God, I love TikTok. Such a tea-spilling goldmine. Whether or not the tea that is spilled is true is another story, but it’s sure as shit fun to read and speculate, now isn’t it? The latest spicy TikTok involves actor Ben Affleck and a woman claiming to have matched with him on a celebrity dating app, Raya (I say claiming bc we have to, legally, but… the evidence is pretty damning).
Actress Nivine Jay took to the video sharing app to write, “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.”
Affleck then allegedly tracked down the gal on Instagram and sent her a video where he says: “Nivine, why did you unmatch me? It’s me.”
Catch the clip below:
Wondering what the actual fuck Raya is? Basically it’s a dating app for famous and semi famous people where verified celebs sign up to meet the one.
Other famous folk on Raya include Demi Lovato, who signed up after she split with ex-boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama in 2016, Channing Tatum, who became a member after his split from British singer Jessie J, and queen Lindsay Lohan.
The timing of all of this is v. interesting considering Ben Affleck broke up with his actress girlfriend Ana de Armas not too long ago and just over the weekend, he was spotted hanging with his iconic ex, the newly single Jennifer Lopez.
“They have spent time together in L.A. over the past week,” a source confirmed of Bennifer to People. “They have a lot of love for each other. They have always admired each other.”
In case you’re rusty on your noughties trivia, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez were a big thing between 2002 and 2004 and their ship name was Bennifer (a combo of Ben and Jennifer, obvs).
“They are friends,” another insider told People. “They have always been friends and they have seen each other through the years.”
Wonder if he and J.Lo reconnected after spotting each other on Raya, then verifying if they were speaking to the real deal via a cringe video?
