A source previously told Us Weekly that the actor, 47, met Cherry on the private dating app Raya “a few months ago” and that the duo have seen each other a few times since — including Saturday, October 26, when they were photographed together at a Halloween party in West Hollywood. “They’re very into each other,” the source added.

But it seems the romance is casual. A different source explained to us that Affleck and Cherry’s relationship is “nothing that serious at this time.”

The new romance made headlines just after Affleck admitted that his night on Saturday was a “slip” in his sobriety. The Justice League actor was filmed stumbling out of a West Hollywood hotel, losing his balance on the street, and holding onto a car to steady himself.

“Well, you know, it happens,” Affleck told photographers on Sunday, October 27, in a video posted by the Daily Mail. “It’s a slip, but I’m not going to let it derail me.”
