It's only been days since the fifth season of Selling Sunset was released on Netflix, but that doesn't mean we haven't powered (read: binged) our way through. PSA, if you haven't already, what the hell are you waiting for?

Anyway, for those who have made some headway into the season, you may have been shocked to hear newbie Emma Hernan's revelation that she matched with Ben Affleck on a celebrity-verified dating app. Yep, the same Ben Affleck that's engaged to Jennifer Lopez. So, what's the tea?

ICYMI, during a chat with Chrishell Stause, Emma says: 'He [Ben] may or may not have been texting me. He may or may not have asked to grab coffee a few times. I didn’t go.' A shocked Chrishell replies, 'You could’ve foiled Bennifer! He was on the hunt,' referencing Ben and J-Lo's rekindled romance.

'Right!? It was right before that,' Emma responds. 'So, maybe that wouldn’t have happened. We have the Boston connection. So, that was his opening pick-up line.'

But, Ben's reps have denied the claims, telling People magazine that he has not been on Raya (the dating app in question) for quite some time. 'Raya has confirmed that he has not been an active member for several years,' a representative for the newly-engaged actor said.

Previously, in 2019, Ben – who was married to actor Jennifer Garner for 13 years – responded to rumours that he was on Raya, jokingly posting on Instagram: 'HA, you got me. I'm dating.'
