Over the weekend, Ben Affleck , 47, made headlines after he struggled to walk to his chauffeured car following the UNICEF Masquerade Ball.
Affleck was joined in the car by a mystery blonde, who has been identified as musician Katie Cherry, who scores movies.
After their night at the ball, Ben and Katie hit up an Los Angeles casino, where he apparently won $1,500 at the poker table!
In photos obtained by TMZ, Ben was seen sitting with Katie at a poker table, which already had nine people.
According to sources, the pit boss made an exception and made room for Ben at the full table. He reportedly got $20,000 in chips, but only stayed for 12 minutes.
Us Weekly reports that Affleck and Cherry met on dating app Raya “a few months ago.”
Before the rumors start flying, another source insisted to People magazine, “Ben has dated over the last year, but is not seriously involved with anyone at this time.”
Ben recently acknowledged the reports that he was on Raya, joking on Instagram, “HA, you got me. I'm dating.”
Another insider emphasized to Page Six, “He seems to want a real partner and is not looking to date a celebrity. He is private and is in a good space right now. He has his kids and is focusing on work, but is ready to be in love again.”
A few weeks ago, Ben was spotted on a date with a mystery brunette at the Hotel Bel-Air. An eyewitness told the site, “It seemed innocent, like a first date. He was in a good [mood], and they both seemed really into each other. There was no overt PDA or anything like that. They were having dinner.”
