Love for the modern age. Celebrities are just like Us, they turn to dating apps to find romance and start relationships.
Stars including Eric Stonestreet and Chelsea Handler have been open about their use of dating apps, such as Tinder and Bumble, but even more famous folks have opted to use Raya.
Raya launched in 2015 and prides itself on being “an exclusive dating and networking platform for people in creative industries.”
Demi Lovato has been a longtime user of online relationship sites. She revealed in her documentary,Simply Complicated, that she chose Raya after her split from Wilmer Valderrama in 2016.

Since then, she’s used the app when she’s single, but in 2020 she tried to rejoin after deleting her profile and she was shut down.
“I just deleted it out of respect to the person I was with, then we broke up and I went to get back on [I couldn’t],” the former Disney Channel star told Harper’s Bazaar in its April 2020 issue. “And I was like, ‘You know what? It’s fine. I don’t need to be on this because I think I’m supposed to be alone right now.’”
Channing Tatum joined the dating app following his split from Jessie J in November 2019, a source told Us Weekly exclusively.
According to the insider, the Magic Mike actor’s profile as of December 2019 read, “And yes, I used to be a stripper.” The source added that his profile song was “Brown Sugar” by D’Angelo.
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina star, Kiernan Shipka, explained that even though she rarely has time to date, she is a big fan of Raya.
“Meeting people has always been kind of a funny situation for me, growing up not going to school, but knowing everyone who went to the schools in LA. It’s good, I’ve found ways,” Shipka told Stylist in March 2019 of her dating prowess.

In July 2022, the former Bachelorette revealed that she joined the dating app after her split from John Hersey. “I thought it was gonna be, like, a long wait list,” the Washington native explained in a TikTok video. “My friends told me it takes a long time to get approved, so I was like, ‘I’ll apply now, and then six months from now I’ll start dating.’ Well, they approved me right away.”
The Bachelor alum admitted that she “wasn’t ready” for another romantic relationship so she selected the option saying she was looking for friends. “I matched with someone and we’re talking,” she told her followers. “And then I get unmatched. Just for friends!” In her caption for the post, she quipped, “I joined Raya and can’t even make a friend.”

The Olympian may have found love with Houston Texas safety Jonathan Owens, but when the couple first matched on Raya, the football player actually didn’t know the girl on the app was the gymnastics GOAT! 
“Her work ethic was really the first thing that caught my eye,” Owens said in the third episode of her Simone vs Herself series on Facebook Watch, released in June 2021. “I never really watched gymnastics before I first started talking to her. When I met her, I honestly didn’t know who she was. It was just like, ‘Oh, she has a lot of followers — she must be pretty good or something.”

The actress compared Raya to “looking through an Us Weekly” during a September 2020 appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen. “I did terribly too. I got stood up, and I didn’t match with anyone. And my friends gave me this sort of bloated sense of false confidence. They were like, ‘You should try it. You will do great.’ It was a car wreck,” she revealed, noting that the person who skipped out on their date owned a restaurant. “But, you know, I love being able to be in the conversation, I have to say. Like, I definitely had fun with it. And I’ve always wanted to go on a blind date, but my life got in the way of that, so I thought, like, online dating might satiate that desire. And no, it was a real wake-up call. But it was fun, and yes, there were lots of exciting people.”
