Sharon Stone Kicked Off Bumble After Guys Report Profile As Fake



Sharon Stone’s basic instinct drove her to Bumble for romance, but the dating app temporarily rejected her.

The actor tweeted Sunday night that Bumble had closed her account after “some users reported that it couldn’t possibly be me!” She also posted the official notice she received.

“Hey @bumble, is being me exclusionary?” she wrote. “Don’t shut me out of the hive.”

Hours later, a Bumble rep informed Stone that her account had been unblocked and promised her it wouldn’t happen again. “Thanks for bearing with us and hope you find your honey,” Bumble editorial director Clare O’Connor quipped.

But in the hours that Stone was excluded from the dating platform, Twitter users had some humorous takes on her Bumble struggle.

Stone, a 61-year-old mother of three, was linked to real estate mogul Angelo Boffa in 2018 but told People in October of that year that she didn’t mind not having a partner. 

“I think somewhere in the back of your mind you think maybe one day you won’t be a single parent,” she said at the time. “Then, eventually you realize, I think it’s better. I’m no longer hoping for someone.”

People smuggler ‘built fake Russia-Finland border posts’

Finland and Russia share a border which is 1,340km (840 miles) long

A man has been arrested in Russia for erecting fake border posts to trick four migrant workers into thinking they had entered Finland.

After reaching the posts, the man left the group to wander alone in what they believed was the EU country – but was actually a swampy forest in Vyborg.

After a while the four South Asian men were stopped by real border guards, who told them they were still in Russia.

The “smuggler” had reportedly made them pay over €10,000 ($11,000) each.

All five men were reportedly detained on 28 November.

On Wednesday, a court in St Petersburg fined the would-be migrants for immigration offences and ordered their deportation.

The fake smuggler is facing the more serious charge of fraud. He has been detained, pending trial.

Officials did not specify which country the men were originally from.

Footage posted on Russian social media appears to show the men being arrested. They are seen standing in the darkness among fir trees, holding their hands up as FSB border agents shine torches on them.
