The Justice League actor is being linked to musician Katie Cherry, whom Us Weekly reports he met on the exclusive dating site Raya. While, a source tells ET that Affleck is not dating anyone seriously right now, the pair has been photographed together multiple times. ET has also reached out to his rep for comment.
Affleck and Cherry were spotted grabbing coffee together at a Starbucks on Saturday morning, while out together in Los Angeles. The pair sat together at a table and chatted while enjoying their coffee.
Hours later, the two were photographed spending time together at the UNICEF Masquerade Ball, where Cherry was reportedly spotted helping the actor following his alleged sobriety slip, walking with the actor after the event, where he had his arm wrapped around her shoulders.
Affleck was approached by photographers the following day, and while he didn't address his rumored romance, he did comment on reports that he'd imbibed at the event.
"You know, it happens. Just slipped," he said, appearing to still be in good spirits. "But I’m not going to let it derail me."
A source told ET on Sunday, "Sobriety is difficult for anyone struggling with addiction. Ben has been honest about his recovery and takes it day by day."
"He never said he wouldn’t slip up," the source added.
Meanwhile, Affleck himself has made light of reports that he's been using the Raya dating app to promote the charity The Midnight Mission.
"HA, you got me. I’m dating. But let’s be serious for a moment and talk about something that is actually important," Affleck wrote in an Instagram post on Saturday. "I have been in recovery for over a year and part of that is helping out others."
"@themidnightmission is an incredible organization that helps those in need with housing, training, development and recovery," he continued. "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."
"Ben has finally taken that step toward a healthier lifestyle and his family couldn't be happier," the source told ET, adding that the actor has also been spending more time with his three children with his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner -- 13-year-old Violet, 10-year-old Seraphina and 7-year-old Samuel.
"Ben wants to date but knows he needs to take it slowly," the source noted. "He wants to ensure he is healthy enough to be a supportive partner. Ben is looking to date someone who is supportive of his clean lifestyle. It has been a long road."
