De Beste Datingsites
Sharon Stone was left fuming when her profile on dating site Bumble was blocked, after users assumed it was fake and reported it.
The 61-year-old actress told followers on Twitter on Monday that she’d turned to the site in a bid to find love, but her quest was halted from the get-go when suspicions rose about her profile.
“I went on the @bumble dating sight (sic) and they closed my account,” she wrote. “Some users reported that it couldn’t possibly be me! Hey @bumble is being me exclusionary ? Don’t shut me out of the hive.”
The Basic Instinct star also shared a screenshot of the message she’d received from Bumble upon having her account blocked, which read: “We’re committed to keeping Bumble safe, which means we have to enforce certain rules when our values are violated. Your account has been blocked because we’ve received several reports about your profile being fake.”
Bumble later reactivated Stone’s account and apologized to the star on Twitter: “There can only be one 👑 Stone. Looks like our users thought you were too good to be true. We’ve made sure that you won’t be blocked again. We hope that everyone in our community takes a sec to verify their profiles. (Catherine Tramell from Basic Instinct gets a pass today!)
Stone then replied with a link to her Woman of the Year speech from the GQ Awards earlier this year, writing alongside it: “Dear Bumble, you are confusing my honesty with your fantasy. This is a disservice to the men and women who partake in @bumble. I am Sharon, I am a woman. Thank you.”

Bumble representative Liz Song also verified to Forbes Monday night that Stone’s account was back up and running.
“Being the icon that she is, we can understand how so many of our users felt it was too good to be true once they noticed her profile wasn’t photo verified,” Song explained. “Photo verification is just one of the many ways to connect with confidence in Bumble. In light of our mixup with Sharon Stone, we’d like to extend an invitation for her to come to Austin and allow us to host her at the hive for a few hours of profile prep and great food.”
Stone is believed to have been single since splitting from her last boyfriend Enzo Cursio. The pair were last seen together in late 2018.
Speaking to People magazine previously about her relationship status, the screen star insisted she’s more than happy to be a single mother to her three sons — Roan, 19, Laird, 14, and Quinn, 13.
“I think somewhere in the back of your mind you think maybe one day you won’t be a single parent,” she told the publication. “Then, eventually you realize, I think it’s better. I’m no longer hoping for someone.”
