  • TikTok star Nivine Jay claims she blocked Ben Affleck on Raya, only for him to message her on Instagram confirming his identity.
  • "Nivine, why did you unmatch me? It's me!" he says in the clip she alleges he sent to her.
  • The news comes after the actor was spotted at ex-fiancé Jennifer Lopez's house following her split from Alex Rodriguez.

TikTok star Nivine Jay says she once matched with Ben Affleck on the dating app Raya, but blocked him because she thought he was a catfish.

In a video shared with her followers, she wrote: "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 [sic]."

She added the clip she alleges the Justice League star sent her in response.

"Nivine, why did you unmatch me? It's me!" he says in the clip.

Replying to a comment on the video, Nivine joked: "Confirmed my soul did leave my body."


The video comes shortly after the star was spotted hanging out at ex Jennifer Lopez's house in photos obtained by Page Six. The singer, of course, recently split from Alex Rodriguez, fueling rumours the famous ex-fiancés may be rekindling their romance. They were also both seen backstage at the pre-taping of Global Citizen's Vax Live concert over the weekend.

A source tells E! News, however, the two are "just friends".

"It was all very professional and she was focused on her performance," an insider said of the two at Vax Live. "They didn't draw attention to themselves in the backstage area."
