Find it hard to believe that a supermodel would turn to a dating app to meet men? Well, apparently, so does the dating app itself.
Former supermodel Paulina Porizkova, 56, wrote on Instagram that she downloaded Hinge after her recent breakup from writer Aaron Sorkin, only to be “booted” from the dating app - presumably because the app is suspicious of celebrity impersonators .
On Thursday, Porizkova posted a selfie on Instagram calling for Hinge in the caption to deactivate her account.
"OK. What's wrong @scharnier?" The star began, explaining, “I signed up a while ago and was immediately kicked out for violating the guidelines. I couldn't even post my photo. My name seems to be against the guidelines? emailed. Nobody bothered to answer. "
She continued, “Then a friend suggested that I use a different phone number and my nickname. That way, I got some nice dates. And boom, now when I need it - I discover @hinge fired me again! What is a lady do?"
Porizkova also added several hashtags to her caption: "# bootedoffhinge # sexyhasnoexpirationdate # betweenjloandbettywhite # nofilter # noretouch #nophotoshop"
Hinge confirmed to PEOPLE that other users thought Porizkova was a fraud and reported her profile as a fake.

She's not the first star to lose dating app privileges: Sharon Stone was also locked out of Bumble when users reported her profile as fake. And even celebrities from the exclusive, verified app Raya are trying to prove who they are - just ask Ben Affleck!
The former supermodel's dating app fiasco comes just days after she confirmed her breakup with boyfriend Aaron Sorkin in an open Instagram post.

“I am so grateful for his presence in my life. He helped me heal and take me back. There may not be a better man, no man who is more sincerely 'good'. He's brilliant and funny and funny and sexy. No matter how much we wish we were poultry - we're still a duck and a goose, "explained Porizkova.
She continued, “Thanks @dailymail for this somewhat silly paparazzi shot? . As unfiltered as I normally am, this concerns another person's privacy - so that's all I will ever say on the subject. "
However, Porizkova doesn't let her recent breakup (or her hinge ban) stop her from living her best life. She posted a goofy shot with buddy Liz Carey showing the two topless with masks over their breasts. "We were told we had to wear masks again, so @thelizcarey and I please," she wrote.

She had announced that she had been hurt by his actions but was ready to date again and enjoy sex in her 50s.
"What I found out is that sex gets better as I get older, which kind of scared me ... it turns out that it only gets better because I know my body so much better," she wrote in a comment. ed for Yahoo. “Whatever confidence and wisdom you gain with age, it pays off at 50. Now I take my pleasure where I know I've had it or where I can. I'm not there to please the guy ; I am there to be satisfied. "
