Paulina Porizkova ‘Booted Off’ Hinge Dating App – Twice!
Newly single Paulina Porizkova has proven dating apps are no place for supermodels after being kicked off of Hinge – twice.
Porizkova took to Instagram to publicly address her frustration with Hinge impeding her chances at finding love. “OK. What’s up, @hinge?” Porizkova wrote. “I signed up a while back, and was booted off instantly because I had violated guidelines. I didn’t even get to post my photo. My name, it seems, is against guidelines?”
The model said she went as far as contacting the app and never heard back from them, so she tried using a fake name which people presumed to be a catfish profile.
“I called, I emailed. No one bothered to reply. Then, a friend suggested I use a different phone number and my nickname. I got a few nice dates that way. And boom, now when I need it- I discover @hinge has booted me off again! What’s a lady to do?” The caption was followed by a chain of comical hashtags including “#bootedoffhinge #sexyhasnoexpirationdate #betweenjloandbettywhite.”
The post caught the attention of the dating app. “We are so sorry for the heartache we’ve caused you!” a spokesman for the app wrote. “We want everyone to have a positive Hinge experience that ultimately leads to finding love.” Apparently, users thought her profile was fake and was removed by moderators.
Porizkova recently split from screenwriter Aaron Sorkin and made their first and last public appearance together in April at the 2021 Oscars, which according to the model was their second date. The two split amicably and Porizkova announced their separation with a candid paparazzi photo of the two with a broken heart emoji between them followed by her appreciation for getting to know Sorkin.
“I’m so grateful for his presence in my life. He helped heal me and reclaim myself,” she wrote. “There truly may be no better man, no man who’s more genuinely “good.” He’s brilliant and witty and funny and sexy. But it doesn’t matter how much we may wish we were birds of a feather – we’re still a duck and a goose.”
Porizkova was previously married to Cars lead singer Ric Ocasek for 28 years before calling it quits in 2018. Together they have two sons Jonathan, 27 and Oliver, 23. Ocasek died in 2019, and he left Proizkova out of his will.
