A 20-year-old woman who matched with Matthew Perry on a celebrity dating app claims she has been kicked off the service.

The move came after the woman in question breached the app’s privacy rules.

Kate Haralson went viral this week after posting a private FaceTime call she had with the “Friends” star after meeting him on elite dating app Raya in May 2019.

Haralson originally “met” the 51-year-old actor when she was 19, and she alleges that the actor asked to move their conversation to FaceTime shortly after matching.

While revealing how she matched with Perry, Haralson called out the actor for hooking up with her when she was all of 19.

She now claims to have been removed from the app after her leaked video grabbed headlines.

Haralson said of her alleged removal from the app: “I should have expected that would happen. I feel fine about it. I never really used it anymore anyways.”

The now-deleted TikTok video shows a short clip of the pair playing a game of “20 Questions.”

“I don’t think he minded that (I was 19),” she continued. “It kind of felt weird talking to someone my dad’s age and it just felt not right, especially when he knew how young I was.”

She alleges, however, that the actor asked her at one point, “Am I as old as your dad?”

Haralson said she took down her video within less than 24 hours of posting it because she “did feel a little bit bad,” stating that Perry really was a “nice guy.”

Even so, she concluded: “It’s not really OK for these older guys to be talking to such young girls.”

The app’s website clearly details its strict guidelines to protect its members’ privacy.

On her decision to post the private call on TikTok, the blonde beauty said, “A lot of people were saying I’m a bully and mean for posting this, and it made me feel kind of bad, but at the same time, I feel like a lot of guys in Hollywood are talking to all these young girls and it’s something that I think a lot of people should be aware of.”

Hollywood star Ben Affleck recently found himself in a situation similar to the Perry.

TikTok user nivinejay, who assumed she matched with a fake account, shared a video of actor Ben Affleck asking her why she unmatched him from the dating app Raya.

The video features the 48-year-old actor asking her on Instagram: “Nivine, why did you unmatch me? It’s me.”
