Ben Affleck might not be seriously dating Katie Cherry at this time, but he has admitted to dating people online recently. That would account for how he originally met the musician, who he was seen out with in Los Angeles while celebrating Halloween this past weekend.
“HA, you got me. I’m dating,” he wrote on Instagram on Saturday, Oct. 26. “But let’s be serious for a moment and talk about something that is actually important. I have been in recovery for over a year and part of that is helping out others.” Even if the dating app Raya is where Cherry and Affleck first met, the father of three was only using his dating-app admission to help a worthy cause called The Midnight Mission.
He continued his Instagram shout out by calling out the Raya community directly, writing that The Midnight Mission “is an incredible organization that helps those in need with housing, training, development and recovery. I’m making a donation today because there are people battling addiction every day that don’t have the resources and need help. @raya, you in? Who else is with me? Click the link in my bio to donate.”
Dating apps might be Affleck’s new way to find love and raise awareness for good causes — but for now his rumored relationship with Cherry still seems to be casual...for now.
