teach me how to ripoff my landlord? I’m tired of paying rent when I could be using my money to take lavish vacations.”

Michael Kozek, lawyer for Bear-McClard, said in Sunday’s Post, “Mr. McClard is fighting to save his home, which he has lived in for years.

“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.”
