Ben Affleck and more celebrities who have turned to online dating apps

Although it is normal for celebrities to end up dating other celebrities, here are famous people who wanted to give the rest of us a chance by using dating apps!

Ben Affleck's experience on Raya, an online dating app for elite people, has gone viral since actress and tiktoker Nivine Jay revealed on May 3 that the actor allegedly sent her a private message after she rejected it through the application. 

Nivine Jay says she didn't match him because she thought it was a fake profile, but shortly thereafter the Hollywood star sent him a sassy video response via Instagram. Although many called Ben Affleck, 48, creepy, he didn’t respond to these allegations.

In the video, shared on Jay's TikTok, Ben Affleck, who is 6 feet 4 inches tall, is seen tousled looking at the camera and saying "Nivine, why didn't you match me? It's me!" The story has gone viral, although its veracity has not been proven. "Sorry Ben," she wrote about the video.

The actor’s appearance in dating apps comes after his breakup from Ana de Armas, whom he met filming Deep Water, after ex wife Jennifer Garner and John Miller get back together and after a source told Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have been spending time together  in Los Angeles although the former couple split up back in January 2004. So Ben is currently single!
