Watch Ben Affleck's Bold Response After This Woman Allegedly Rejected Him on a Dating App

Yahoo Entertainment 04 May, 2021 - 11:00pm

All eyes are on Ben Affleck's love life after he was seen hanging out at Jennifer Lopez's house on Friday, April 30. Though a source told E! News that the ex-fiancés are just friends, that didn't stop one TikTok user from reminiscing on a time she herself almost hooked up with the Justice League actor.

User Nivine Jay posted a hilarious video on Monday, May 3, explaining that they met on the elite celebrity dating app Raya—but she thought he was a catfish. 

"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," she wrote, along with four skull emojis. She added the viral song "Waking Up in the Morning" by Real Housewives of New Jersey star Gia Giudice over the clip.

Nivine, who played a sorority girl in Neighbors and is the author of the love story Cry Baby, then inserted the selfie video that Ben allegedly sent her after she rejected him. 

The double Oscar winner appeared in a red T-shirt with messy hair, as he told her, "Nivine, why did you unmatch me? It's me!" He ended the video with a subtle smirk. (E! News has not independently verified the authenticity of the claims and video).

Fellow TikTok users were understandably shook by the story, with one writing, "girl u better bring that to all job interviews."

Another commented, "The way he said 'its me' [sic] my soul would have left my body." Nivine wrote back to share her own reaction to the mishap, saying, "Confirmed my soul did leave my body." She captioned the video, "Sorry Ben." 

Sorry Ben ???? ##raya ##benaffleck ##dating ##fyp

When contacted by E! News, Nivine said she meant no ill will toward Ben when posting the video.

"I'm seeing a lot of comments calling him a creep and l don't think that's fair. l wasn't making fun of him in the video," she explained. "l was making fun of myself for thinking he was a catfish and it was just supposed to be funny."

Since Ben's divorce from Jennifer Garner in 2018, he dated Saturday Night Live producer Lindsay Shookus and, more recently, Knives Out star Ana de Armas until news of their split broke in January 2021.

It's unclear when his supposed Raya rejection went down. However, he has recently sparked dating rumors by reuniting with his former fiancé, J.Lo, after she ended things with Yankees alum Alex Rodriguez. Not only did Bennifer meet up at J.Lo's mansion last week, but they also both attended the charity concert, VAX LIVE, on May 2. 

A source shared with E! News that both stars were backstage, but didn't interact at the event. "It was all very professional and she was focused on her performance," according to the insider. "They didn't draw attention to themselves in the backstage area."

Another source told E! News last week that Ben, 48, and Jennifer, 51, are purely longtime friends.

But the father of three isn't the only A-lister to turn to the apps in his time of need. Other celebs that have searched for love on Raya include Drew Barrymore, Channing Tatum, Demi Lovato and Amy Schumer.

E! News has reached out to Ben's rep for comment.

Mirror Online 04 May, 2021 - 11:00pm

A video of Ben Affleck pursuing a model has emerged after she turned him down on the celebrity dating app Raya.

His short video to the woman began trending when her TikTok video about unmatching him went viral.

The woman, named Nivine Jay, explained in the clip that she unmatched with the Batman V Superman star as she thought his profile was fake.

"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," she captioned the video.

She added the viral song "Waking Up in the Morning" by Real Housewives of New Jersey star Gia Giudice over the clip.

In the selfie video he sent, the star is speaking directly to the camera and tried to confirm it really was him on the app.

"Nivine, why did you unmatch me? It's me," he said.

Mirror have contacted representatives of Ben Affleck for comment.

Despite the pair - who famously dated between 2002 and 2004 - spending time together, in recent days, they are "strictly friends" according to TMZ.

The outlet report that the former flames share a platonic relationship at the moment but added that who knows what the future holds for the genetically blessed duo.

Photographers captured Ben emerging from Jennifer’s white Escalade SUV last Thursday – raising eyebrows and whispers of a reunion.

It was reported at the time that the pair had been "spending time together in Los Angeles" thanks to covert meetups.

A source revealed to Page Six: "Security picks him up at a nearby location and drops him off after spending a few hours at her house."

Following his relationship with JLo, Ben went on to marry Jennifer Garner in 2005 with whom he shares three children - but the pair ended up divorcing in 2018.

He most recently was dating Knives Out actress Ana de Armas between 2019 and January this year.

Celebrities caught sliding into strangers' DMs after Ben Affleck's cringe video to model

Irish Mirror 04 May, 2021 - 11:00pm

A video of Ben Affleck pursuing a model on Instagram recently emerged after she turned him down on the celeb dating app Raya.

The woman, named Nivine Jay, explained in the clip that she unmatched with the Batman V Superman star as she thought his profile was fake.

He proceeded to send her a selfie video on Instagram asking her why she unmatched him when it was really him.

Over the years, celebrities have been caught sliding into strangers DMs flirting and asking for dates.

Culprits include stars like James Franco, Jack Grealish and Justin Bieber.

Meanwhile, stars like Jim Carrey opted for creating love letters for their favourite actresses.

Back in 2014, it was revealed that Pineapple Express star James Franco propositioned a schoolgirl on Instagram after she took a selfie with him after one of his Broadway plays.

After she shared the selfie with the star on her Instagram, he messaged her asking her age, if she had a boyfriend and if he should "rent a room" at her hotel.

He even sent her selfies in order to prove to her it was really him pursuing her.

Lucy Clode was 17 at the time and denied his strange advances, sharing the conversation with people online.

The 127 hours actor later apologised for "bad judgement" after flirting with the teenager.

Aston Villa playmaker Jack Grealish got caught out for trying to slide into the DMs of a former Love Island contestant.

He had apparently messaged model Natalia Zoppa a waving hand emoji.

He was called out as the former Love Islander has a boyfriend who wasn't too happy about it.

Hass Saleh, Natalia's boyfriend, said in a TikTok video: “As if today couldn’t get any weirder, the best player in the Premier League tried to chat up my missus.”

Natalia competed in the 2020 series of the ITV2 series and boasts more than 220,000 followers on Instagram, as well as plenty on her OnlyFans page.

Former EastEnders star had no patience when it came to the national coronavirus lockdown and attempted to meet up with a woman despite restrictions.

The 42-year-old has been messaging someone he matched with on a dating app about getting together for a date even though the nation was in lockdown.

The woman, named Christy, exclusively told the Mirror in January that the actor had matched with her on numerous dating apps before messaging her directly on Instagram.

Dean, who played Robbie Jackson on the BBC soap, began his DMs to the 30-year-old by wishing her a "Happy belated new year" and as soon as she responded he asked her: "When we meeting lol"

However, she was disappointed that he was willing to breach the rules.

In what feels like a lifetime ago, Justin Bieber once DM'ed a gym's Instagram page asking for details about one of their clients.

The woman, called Jessica Gober, took to Twitter in 2017 to reveal that Justin asked the establishment who she was.

"Who is that girl," he wrote to them along with a heart emoji. "? In ur latest post."

She tweeted: "Did this actually just happen... lmao Justin Bieber just messaged the gym that I work at and asked who I was hahahaha WTF"

Their latest post was a video of Jessica promoting an energy drink at the gym.

She took to the comment section to clarify she was already in a relationship.

Rapper Iggy Azalea recently took to TikTok to expose the celebrities who DM'ed her asking for sex and one night stands.

She shared screenshots of the messages from her Insta but censored out their names and details.

One unknown star, who has 27million followers on Instagram, made an X-rated offer.

While another, with 6.2million fans, wrote to her: "You need a Pooh Bear, I'll eat dat thing like a jar of honey."

Another even offered her £15,000 to simply have a conversation with them.

The Fancy rapper shared the screenshots - with the names blurred out - while dancing in front of them in a clip on TikTok.

Never forget about that one time comedy legend Jim Carrey filmed a video of himself discussing his love for Emma Stone.

In 2011, a then 50-year-old Jim posted a video about the actress (who was 23 at the time) and called her "all the way beautiful".

He even said he wanted to have "chubby little freckle-faced kids" with her.

The Mask actor said in the video: “I just wanted to let you know that I think you’re all the way beautiful. Not just pretty, but, you know, smart and kindhearted.

"And if I were a lot younger, I would marry you, and we would have chubby little freckled faced kids.”

However, Emma insisted then that she was flattered.

Ben Affleck Goes Viral on TikTok After Influencer Posts Video He Allegedly Sent Her on a Dating App

Yahoo Entertainment 04 May, 2021 - 02:00pm

TikTok user Nivine Jay revealed that Ben Affleck slid into her DMs after she unmatched him on the dating app Raya. Keep scrolling to watch the ballsy video that the actor allegedly sent to her.

"It's incredibly freeing to stop worrying about what others think of you," Ireland Baldwin wrote in the caption of her latest impromptu bikini shoot

“Why would you unmatch me? It’s me” Ever think you’ve been catfished by a celebrity? Ben Affleck went to the DMs to set the record straight about being “unmatched” on Raya. TikTok user @NivineJay is going viral for a video she posted in which Affleck appears to confront her for rejecting him on the private dating app for members of the entertainment industry. In a TikTok captioned “Sorry Ben,” Jay begins the video with text reading, “Thinking of the time I matched with Ben Affleck on Raya and thought it was fake so I unmatched him and he sent me this video on Instagram.” What followed was Affleck’s plea. “Nivine, why did you unmatch me?” a puzzled Affleck asks, “It’s me.” @nivinejay Sorry Ben 🥺🥱 #raya #benaffleck #dating #fyp ♬ original sound – Amir Yass Yea, the “Justice League” star has a slight smirk on his face, but the look in his eyes and tone in his voice does make you wonder if he’s maybe a little hurt. The video has already racked up nearly 1 million views and thousands of comments since its May 3 posting. Some comments are speculating as to whether the video is actually from Cameo, an app that allows users to request personal videos from their favorite celebs. Affleck isn’t listed as an option on Cameo’s website, so that shoots that theory down. TikTok isn’t the only evidence that Affleck seems to have love on the brain. Over the weekend he was spotted reconnecting with ex-fiance Jennifer Lopez following her recent break-up from Alex Rodriguez. With Affleck also single (he and girlfriend/Dunkin’ run buddy Ana de Armas split in January), the pics led fans to speculate — or maybe just hope — that “Bennifer” was back together at long last. Unfortunately, an insider reported to Page Six that “They are friends … they’ve never not been.” Alas, Affleck has been swiped left on IRL. Hopefully his next Raya match will stay matched.

Billie Eilish’s uncharacteristically sultry, cleavage-bearing photoshoot for this month’s Vogue, timed to introduce her new, blonder look to the world for the release of forthcoming album Happier Than Ever, has inspired a rash of internet opinion. Some say she has betrayed her young female fans by abandoning her baggy-jumpered, green-haired two-fingers to normative patriarchal beauty standards; others say it’s her body, her choice, and no one’s business but her own; while still others accuse Vogue of pressuring her into the look. (Although in the interview, Eilish stresses that the shoot was entirely her idea.) At heart, this is a debate about the female body and who derives power from it: is the woman with the confidence to show it off and enjoy the sensation of being alive in her own skin, or is it the men who see it, salivate over it, and treat women more like objects and less like people because of it? The career of Betty Brosmer, Californian pin-up and supermodel of the Fifties who Eilish cites as an inspiration for her new look, might provide one answer. Known for her exaggerated hourglass figure (she was nicknamed “the impossible waist”), photographs of Brosmer papered the walls of bedrooms and offices across America when Marilyn Monroe was still chorus dancing in small-budget studio comedies. She was born in Pasadena but got her first modelling gig in New York, for the department stores Sears & Roebuck, at the age of 13. Soon, she caught the attention of celebrated pin-up photographers Alberto Vargas and Earl Moran, and, two years later in 1950, she moved permanently to New York with her aunt to spend her teenage years modelling for men’s magazines, including Modern Man, Photo, and People Today. Her image appeared in advertisements everywhere from milk cartons to billboards, and on the covers of popular pulp romance novels; she won numerous beauty contests, including Miss Television, for which she was photographed on top of the Empire State building for the cover of TV Guide.

Late last Friday, Page Six broke the earth-shattering news that Jennifer Lopez has been "spending time" with her ex-fiancé, Ben Affleck, after announcing her split from her more recent fiancé, Alex Rodriguez. Tragically, there have not been hourly updates on this development, although Page Six reported Monday that Affleck was in attendance when J.Lo performed "Sweet Caroline" at "Vax Live: The Concert to Reunite the World" on Sunday night. Lopez said she picked the song because her mom sang it to her when she was a baby — though "Sweet Caroline" is famously played during the eighth inning of every Red Sox home game. Affleck, of course, is a huuuge Red Sox fan; what's more, Lopez used to attend Sox games with Affleck when they were dating. Coincidence? What is going on! Read more at Page Six.
