BEN Affleck’s ex Ana de Armas is “dating” his “look-alike” Tinder exec Paul Boukadakis.
The rumored new romance comes as the actor reunites with Jennifer Lopez.
While Ana, 33, and Ben, 48, met on set of their film Deep Water in 2019 and dated through January 2021, both stars have moved on as the Knives Out actress is reportedly dating Paul, 37.
The new couple have been dating for a few months, as a source told Page Six: “Paul and Ana were introduced through friends. He is based in Austin, but splits his time between Texas and Santa Monica. He has been spending a lot of time with Ana before she left the US to film her new movie.”
The source added that things have been going well for the pair, noting that he has already introduced the actress his family.
Paul was the co-founder and CEO at Wheel, Tinder acquired in 2017 to add video collaboration.
He became Tinder’s VP of special initiatives, while he is working to create content for the app including the platform’s “Swipe Night.”
Before her romance with Paul, Ana and Ben were first linked in 2020 when they were spotted visiting her native Cuba.
A source told Entertainment Tonight that the couple “instantly had a connection.”
The insider added that the actress has supported Ben’s battle against addiction.
Following rumors that the couple were drifting apart, a source told People in January 2021 that they had gone their separate ways after being together for almost a year.
The source revealed: “Ben is no longer dating Ana.
“She broke it off. Their relationship was complicated. Ana doesn’t want to be Los Angeles based and Ben obviously has to since his kids live in Los Angeles.”
Just months after his split from Ana, Ben rekindled his romance with former flame Jennifer, 51.
The Sun exclusively revealed that JLo was moving to Los Angeles to be closer to Ben and further away from Miami, which painfully reminds her of ex Alex Rodriguez.
Things seem to be heating up between Ben and Jennifer, as they were seen making out just days ago.
In photos obtained by Page Six, the famous couple embraced one another while at Nobu in Malibu, California over the weekend.
According to the outlet, the pair were surrounded by family to celebrate her sister Linda’s birthday.
At one point during their love fest, the hitmaker caressed the actor’s face, while he then proceeds to nuzzle JLo’s neck.
A source previously told People: “They enjoyed a Sunday family dinner together… everyone seemed great and had fun.”
The insider added: “Jen and Ben sat next to each other and were very affectionate. They held hands under the table…”
