When Nivine Jay matched with Ben Affleck on Raya, a dating app, she was sure it was either a fake profile or she was being catfished. As a result, she unmatched with the profile.
However, it later turned out it was the real deal. Affleck later sent her a video on Instagram, asking her why she unmatched him. He claimed that it was indeed him and that his profile was the real deal. Jay even took to TikTok to make a video about it, joking about the incident.
Who is Nivine Jay?
Nivine Jay is an actress and an author who has written the book, 'Cry Baby'. The book's synopsis states: "Cry Baby takes you on a journey through the five stages of grief that follows after an unexpected break up between a twenty something year old and the love of her life. Anyone that has suffered through a breakup will attest that the intense pain of a failed relationship can be debilitating, especially at first. Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and the long-awaited Acceptance stage. Cry Baby is a love story ending in the form of short poems."
Not much is known about Jay, however, she is active on social media platforms such as Instagram. Her IMDb page has two movies listed to her name, 'The Donut Split' in 2014 and 'Space Juice' in 2021.
What app was she using?
Jay and Affleck came across each other's profile on Raya, a celebrity-friendly dating app. As per the app's website, Raya is a "membership-based community for networking, dating and making friends". Some of the celebs previously spotted on the app are Cara Delevigne, Drew Barrymore, John Mayer, Kelly Osbourne and Trevor Noah.
However, to join Raya, one has to go through an extensive vetting process. As reported by Business Insider, out of the 100,000 people on the waiting list, only 8 per cent of the applicants are approved.
Affleck has been spotted using Raya before
As reported by Page Six back in 2019, Affleck was on the app in the hope of finding someone special. “He seems to want a real partner and is not looking to date a celebrity. He is private and is in a good space right now,” a source said back then. “He has his kids and is focusing on work, but is ready to be in love again.”
As reported by InTouch, actress Rebel Wilson spotted him on Raya as well. But in February 2020 on 'Good Morning America', Affleck claimed that he was not on any dating apps or websites. "I am not on any websites, I am on no dating apps, not Tinder, Grindr, Brindr, Bumble, Humble," the actor said. "I am not on any of them. I don’t have any judgment about people who are — I know people who are on them and have a fun time, but that’s not me. I would love to have a relationship that is deeply meaningful and one to which I could be deeply committed." However, as per Jay's TikTok video, looks like Affleck is ready to find love again.
