Paulina Porizkova, 56, recently took to Instagram to complain that she was kicked off of Hinge because of guideline violations. “I didn’t even get to post my photo,” she wrote under a selfie.

The model continued, stating that “my name, it seems, is against guidelines?” and sharing that it wasn’t until she made a profile using a fake name that she was able to get back onto the app.

“I called, I emailed. No one bothered to reply. Then, a friend suggested I use a different phone number and my nickname. I got a few nice dates that way,” she shared.

A representative for Hinge told Page Six that the reason she was given the boot is that “people thought having her on Hinge was too good to be true and immediately reported her profile for being fake.”

Porizkova shouldn’t have to worry much longer when it comes to the romance department, as Hinge has apologized, commenting on her post that “we are so sorry for the heartache we’ve caused you! We want everyone to have a positive Hinge experience that ultimately leads to finding love.”
