Now, why did she expose him like this?
A young woman on TikTok is going viral after sharing a video message she allegedly received from Ben Affleck on a dating app and everyone is asking; “Why would she post that?!”
Nivine Jay is the lady who shared the video mash-up of her reacting to Affleck’s message on Monday. Not too much is known about Jay as of yet, but from the looks of her socials, she appears to be a co-host of the Swipe Left podcast and an Instagram influencer.
Jay claims that the 48-year-old star sent her the selfie clip on Instagram after she unmatched him on dating app, Raya. The platform has been growing in popularity over the last year and is known for featuring celebrities, influencers, and a number of public figures.
Nivine wrote about her and Afflecks’ odd exchange on TikTok writing:
“Thinking of the time I matched with Ben Affleck on Raya and thought it was fake so I unmatched him and he sent me a video on Instagram.”
It is unclear when the alleged exchange happened but the video cuts to Affleck where he is heard saying, “Nivine, why did you unmatch me? It’s me.”
In 2019, a source close to Affleck told Page Six that the actor had been using the dating platform in search of a “real partner.”
“He is private and is in a good space right now,” the source continued. “He has his kids and is focusing on work, but is ready to be in love again.”
However, in February of 2020, the Good Will Hunting star revealed that he wasn’t looking for love “on any websites.”
“I know people who are on them and they have a fun time, but not me,” he shared during an interview on Good Morning America.
“I would love to have a relationship that was deeply meaningful and one to which I could be deeply committed,” he added.
While Affleck has remained silent on his dating life currently, he did make headlines recently for spinning the block with his ex, Jennifer Lopez just last week. According to reports, paparazzi caught Ben in an SUV on his way to J.Lo’s crib several times recently. Lopez reportedly arranged for her security detail to fetch the Oscar winner from the parking lot of a different pick-up location outside of the Hotel Bel-Air.
Affleck was previously married to actress Jennifer Garner from 2005 to 2018. The former couple shares three children together: Violet, 15, Seraphina Rose, 12, and Samuel, 9.
